The 28-year-old returns to the international set-up in a new role working alongside national selector Ed Smith
James Taylor has been appointed as England’s full-time independent selector.
The former Nottinghamshire and England batsman was forced to retire prematurely in 2016 due to a serious heart condition.
The 28-year-old will now return to the international set-up in a new role, working alongside with national selector Ed Smith, who was appointed in April after James Whitaker left the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in a restructure.
Smith and Taylor join England coach Trevor Bayliss in completing England’s new-look selection panel.
“I’m thrilled to be taking up this role with the ECB and once again supporting the England set-up,” said Taylor.
“This is an important role and it’s a huge honour to be appointed.
“I’m excited to be given the opportunity to work alongside Ed Smith and can’t wait to get started.”
