Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has congratulated Shaun George on his promotion to the ICC Test/ODI emerging panel of umpires.

“This is another feather in the cap for our collective fraternity of umpires,” commented CSA acting CEO, Thabang Moroe.

“Shaun has been given the responsibility of several high profile matches in recent times, including last year’s ICC Women’s World Cup final and this year’s ICC under-19 World Cup final and, with Marais Erasmus having been named ICC Umpire of the Year for the second year in a row, it shows what high regard there is for our match officials.

Moroe added: “Marais has been a wonderful inspiration and role model to all our umpires. Umpires are central to the game of cricket and we are fortunate to have an extremely competent group of match officials."
