Mike Procter has stood down as an ICC match referee to take up his new role as Cricket South Africa's (CSA) convener of selectors.

Procter, who officiated in 47 Tests, 154 ODIs and 15 Twenty20 internationals since becoming a match referee in 2002, will take up his new job on December 1 after completing his obligations with the ICC. His last two series will be between Pakistan and West Indies in Abu Dhabi, followed by Zimbabwe and Sri Lanka.

"Speaking from personal experience I know that his new role as CSA's convenor of selectors will be a challenging and rewarding one," said ICC's chief executive, Haroon Lorgat. "However, I also know that Mike will bring to it all the cricket wisdom he has acquired over more than 40 years of top-level involvement.

"His starting date with CSA, arrived at after negotiations between us at the ICC and CSA chief executive Gerald Majola ahead of CSA's announcement, allows Mike to complete his obligations as a match referee before assuming his new role.

"This is important because it sets a definitive mark between the end of one job and the start of another and, in terms of Mike's position as a match referee, it ensures the continued integrity and independence of that role."
