Johannesburg: The United Cricket Board of South Africa (UCBSA) will decide on Friday whether Daryll Cullinan will play for South Africa again after his contract with English county side Kent suddenly ended over the weekend following a nagging knee injury.Cullinan was not offered a new contract by the UCBSA when it re-engaged most members of its team last month because of his contract with Kent. Now, his contract with Kent has also been cancelled by mutual consent after he was out of most recent matches because of the knee injury, which reportedly requires a long period of rest.Cullinan is hopeful that the winter rest period in South Africa will allow the injury to heal and that he will be fit when the South Africans resume their season in September with two Tests against Zimbabwe.Cullinan said he was very disappointed. "It is the first time in my career that I have suffered an injury of this seriousness, but I do feel that rest is the only solution," he told the Johannesburg daily Star."This is clearly a disappointing outcome to what had promised to be a mostfruitful relationship," Kent's chief executive Paul Millman said."We very much respect the commitment that Daryll has shown to Kent and also the manner in which he has conducted discussions at this difficult time. We will now be looking for a replacement to take the field as soon as possible while discussing with Daryll his offer to help in any way that he can," Millman added.IANS
