Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has congratulated Marais Erasmus on becoming the second South African to stand as an on-field umpire in 100 first-class matches when he officiated in the third Test match between England and the West Indies at Lord's.

This is also Erasmus' 45th Test match.

Rudi Koertzen is the only other South African to have stood in 100 first-class matches.

"Congratulations once again to Marais as he achieves another landmark in his stellar career," commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.

"What a special moment it is for him and what better place for him to achieve this milestone than at iconic Lord's.

"He continues to be a role model for all our match officials and we are immensely proud of him. We wish him everything of the best on this special occasion," concluded Lorgat.
