"This is devastating news for all of us. <p></p> <p></p>"Elriesa did so much for the community in which she lived and gave excellent service both as a national player and in the work she did at grassroots level. <p></p> <p></p>"On behalf of the CSA family, I extend our deepest sympathy to her husband, her family, friends and all her cricketing colleagues."
