DEPARTURE UNDER PRESSURE: Cricket New South Wales CEO DAVID GILBERT has resigned after 11 years in the role.

Gilbert claimed that it was "his decision to step down" and said that he "had not been influenced by outside pressures." Gilbert: "I am now at the point where I am ready to take on a new challenge" (AAP, 1/15). Gilbert "has been under intense scrutiny on several fronts, most notably the abysmal performance of the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League and the decision to appoint ANTHONY STUART as state coach over the highly credentialed TREVOR BAYLISS" (Sydney DAILY TELEGRAPH, 1/15).
