Paul Adams, the former South Africa chinaman bowler, has decided against becoming a national selector and will instead pursue a career as a commentator.

Cricket South Africa chief executive Gerald Majola, Norman Arendse, the president, and former South Africa batsman Andrew Hudson will interview seven nominees, including former batsman Adam Bacher and allrounder Brian McMillan, for the new selection panel.

"The board has asked for three or four selectors and we will make our recommendation to the board within this month," Majola told Supercricket after the CSA annual meeting in Johannesburg. "In the meantime, I'll be convening the selection panel with the two remaining selectors, Shafiek Abrahams and Mustapha Khan, but there should be few issues - those two basically know the team they want."

The other nominees who will be interviewed include Luxolo Qoboshiyana, who is involved with cricket in the Border, Winky Ximiya, the convenor of selectors of the Highveld Lions in the recent past, Khan and Western Province's Saait Magiet.
