Donald quits international scene, to play domestic game
Johannesburg: Former South Africa Test player Pat Symcox on Saturday resigned as a national team selector, the United Cricket Board of South Africa (UCBSA) announced. In a letter to the UCBSA, Symcox said his decision was made due to a conflict of interests between his position as a selector and his position as a TV commentator and journalist. "Symmo has played a huge role on the selection panel and he still has a lot to contribute and give to South African cricket. I will miss him," said Omar Henry, the national selection convenor. Symcox's resignation came just a few hours after fast bowler Allan Donald decided to quit international cricket following South Africa's failure to qualify for the Super Sixes of the World Cup.
