Default Jacques Rudolph quits South Africa and Joins Yorkshire

South Africa test batsman Jacques Rudolph msigned a three year contract with Yorkshire under Kolpak ruling and quits South Africa for that period of time. It will probably end his International Career with South Africa and he might play as yet another foreigner in England team.

English cricket officials said on Friday they had "reluctantly agreed" to Yorkshire's registration of Jacques Rudolph after the South African test batsman joined as a non-foreigner under the Kolpak ruling.

Rudolph, 25, who has played 35 tests and was included in South Africa's provisional World Cup squad, signed a three-year deal with the English county in January even though they already had their allotted two overseas players - Pakistan batsman Younus Khan and Australian pace bowler Jason Gillespie.

The Kolpak ruling is named after Maros Kolpak, a Slovakian handball player, who claimed restraint of trade and won a European court ruling that allowed him to play in Germany.

That ruling is now being applied across all sports and means Rudolph can join Yorkshire without being counted as an overseas player after pledging not to play for his country during that period.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) approved the signing but said it would continue to work against similar moves which it believes harms the domestic game.

"The ECB have reluctantly agreed to the registration of Jacques Rudolph by Yorkshire, having considered all relevant factors and taken account of the legal implications of the Kolpak decision," the organisation said in a statement.
This is unacceptable.

Actually, Smith's captaincy has ruined the internation career of at least two guys: Klusener and Rudolph. If I can recall correctly, Smith used to play under Rudolph's captaincy at the age level.

He had very little chance of making the national side. So he chose to play for the county. Afterall he is a professional. What's wrong with that?

Let me add something more here: In the last Australia tour he scored a century preventing the Aussies from a certain victory. In the tour before that tour he has been performing very well but was denied in the test team. The SA selectors chosed another non white player ahead of him overlooking Rudolph's batting skill. They had to do it for the quota system.

Now the question is if SA looses it's every taleneted players then they will never be able to dominate the cricket world like the Aussies. Remember Kevin Petersen, they lost him because they didn't give him enough chance. This quota system is ruining the South African cricket. Can't believe this Rudolph scored a double ton against us in 2002.

why would this be unacceptable? he can do whatever he wants. it's his life and his decision

now had this been a bangladeshi cricketer, mone onek koshto paitam, but we'd still have to let him go as it would've been a personal choice.

Rudolph is a good batsman who would certainly have regained his place in the South African side.

And yes, it's his personal choice but when a cricketer forfeits the chance to represent his country at the highest level for extra cash, you have to at least question his character.

Yes indeed, the quota system is ruining SA cricket. Maybe the whole SA nation should move to Europe and play cricket for either the dutch or English teams. Then the real South Africans can represent their country.

That will have no impact on us though, as we will have a strong Dutch test team, but a very weak SA test team.

Kinda like Pakistan in the old days...don't let the Bengalis play, not even with a quota. Who knows how weak the "desired" Pakistani team would then become. Yup, I hate quotas too.

This is quite old news. Rudolph did this action with the approval of the SA board. Once he gets his form back he can go back to play for SA at anytime, the situation is unclear, but many south afircans know the situation and he will be back playing for SA sooner or later

SA -> Professional Squad, Rudolph leaving makes no impact on the team or the fans whatsoever...

BD -> Passionate Squad, someone leaving directly impacts the team & the fans....

Rudolph knows that he might not get another chance to play in the South African team because of the quota system. Thats why he is moving to England. He is a professional cricketer and he needs to play to earn. He loves this game and thats why he wants to play at the highest level. If he stays in SA then he won't be able to play at the highest level. Now clear?

Its his life, his career, his money, his personal choice.
A lot goes behind the scene that we have no clue about.

No point commenting on this issue.

You can't say that Smith is responsible for that. He is not a selector.

But I personally can't support what he done. He is still young and able to back to the team. My point of view a wrong decission.
