JOHANNESBURG – Cricket SA congratulated its senior umpire, Marais Erasmus, on his appointment as one of the on-field match officials for the final of the Cricket World Cup at Lord’s in London on Sunday.
Hosts England will take on New Zealand in the title-decider.
“This is another feather in the cap of Marais’ extremely distinguished career,” said CSA Chief Executive Thabang Moroe.
“The CSA family is extremely proud of him. He has been an outstanding ambassador of the CSA brand throughout the nine years he has served on the ICC Elite Panel of umpires.
“The respect he enjoys from players, fellow umpires and administrators is reflected in his achievement of being awarded the David Shepherd Trophy for the ICC Umpire of the Year both in 2016 and 2017 and by the fact that he has been a match official on a regular basis in major ICC Finals since the 2015 ICC World Cup Final when he was the television match official.
