Derbyshire all-rounder and PCA Vice Chair, Anuj Dal, has been confirmed as the Club’s rep in the Players’ Committee for the 2023 season. 

Dal, who enjoyed a stellar year with bat and ball in 2022, has also been an important cog in matters off the field, both for Derbyshire across the wider game, as part of his senior role in the PCA.

Alongside England Women captain, Heather Knight, and under PCA Chair, James Harris, Dal will lead this important group of players, which has the ability to vote on all issues affecting the entire PCA membership.

Elected by their teammates via the terms of the constitution, the PCA representatives are the voice of the players’ union in the dressing rooms across the 18 counties, eight women’s regions and England squads, with each professional domestic team now having a single vote on the Committee.

Reps have the responsibility of communicating important topics of discussion to their teammates as well as raising any concerns within their team and then liaising back to the PCA.

For the first time in the Committee’s history the England Men’s team are now represented in a voting capacity with Chris Woakes taking the role ,with each of the eight Women’s regions also having PCA reps.

At the 2023 PCA AGM, Chair James Harris was ratified for a second term, along with the additions and changes to the Players’ Committee.

The Women’s Committee, which has voting rights on specific women only issues within the game, has been extended and is now made up of 11 players. The three England representatives of Heather Knight (captain), Nat Sciver-Brunt (vice captain) and Kate Cross (England rep) are joined by the eight reps from the women’s regions.

Dal said: “When I took the opportunity to be PCA Vice Chair, it was something I always knew it was something which would broaden my horizens and push me out of my comfort zone into an area which is quite challenging.

“These changes are important because we’ve seen how fast the women’s game has grown and the landscape is changing, so we need to reflect those changes as a players’ union. The engagement is a big thing we’re pushing this year, James, Heather and I are working on plans to speak with reps and get the feedback we need to cover the membership as a whole.”
