CRICKET: Amiss out.

FORMER England opening batsman Dennis Amiss announced yesterday that he would retire from his job as chief executive at Warwickshire in the winter.

Amiss, who played 50 Tests, took charge at Edgbaston in 1994 and and has helped transform the ground into one of the country's best Test venues.

As a player Amiss, who joined Warwickshire in 1958, hit 35,000 runs in country cricket and joined the small band of batsmen to score 100 first-class centuries.

As an administrator he has been involved in the improvement in England's Test team in his role as chairman of the ECB's International Teams Committee.
