A batsman who made limited appearances for Victoria in the early 1990s, Geoff Allardice became better known as an administrator after he retired from playing. A product of the Melbourne University club, which also turned out high-profile administrators such as James Sutherland, Malcolm Gray and Allen Robertson, Allardice was brought in to Cricket Australia by Sutherland, the chief executive, to become the organisation's umpiring manager. A chemical engineer by training, Allardice brought a methodical, analytical nature to his role and later became Cricket Australia's general manager of cricket operations. After a decade with CA, Allardice was chosen as the ICC's general manager of cricket operations in 2012, filling the role formerly held by Dave Richardson.
