Johannesburg: South African batsman Daryll Cullinan made a public apology Monday over his refusal to play against Australia in March this year.
Cullinan withdrew from the side to play Australia on the eve of the second Test at Newlands on March 5 over a contractual dispute with the UCBSA.
“I regret the circumstances and I could have handled the situation better,” Cullinan said in Johannesburg. “I’d like to apologise to the team, cricket supporters and the United Cricket Board for bringing the game into disrepute and I’d like to reconfirm my commitment to the game.”
Adams under scanner
Durban: South African spinner Paul Adams was the latest to come under the scanner of ICC’s Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) for using the cell phone in the players’ lounge.
The ACU’s SA unit policeman, Arrie De Beer noticed Adams chatting on the phone in the players’ lounge. He apparently approached the team manager, Goolam Rajah, who got the message across to Adams, who then cut off the call to Henry.
