2011-12-13 15:33

Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Tuesday announced the appointment of Corrie van Zyl as the new general manager.

“Corrie has a distinguished record as player, coach and administrator and he will do an excellent job in taking the game forward as we pursue our vision of making cricket accessible to all and making South Africa a nation of winners,” commented CSA CEO Gerald Majola.

“He will take charge of the entire development pipeline from grassroots right up to the Proteas and both he and national head coach Gary Kirsten will report directly to me in terms of our cricket structures.

“Vinnie Barnes will take charge as head coach of the High Performance Centre and the youth cricket manager Niels Momberg, senior cricket manager Max Jordaan and coaching education manager Anton Ferreira will report directly to Corrie.”

Van Zyl said he was delighted to take up his new post. “When I decided to stand down as national cricket coach I felt I could still make a contribution to the well-being of South African cricket over a period of time and I am very excited about this new challenge.

“Our cricket is flourishing at all levels at the moment and I believe we are entering an exciting period in our young history.”

      ...agreed.....he has brought the game into disrepute...guilty or not guilty ...he has to go....the sooner the better....yet the Cricket Unions are still sitting on the fence....they must also be held accountable

      No man have a heart,suggest only customise him and change his name (of sob and shame) to Greed (or Gerard) LAbola.then he can go on lining all his other the rest of the "elite" in this country, where theft is the national sport in any case(not that LAbola stole anything he just that the spoils he did NOT steal not be known, lest he get less out of his bosses as "bonus".So he was dishonest (not that he still is, no THAT is history). No circus can go on without clowns and as they say ;THE SHOW.MUSST go ON otherwise the spectators may get bored;remember the spectators PAY either tax or gate money or the TV networks are.The LAbolas add value.don't they??? ex Africa semper aliquid novi.(New thieves are born everyday but it takes time to train them, not to get caught too soon) and, if they get caught, to get the tears rolling to the right tune, THAT will take MUCH too long to teach, (too much money will be left "unstolen")Money not stolen in time is like water under the bridge..Some of us South Africans are so cruel,and unthankful.I mean LAbola even cut a real icon downer than size,look at that Ali he must have stolen all his runs when the refs didn't look,he just mimicked,was no batsmen, no captain to THE GREATS, and he. HE NEVER created any infrastructures,well he did nothing for transformation; it seems he came from the bush; total fool who brought all after him in disgrace, HE DECLARED his bonus...(which he deserved by the way) the idiot.......

    I am sure Corrie will do a good job but until the current top cricket administrators are replaced the whole structure is suspect. I hope he is not taking on a poison chalice.
