The ECB announced last weekend that Collier is to retire, and on Wednesday confirmed Havill - currently also the governing body's finance director and company secretary - will fulfil the chief executive's role.

Collier, 59, was scheduled to leave at the end of the current season after a decade in his position.

But an ECB press release said of Havill: "His appointment allows retiring CEO David Collier the time to conclude specific projects for both ECB and the International Cricket Council."
