Dennis Amiss, the former England and Warwickshire batsman, has been formally retained as deputy chairman of the England and Wales Cricket Board. This will be Amiss' third year in the position, for which he stood unopposed.

"Dennis brings a wealth of cricketing knowledge and opinion to the boardroom table and is respected throughout the cricketing world," said Giles Clarke, the ECB chairman. "He has also served the game as ECB chairman of the cricket committee as well as in his current position as deputy chairman."

Amiss, 66, scored 11 centuries in 50 Tests for England, and was also the scorer of England's first ODI century.
