Former England Chairman of Selectors Geoff Miller OBE will be confirmed as Derbyshire County Cricket club president at their annual general meeting on 26 March.
As England selector, Miller presided over one of the most successful eras in English cricket history and retired just before England’s 5-0 whitewash in Australia. During his tenure, England reached number one in both Test and one-day formats of the game.
Geoff is a former England international who played in 34 Tests and 25 ODIs for England from 1976 to 1984 and also a Derbyshire local legend, having played for the side between 1973 and 1990. The all-rounder took 888 wickets and scored 12,027 runs, including two centuries, in 283 career first-class matches.
Geoff said: “I’m looking forward to my term in office. It is an honour, a privilege and a pleasure to be able to serve the county in this way.”
