Cape Town - Ray Jennings has been informed by Cricket South Africa (CSA) that his contract as SA Under-19 coach has not been renewed.

This comes despite Jennings leading the the South African Under-19 side to their first ever World Cup title earlier this year.

Jennings, whose contract ends at the end of April, re-applied for the post but according to EWN Sport he was told on Wednesday that he didn't get the job.

CSA CEO Haroon Lorgat earlier said the coaching role would be restructured.

"We've decided to split the role between the coach that will specifically focus on development from the Under-13 black African programme ... Then we are going to ... appoint a second person to deal with the academy programmes," Lorgat told SAPA in March.

"The focus will be on players coming from semi-pro, moving into the franchise level and all the way up to the Proteas."

South Africa won the Under-19 World Cup last month when they beat Pakistan in the final in Dubai.
