Default The Bigger Picture - Mike Proctor

The man speaks about his days as a player and later as an ICC official and a South African selector. Another cricketer who has no regret losing a career over what needed to be done to save the lives of millions.

Quote:
Once described as man who bowled "at 100mph from mid-off off the wrong foot" Mike Procter's international career was limited to just seven Tests due to South Africa's exclusion from world cricket during the apartheid years. Instead he plied his trade for Gloucestershire and in the Currie Cup, before forging a high-profile career as a match referee, selector and broadcaster. He tells ESPNcricinfo about his career.

IMO, given his stance against racism even as a cricketer during the apartheid era, the allegations of racism against him over the Harbhajan/Symonds incident are quite stupid. Heck, Symonds isn't even white.

PS: He mentions the BPL briefly and positively in the interview.
