"This is Shaun's second major assignment in the space of six months as he also handled the ICC Women's World Cup Final between England and India in July and follows in the footsteps of our senior umpire, Marais Erasmus, who officiated last year's ICC Champions Trophy Final," commented CSA Acting Chief Executive, Thabang Moroe.
"It shows in what high regard our match officials are held by both players and administrators."
