Lux Qoboshiyana, current convener of selectors at the Warriors franchise, has been appointed to South Africa’s national selection panel. Qoboshiyana replaced Ashwell Prince, who moved to Cobras as an assistant coach. Prince stepped down in September after traveling with the South Africa A side to Australia, where he acted in both selection and coaching capacities. He has since decided to concentrate on coaching in the long run.
Qoboshiyana was appointed for a two-year period after serving on the Border and Warriors selection panel. He played for Border before unity.
“On behalf of the cricket family I extend congratulations and good wishes to Lux on his appointment,” Haroon Lorgat, CSA chief executive said. “He takes on an important job and has the necessary experience to be a worthy selector after having served both at provincial and franchise levels. He can also draw on his experience as a former player.”
The rest of the panel remains the same with Linda Zondi, Errol Stewart and Hussein Manack currently serving on it. National coach Russell Domingo is also part of the committee.
