Former Proteas Women player Shantre Fritz is appointed to the Match Referees Panel and Lauren Agenbag is included to the Reserve List Umpires Panel. Speaking to sport24, CSA’s Acting Director of Cricket said, “Congratulations to all our umpires on their deserved appointments for the approaching season and particularly to Lauren and Shandre.”
“Lauren has already umpired at Women’s Senior International level in T20 matches and we have identified her as one of the exciting prospects to come through our Talent Identification Programme (TAP),” he added.
