Mike Atherton will replace Christopher Martin-Jenkins as cricket correspondent of The Times after England's tour of New Zealand early next year.

Atherton, who has made his name as a journalist on The Sunday Telegraph, and is considered one of the major successes of a player becoming a writer, will continue with his Sky Sports commentary alongside his new brief. Martin-Jenkins, who was handed the Peter Smith memorial award at the Cricket Writers' Dinner in September, will take a role as senior cricket columnist.

It is the first major reshuffle of the broadsheet newspapers since 2002 when Angus Fraser retired from playing to take up the main role at The Independent and Derek Pringle moved to The Daily Telegraph.
