A player and administrator at the highest level for more than 20 years, Tim May joined the World Cricket committee for the January 2014 meeting.
After making his debut in December 1987, May played 24 Tests in a nine-year career as an accurate and intelligent off-spinner - collecting 75 wickets at an average of 34.74.
He formed a fine partnership in his later years with Shane Warne, the peak of which was the 1993 Ashes series in England when May collected 21 scalps and Warne a stunning 34.
May also played 47 ODIs for his country, and was a part of the team which lifted the World Cup trophy in India in 1987.
Following his retirement in 1996, he became CEO of the Australian Cricketers' Association and laterly assumed the same position for the Federation of International Cricketers' Associations.
He left the Australian position in 2005, but continued at FICA until 2013, when he announced his resignation from the post.
During his time in post he became known for his strong leadership, and was the driving force behind the 2004 World Cricket Tsunami Appeal match in 2004.
