Omar Henry has been replaced as convenor of selectors by the South African cricket board, but will remain on the selection committee. The move was an unexpected one, but Henry stated that he had had no intention of holding the post for a long time.
Curiously, Henry said to The Sunday Times, "I'm now 52 and I've got a fair appreciation of cricket politics. If I was 20 years younger, I might have reacted differently." There were reports that Haroon Lorgat, currently a treasurer, would replace Henry as convenor, but would only have a vote if the four selectors were unable to decide on a player.
Gerald Majola, the head of the South African board, expressed faith in Lorgat's abilities. "Our major concern has been the effective management of the selection process. We believe Haroon will do a very good job." Henry, Ray Jennings, Enver Mall and Joubert Strydom make up the selection panel.
