Leicestershire CCC has announced a change in four-day captain with Matthew Hoggard passing over the captaincy to Ramnaresh Sarwan. One-Day captain Josh Cobb has been appointed to the position of vice-captain.
Hoggard said: “I have enjoyed being captain over the past three years but I feel that it is the right time to hand over the reins.”
Chief Executive Mike Siddall said: “The Club wishes to acknowledge the contribution Matthew has made as captain of the Club over the past three seasons, leading the team to a fantastic third t20 trophy win last year. We now have the opportunity to put a succession plan in place for the future.”
Head Coach Phil Whitticase said: “I’ve really enjoyed working with Matthew over the past three years, especially during our successful t20 campaign. It is important for everyone to get behind Ronnie as we look to take the Club forward.”
