Proctor appointed CSA convener of selectors

Mike Proctor has quit as an ICC match referee to become the convener of selectors for Cricket South Africa.
Proctor, who officiated in 47 tests, 154 one-day internationals and 15 Twenty20 internationals since becoming a match referee in 2002, will leave the ICC after the limited-overs matches between Pakistan and West Indies and also Zimbabwe's series with Sri Lanka.
"On behalf of the ICC, I would like to thank Mike for his service as an Emirates Elite Panel Match Referee," ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat said Monday in a statement. "Speaking from personal experience, I know that his new role as CSA's convener of selectors, which he will assume on 1 December, will be a challenging and rewarding one.
"However, I also know that Mike will bring to it all the cricket wisdom he has acquired over more than 40 years of top-level involvement ... Mike carries with him the best wishes for the future of all those associated with the ICC."
Procter was appointed last Friday by CSA, which also said Mickey Arthur's contract as national team coach had been extended. Both appointments are through to the 2011 World Cup.
Procter was restricted during his playing days as a fast bowler because apartheid kept South Africa out of international sport. He coached his national team when it was allowed back into international play in 1991.
