CWC not on Domingo's mind

Cape Town - New Proteas coach Russell Domingo says there's no point in him even thinking about the 2015 Cricket World Cup just yet.

According to the Cape Times, the "World Cup" question was thrown at Domingo after he was appointed as new head coach of the Proteas on Saturday. He will replace Gary Kirsten on August 1, after Kirsten surprisingly resigned on Friday, citing family reasons.

Domingo will remain as Kirsten's assistant for the ICC Champions Trophy tournament in England and Wales next month.

The new coach said a lot still has to happen before the next World Cup in 2015, therefore he is not thinking that far ahead at present.

"I'm not even considering a World Cup at the moment, but there are a lot of important and big matches before we're even close to considering that," said Domingo.

Domingo's first tour in charge will be Sri Lanka in August. South Africa also face Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates in November before a busy summer schedule where they will host India and Australia.

Cricket SA's president, Chris Nenzani, said Domingo's contract will likely stretch until after the 2015 World Cup in Australia and New Zealand.

"The details regarding his (Domingo's) contract will be discussed within the next week, but at this stage we are keen to keep him until at least after the World Cup in 2015," Nenzani told the Beeld website.
