- From the section Cricket
New Leicestershire chief executive Wasim Khan says he is "honoured and privileged" to become the first British Asian boss in English cricket.
The 43-year-old former Derbyshire, Sussex and Warwickshire batsman is to take up his position at Grace Road in January 2015.
The team have not won a County Championship game since 2012, but Khan says he is taking on the role with his "eyes wide open" and wants to make Leicestershire "the leading non-Test match club in the country" within five years.
