Mel Jones (OAM) will step down from the Cricket Australia Board at the next CA Annual General Meeting in October. Jones has decided not to stand for re-election due to her extensive media and other work commitments in Australia and overseas.

Jones joined the board as a Director in December 2019, bringing her substantial experience and expertise in playing, game development, high performance, media and international relations.
 
“It has been an honour to serve for three years on the CA Board but my future work commitments, particularly given that I will be overseas for many months of the year, mean that I will not be able to devote the time required to fully support my fellow Board members after this year,” she said.

“Consequently I will not be standing for re-election and will complete my three-year term at the next AGM.
 
“I would like to thank the Chairs and Board members, Cricket Australia staff and committee members and wish all those involved in Australian Cricket every success as we embark on an exciting new strategy and build on the game’s great foundation for the future.
 
“I am delighted, of course, to be able to continue my long-standing connection to cricket through my commentary, sporting and business interests and broad range of cricket relationships.”  
 
Cricket Australia Chair Lachlan Henderson thanked Jones for her service and contribution on the Board.
 
“Mel has been an outstanding member of our Board and her unique perspective and insights have been invaluable as we have set the strategy to ensure the continuing future health of the game,” he said.
 
“Mel has made an enormous contribution to cricket through her playing days and subsequent involvement in coaching, commentary and work in the community, and will continue to do so.
