    Chappell out, Clarke in at Bradman Luncheon

    Aug 22, 2011

    The club wishes to advise members that Greg Chappell is no longer able to carry out his role as guest speaker at The Bradman Luncheon on Friday August 26.

    Following Cricket Australia’s review of Australian team performance that was announced late last week, Greg is now required to extend his stay in Sri Lanka for the second of the Australian team’s current tour.

    However, we are delighted to announce that Cricket Australia chairman Jack Clarke has agreed to step into the role as guest speaker at the luncheon.

    Jack Clarke has been at the helm of Australian cricket for the past three years and a Cricket Australia director since 1999.

    Before that, he spent 12 years as a South Australian Cricket Association board member and played club cricket in Adelaide.

    Jack is also a director of the Kerry Packer Cricket Foundation and a member of both the Lord’s Taverners and the South Australian Bradman Library Appeal Committee.

    Along with his connection to the Bradman name, his insights into the proposed restructure of Australia’s coaching and selection structure, the new Big Bash League and other issues surrounding cricket are sure to be fascinating.
