Australian media report that former test opening batsman David Boon has been appointed an International Cricket Council match referee and will quit his job as an Australian selector.
The 50-year-old Boon, who played 107 tests and 181 one-day internationals for Australia between 1984 and 1996, will also resign as a board member of Australian selector.
Boon's first match as a referee will in Zimbabwe for the Pakistan tour in September, the Australian Associated Press reported.
A stocky right-hander with an array of powerful shots and a casual attitude to authority, Boon scored more than 7,400 test runs at an average of 43 and almost 6,000 runs in ODIs at 37. He was also an accomplished fielder.
