    James Whitaker will step down as England’s national selector at the end of March as part of an overhaul of how the country selects players.

    Whitaker had been a selector for a decade and chief selector since 2013.

    Under its revamp, England will introduce a scouting system with “discipline-specific scouts”.

    They will provide information to a panel made up of a new national selector, a full-time independent England selector and the head coach.

    “The new approach will allow us to see more players throughout the county game, more often, and simplify the selection process,” England director of cricket Andrew Strauss said.

    “We will have a greater body of information, deeper insight into the talent we can pick and a better understanding of who to help develop across the red-ball and white-ball games.”

    The England and Wales Cricket Board says it hopes to have Whitaker’s replacement in place in time for the next selections, England’s Test series against Pakistan in May.
