Callum Parkinson has been installed as Leicestershire’s County Championship captain for the rest of the season.
Parkinson, 25, has stepped up from vice-captain to replace Colin Ackermann, who will remain as T20 skipper, while Lewis Hill will continue to captain the club’s 50-over side.
Ackermann had led the red-ball team since 2020.
Parkinson was the club’s leading wicket-taker in 2021, with 50 wickets, and he has taken 12 so far this season.
“I have learned so much from Colin during my time as vice-captain. I will continue to lean on him for advice, whilst implementing my own ideas and direction to win matches for Leicestershire,” he said.
Leicestershire director of cricket Claude Henderson added: “We have decided that now is the right time for a change and recognised Callum’s qualities are ideally suited to leading the team in four-day cricket for the remainder of the season.”
