Hoskin joins Otago selection panel

Former Otago batsman Richard Hoskin has been named a selector for the side.

Hoskin, who played 80 games for Otago, has recently been appointed Southland Cricket's executive officer. During his career he scored 3573 runs for the province at 27.06.

Hoskin will join coach Glenn Turner and Mike Hesson on the panel. Otago's chief executive Graeme Elliott said: "Richard had a lengthy first-class playing career which included three years as a player-selector. We are pleased that he has applied for the position.

On the list of duties for the selectors is the selection of the State Otago Volts, the Otago second XI and the Otago Development team.
