Kumble to coach SA spinners
Johannesburg - Some of South Africa’s leading and up and coming spin bowlers will get a rare opportunity to spend quality time in the company of former Indian leg spinner, Anil Kumble, who will be in the country next week to take part in a coaching clinic in Johannesburg on Thursday.
Kumble will be joined by Proteas stars and fellow spinners, Paul Harris and Johan Botha, as a host of franchise and up and coming spinners receive first hand coaching from one of the best bowlers of all time.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) CEO Gerald Majola said: “Anil Kumble is a living legend, and CSA is honoured that he has accepted our invitation to come out to South Africa and work with tomorrow’s stars. We will also invite some of our women cricketers, young batsmen and wicket keepers, who we believe, will benefit from the experience.
“CSA is encouraged by the progress made by our High Performance team, and we are confident that this visit is going to boost the good work being done in the spinning department.” The spinning clinic, which will also be attended by CSA’s High Performance spinning coaches, Shafiek Abrahams, Harry Shapiro and Paul Adams, will run alongside the second CSA Annual Conference, which will take place from August 18-21 in Sandton.
The CSA Annual Conference brings together the entire cricket family, whose task this year is to map the way forward for the next four years.
The Conference will also include the 2010/11 Season Launch on Friday, August 20, and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Saturday, August 21.
