Jhulan Goswami, Heather Knight and Eoin Morgan have become the latest members of the MCC's world cricket committee ahead of the body's meeting at Lord's on Monday and Tuesday. Alastair Cook, though, has stepped down from the committee "to concentrate on the final years of his glittering playing career", leaving the committee with 14 members.
"We are thrilled to welcome Jhulan, Heather and Eoin to the World Cricket committee. These are three players who have excelled at the very top of the international game and their knowledge of how the elite level of cricket works will be an advantage to the committee," Mike Gatting, the committee's chair, said in a statement.
"It is also important that we are growing the female representation on the committee with the growth that women's cricket has enjoyed in recent years. Jhulan and Heather join Clare Connor and Suzie Bates who can all offer first-hand insight into the women's game."
The committee, funded entirely by the MCC, conduct research, particularly into technological advances and the biomechanical elements of the game.
Knight and Morgan have both led their teams to ODI World Cup glory, and Lord's, home of the MCC and the world cricket committee, was the venue of their triumphs: Knight led England women to the title in 2017 and Morgan did the same with the England men's team in 2019. Goswami, India's captain at various points in her two-decade-long international career, retired at Lord's last year as the highest wicket-taker in women's ODIs.
