Cape Town - Andrew Hudson’s tenure as Cricket South Africa’s convenor of selectors will come to an end later this year.

According to the Cape Times, Hudson will step down from his role in June this year.

Hudson, 50, on Wednesday made himself unavailable for nomination to be re-elected as convenor of the panel he has presided over since May 2010.

The contracts of all four panel members - the other being Shafiek Abrahams, Hussein Manack and Linda Zondi - came to an end after this year's Cricket World Cup in March.

The provincial union's CEOs and presidents were informed that they must vote for a new selection panel, with the deadline for nominations being Thursday, April 30.

The current panel can be re-appointed if they are again nominated.

Hudson's reasons to step down were to focus on his career as a banker as well as spend more time with his family.

Hudson, who was an opening batsman, played 35 Tests and 89 ODIs for the Proteas in the 1990s.
