Croxley to sponsor Rudolph

Cape Town - For over a century, Croxley has been synonymous with the best quality paper and other stationery products.

“Today Croxley is proud to be associated with another century-maker - Jacques Rudolph, South Africa’s stylish left-hander who has made a come-back to the Proteas Test side this season,” says Trevor Girnun, managing director of Silveray Statmark Company, distributors of Croxley.

“This famous name on Jacques Rudolph’s flashing bat, will further cement Croxley’s association with style and quality for the duration of the sponsorship.”

His Test debut, in 2003, was when Rudolph made his mark on the international cricket scene with a double century - an unbeaten 222 - against Bangladesh in Chittagong. That year he was also voted South African Cricketer of the Year.

As part of the Proteas’ Test squad in the current New Zealand series, Rudolph hopes to bounce back to the form that saw him top SA’s batting averages the last time South Africa ventured into the Black Caps’ territory, in 2004.

After five years away from the international arena, Rudolph now returns to the SA side. He played in all five home Tests against Australia and Sri Lanka.

In an interview just before leaving for New Zealand, Rudolph commented: “I am proud of Croxley’s sponsorship and will do everything to ensure that the company’s faith in me is justified. Having that famous name on my bat gives me an added responsibility - and incentive - to do well.”
In addition to playing for his country, Springs-born Jacques Rudolph, has played for South Africa 'A', Africa XI, the Eagles, the Titans, Northerns and Yorkshire.
