Proteas fitness and conditioning coach Rob Walter, is not travelling with the T20 squad in Zimbabwe, with the team management focusing on spreading resources which will make sure all the players within the setup are in shape.

Proteas team manager, Mohammed Moosajee said: “Even though we have an important T20 series on, we also felt the need to give the remaining Test players back home the necessary preparation and conditioning ahead of our departure to the United Kingdom.

Most of the players will have recovered from their IPL and county stints and this gives us the platform to maintain and to equip them with the necessary physical and cricket specific conditioning ahead of the season.
 
“Spreading our coaching resources also moves in line with the culture and coaching methodology that Gary (Kirsten) has brought into the Proteas set-up, which in essence makes sure that all avenues within the squad receive the necessary focus.”
 
Walter will be working closely with the bowlers, who are often the most sensitive when it comes to physical preparedness and conditioning.
 
“Being both physically and technically prepared for the start of the UK tour and the entire season ahead is paramount,” Walter said. 

“The international calendar is quite busy as it is, so it is vital to use these small conditioning windows to our advantage and hopefully that will stand us in good stead at the back end of the season.”
