Melbourne, Aug 20 (IANS) Belinda Clark, Australia’s most successful women cricketer and captain, has emerged as one of the front runners for Cricket Australia’s (CA) newly created post of cricket supremo.

The 40-year-old Clark, who retired in 2005, has been impressive in her management skills and cricket knowledge since being appointed as the manager of the National Centre of Excellence in Brisbane.

The Daily Telegraph reported that the supremo besides looking at the men’s cricket team will also be in charge of the centre of excellence and work closely with state cricket performance and talent managers. The supremo will also be responsible for women’s high-performance cricket.

The appointment will reduce the role of current general manager of cricket operations Michael Brown, who still would be responsible for scheduling, player contracts, security and anti-corruption, state and other competitions, umpires and coaches.
