The Australian Cricket Board (ACB) today expressed its sympathy and condolences to the family of former ACB Director and Test Cricketer, Barry Shepherd, who died yesterday.
Mr Shepherd was appointed an ACB Director in 1988 and served on the Board until 2000. During his 12-year stint he served on the ACB Executive, Interstate Cricket and Umpires Appointment committees.
ACB Chairman, Denis Rogers said that Mr Shepherd had been a valuable servant to cricket.

Mr Shepherd's long and dedicated career in cricket administration began in 1979 when he was elected to the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) Executive Committee. He was awarded Life Membership of the WACA in 1985.
Prior to joining the WACA committee, Shepherd played nine Tests for Australia and 87 games for Western Australia including 35 as captain in a career that spanned from 1955 to 1965.
