Victor Mpitsang named new CSA selection convenor
Mpitsang’s cricket career features two One-Day International appearances for the Proteas before injury curtailed his international ambitions

Cricket South Africa (CSA) appointed Victor Mpitsang as National Convenor of Selectors.

“The role for the National Convenor of Selectors is an incredibly important one, which is why the process of appointing the eventual candidate has taken so long. We needed to be certain that we have left the role in the safest hands possible and Victor’s credentials speak for themselves," CSA Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith said.  

Mpitsang’s cricket career features two One-Day International appearances for the Proteas before injury curtailed his international ambitions. He bounced back and ended his career with 103 First-Class, 100 List A and 23 T20 matches under his belt when he announced his retirement in 2012.

“I’m looking forward to seeing what he brings to the role and the stamp that he will put on our national teams and I know he is excited to get down to business as soon as he possibly can,” Smith added.  

The 40-year-old who hails from Kimberley, has an impressive record of roles that that span various areas of the cricket landscape over the last eight years.

"I’m really looking forward to this next chapter and all that it brings. The Proteas teams are a vital part of the cricket eco-system and there are areas that need our immediate attention, which I’m itching to get started on,” Mpitsang concluded.
