Cape Town - Neil McKenzie will continue in his role as Proteas batting consultant for the next year.

McKenzie, 40, earlier this year joined the Proteas coaching staff on a short-term basis, with the Proteas at the time indicating that he would stay with the team until the completion of the ICC World Twenty20 in India.

But the former Highveld Lions batsman confirmed to SA Cricketmag that he will continue working with the Proteas for the next 12 months.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) is yet to formally announce the contract extension, but according to McKenzie the deal will be until April 2017, when head coach Russell Domingo’s contract expires.

After a first-class career of 21-years, McKenzie retired from professional cricket earlier this year.

He played 58 Tests, 64 ODIs and two T20Is for the Proteas.
