Protea selectors bowled out

2010-01-27 10:44

CONVENOR of selectors Mike Procter today confirmed that Cricket

South Africa (CSA) has sacked the Proteas’ selection team.

This follows Proteas coach Mickey Arthur’s announcement yesterday

that he had resigned.

Arthur’s crumbling relationship with skipper Graeme Smith was

reportedly one of the reasons the coach decided to leave his job.

CSA will officially announce his resignation in East London, the

Eastern Cape, today.

Earlier today, Procter told Talk Radio 702’s Stephen Grootes that a

meeting held last week with CSA bosses did not go well.

“Whatever transpired at that meeting led them to get rid of Mickey

and also the selectors,” he said.
