The Victorian Cricket Association (VCA) today announced that it would not be offering player contracts to Damien Fleming and Colin Miller for the 2002/03 season.
Additionally, four contracted players from the 2001/02 season were delisted. They are Shawn Craig, John Davison, Peter Harper and Peter Roach.
VCA Chief Executive Officer, Ken Jacobs said the decision was an extremely difficult one for the state selection panel. "The selectors have advised me of the difficulty of the decisions, however they believe they have acted in the best long-term interests of the Victorian Bushrangers cricket team".
Jacobs said that it was not necessarily the end of all the delisted players careers with the Bushrangers. "Obviously it is extremely disappointing for the players concerned. It is important to note that circumstances can and do change over the course of a season, therefore the opportunity is always there for players to remain in selection contention".
