Johannesburg: Cricket South Africa’s national convenor of selectors, Andrew Hudson, has refused to divulge any details on reports that race prescription were laid down for the composition of the AB de Villiers-led team during the just concluded ICC Cricket World Cup 2015. De Villiers had considered pulling out from semi-final over racial quotas

Earlier, CSA chief executive Lorgat had slammed reports that claimed he had sent coach Russell Domingo, an SMS informing the latter to choose a player of colour for the high-octane semifinal clash against New Zealand in Auckland. According to reports, Lorgat informed Domingo to select between dropping Rilee Rossouw and picking Farhaan Behardien, or dropping Kyle Abbott for Vernon Philander.
