Sydney Sixers GM Stuart Clark Wants Review Of Cricket New South Wales
Former Test seamer and departing Sydney Sixers GM Stuart Clark "has ruled himself out of the running" to be Cricket New South Wales' next CEO but "has launched a stinging critique of the game in the state, saying a review was 'essential,'" according to Andrew Wu of the SYDNEY MORNING HERALD. Clark announced in November that "he would step down from the Sixers when his contract expires in May because he did not want to be pigeonholed as a cricket administrator." Clark said, ''I'm not interested. If I don't get out now I'll never get out.'' Clark "fears for the direction of the game in the NSW, which he represented with distinction in a career that spanned 14 seasons and yielded 24 Test appearances." Clark said, ''The review of cricket in NSW is essential because we're getting left behind. After finishing seventh and eighth in the Big Bash and not doing so well in first-class and one-day competitions, our cricket's not working. We need a good wholehearted look at everything in cricket" (SMH, 1/16).
