Johannesburg - CSA have announced the appointment of Shukri Conrad as national academy head coach and Lawrence Mahatlane as national under-19 team head coach.

"I would like to congratulate both individuals on their respective appointments and wish them well as we re-organise ourselves for greater success in future," commented CSA chief executive, Haroon Lorgat.

"I would also like to thank Ray Jennings for his fantastic service as our under-19 head coach over the past nine years.
"Change is inevitable and these new appointments follow the restructuring put forward through the Cricket Pipeline Committee and approved by the Board in February."

"The under-19 head coach will focus on the management of the Talent Acceleration Programme (TAP) and the coaching of the under-19 national team. As such he will attend all regional and national camps and weeks that form part of the TAP," explained Corrie van Zyl, CSA general manager of cricket.

"The National Academy Head Coach will focus on the National Academy programme during the off-season period from May to September and manage the standardisation process of the provincial academies.

"During the in-season period he will act as the Head of scouts and master coaches in the semi-professional structure and monitor existing national academy candidates in semi-professional cricket and identify new candidates for the national academy."
