Dougie Brown, the Scotland, Warwickshire and former England allrounder, has been elected as the new chairman of the Professional Cricketers' Association. Brown has recently returned from Scotland's World Cup campaign and takes over from Martyn Ball who retired from first-class cricket in January.

Brown beat off competition from two other former England players, Lancashire allrounder Dominic Cork and Sussex captain Chris Adams. He said: "I'm delighted that the players have chosen me to represent them as their chairman. It's a great honour and I intend to continue and build on the great work already being undertaken at all levels of the PCA, both on and off the pitch."

Brown had been vice-chairman of the PCA for the past five years, and Warwickshire's representative on the executive board for a decade. PCA chief executive Richard Bevan added: "Martyn Ball has done a fantastic job for us and Dougie's appointment is testimony to the esteem and trust placed in him by his peers.

"Dougie is a popular, thinking man's cricketer, with a wholehearted 'never say die' attitude. He has attributes that every cricketer can identify with and in his role for the association over the past decade he has shown himself to be a passionate believer in all we stand for."

Brown has played 25 ODIs, nine of which came for England in 1997-98 when he was part of the squad that won in Sharjah.
