Campbell takes over in Papua New Guinea


Papua New Guinea have appointed former Australia cricketer Greg Campbell as their general manager. Campbell was previously operations manager at Cricket PNG and takes over from Bill Leane.

Campbell, 47, played four Test matches for Australia from 1989-1990 and will be in the role for the next 12 months. His first priority is to oversee the World Twenty20 qualifying matches in Dubai in March.

“The position was advertised globally and it is absolutely amazing that over 40 applicants expressed interest,” said the PNG chairman Mick Nades. “The board unanimously selected Greg because of his broad experience and the relationship he has developed with the staff, board, sponsors and the public at large with humility.

“The board strongly believes that he has the passion, talent and the drive to consolidate Cricket PNG's position in the world of cricket."
