Shane Watson elected as President of ACA

Melbourne: Former Australian all-rounder Shane Watson has been appointed as the President of Australian Cricketers Association (ACA).

Shane tweeted, “I am truly honoured to be elected as the President of the ACA as it evolves into the future. I have big shoes to fill with the people who have gone before me and I am super excited about this opportunity to continue to give back to the game that has given me so much.”

Watson will now be a part of an extended ten-person board which includes three new appointments too- current Australian players Pat Cummins and Kristen Beams and former Australian cricketer, Lisa Sthalekar.

“Through a period of immense change, the players have been, and will continue to be, a strong voice in protecting what’s made our game of cricket great, while embracing opportunities that change inevitably brings,” Watson said in an official statement.

During the Annual General Meeting, he was appointed as the President of ACA.
