Former Australia international Lisa Sthalekar is the first woman appointed president of the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations.

Sthalekar, who performed for the Australian girls’s group from 2001 to 2013 earlier than changing into a broadcast commentator, has changed Vikram Solanki as president, FICA introduced Tuesday.

‘New phase of the game’

“We are entering a new phase of the game which covers more cricket than ever before for our male and female players,” the 42-year-old Sthalekar stated in a press release. “More international locations are enjoying the sport, which demonstrates that cricket is actually changing into a world sport.

“I look forward to working on behalf of our member players’ associations and players, and in particular to working with the ICC to ensure that all players have their rights protected and can work in partnership with administrators to make our game even better.”

South African cricket great Barry Richards is among the notable former presidents of FICA, which was founded in 1988.

FICA’s executive chairman Heath Mills said Sthalekar’s previous roles as a board member of the Australian Cricketers’ Association and as an independent director of FICA showed her “long-standing commitment to the players’ association movement and advancing player rights.”

“Lisa was clearly the best candidate and her credentials are unparalleled as both a former player and broadcaster,” Mills stated.
