Sports, Cricket News – South Africa have given national contracts to four new players – Dean Elgar, Rory Kleinveldt, Marchant de Lange and Aaron Phagiso – in a bid to improve the national side’s performance, Cricket South Africa announced on Tuesday.
Ryan McLaren was re-awarded a contract after missing out over the last 12 months.
Six players, including retired wicketkeeper Mark Boucher and spinner Johan Botha – who asked to be released from his contract last October – dropped off the list.
“This is a very strong group of core players which combines youth and experience across the three formats,” selection convener Andrew Hudson said of the final 21 in a statement. Reuters
