Vernon Philander earns new contract with Cricket South Africa
Johannesburg: South African fast bowler Vernon Philander has been awarded a new contract by the Boards of Directors of Cricket South Africa on Saturday for the remaining season.
“Vernon has been an outstanding asset for the Proteas’ Castle Lager squad this summer and his successes have been well documented,” Sports24 quotes CSA CEO Gerald Majola, as saying.
“The awarding of a contract is well deserved and also gives the team management the tools to manage his workload correctly as the Proteas embark on a very busy international year that includes away tours to New Zealand, England and Australia as well as the ICC World Twenty20 in Sri Lanka.”
The Board acknowledged a proposal from Majola to have a workshop to evaluate the structure of the domestic professional competitions.
