Cape Town - Russell Domingo's contract as coach of the Proteas has been extended until the end of South Africa's tour to England next year.
Team manager, Dr Mohammed Moosajee, has also had his contract extended.
Their extended tenures will now include the ICC Champions
Trophy tournament in England in June 2017 as well as the full bilateral tour to
England comprising the four-match Basil d’Oliveira Trophy Test Series, three
ODI’s and three T20 International matches.
Domingo and Moosajee’s contracts were due to expire at the
end of April 2017.
"As part of the domestic cricket review, we are currently
evaluating the entire coaching framework in South Africa and the Board believed
the best approach at present was to extend the tenure of Mr Domingo until the
end of the England tour in 2017," commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat, via an official CSA statement.
"Naturally the performances of the Proteas was a key factor
in the Board’s unanimous decision. The recent 1-0 Sunfoil Test Series win
against New Zealand and the impressive 5-0 win in the Momentum ODI Series
against world champions Australia, resulting in us being the first nation to
achieve a clean sweep against them, were noted.
"In addition, the excellent Proteas discipline and the
positive culture throughout the coaching team, the player leadership group and
the rest of the players were viewed as exemplary.
"This decision is final and is not dependent on the National
Team Review which is currently in progress," concluded Lorgat.
