Trevor Hohns has resigned as Australia's national selection chair in a monumental move just months out from the T20 World Cup and home Ashes series.

Hohns recently handed in his notice as chair to end his second stint in the role, The Age and the Sydney Morning Herald have revealed.

Hohns' time at the helm accumulates to 16 years, spanning 1995 to 2021. The former seven-Test Australia all-rounder stepped down from his position as chair following the shock Ashes series loss to England in 2005, before returning to the panel in 2014 and reclaiming the post as chair from Rod Marsh in 2016.

Hohns' replacement is expected to be former Australia T20 and one-day international captain George Bailey, who's now a member of the national selection panel. If Bailey is promoted to chair it will leave a spot on the panel open for a new appointment.

In Hohns' time as chair, Australia won the 1999 and 2003 ODI World Cups, had rare series wins in Pakistan in 1998 and India in 2004 and successfully defended the Ashes in England in 1997, 2001 and 2019.
