Hud­son stays as con­vener

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

FOR­MER South African open­ing bats­man An­drew Hud­son will re­main con­vener of the national se­lec­tion com­mit­tee, Cricket SA said in a state­ment yes­ter­day.

Shafiek Abrahams, who rep­re­sented the Proteas at full in­ter­na­tional level, has also been re­tained on the panel while two new ap­point­ments to the panel have been made.

KwaZulu- Na­tal wick­et­keeper Linda Zondi and for­mer Gaut­eng all-rounder Hus­sein Manack join the four- man panel, while head coach Rus­sell Domingo com­pletes the panel in an ex-of­fi­cio ca­pac­ity.

Zondi was a mem­ber of the first of­fi­cial national un­der-19 team un­der the aus­pices of the then United Cricket Board of South Africa to tour Eng­land in 1995.

Manack per­formed the dou­ble of 2 000 runs (three cen­turies) and 50 wick­ets dur­ing his first-class ca­reer.

CSA’s High Per­for­mance man­ager Vin­nie Barnes and trans­for­ma­tion man­ager Max Jor­daan also serve on the com­mit­tee in a non-vot­ing ca­pac­ity.

The new panel will serve un­til the next ICC World Cup in Aus­trala­sia in 2015.
