After England tour Cricket South Africa to recruit new coach

From the source : Russell Domingo will have to reapply for his position of South Africa coach if he wants to continue after the England tour in May-August 2017. Cricket South Africa (CSA) have confirmed they will begin a recruitment process to appoint a head coach after the England tour and through to the 2019 World Cup.

“The Board of Directors also resolved to commence the recruitment process for the appointment of the Proteas Head Coach to take charge after the tour to the UK until after the 2019 edition of the ICC World Cup,” CSA said at the end of a release about a review into domestic cricket.

Russell Domingo, who took over in May 2013, has twice had his contract extended. It was originally set to run until the 2015 World Cup, before CSA took a unanimous decision to extend it till April 2016. Then, last October, it was decided to extend it till the end of the England tour.

South Africa have bounced back, winning Test series against New Zealand and Sri Lanka at home either side of beating Australia 5-0 in a home ODI series and 2-1 in an away Test series.

In a press conference at the end of the Sri Lanka Tests, Domingo had outlined his vision of how he would like South Africa to play under him, but refused to look too far beyond his current contract.

“I could go tomorrow,” he had said. “Nothing is certain. I by no means look too far ahead in my coaching career. I take it one series at a time. You never know what’s around the corner in coaching. I’ve always felt that the support that I’ve got from the players is the most important thing. If you’ve still got the support of the players, that’s all that matters. I’ve always felt I had that. It’s out of my control, what happens happens.”
