Johannesburg - The Proteas’ Management team has  rounded off the CSA coaching conference on Thursday with an overview of the national team vision and strategy for the next few years.

The presentation, led by head coach Russell Domingo, was an opportunity to create synergy and a collective vision between the national set-up and the lower structures.

"The coaches attending the workshop are big role players for cricket in South Africa," said Domingo, explaining the importance of information sharing.

"They develop the players who will one day represent South Africa, so it was important for us (management) to share our strategy and vision to make sure we are on the same wavelength.

"It was great to create constructive debate amongst the delegates and to get an understanding of the thinking of some of the top coaches in the country.

"If our domestic coaches have a better understanding of our expectations and requirements at national level, that can only bode well for the quality of players we have coming through."

In addition, Domingo also touched on the current 'healthy' state of the Proteas Test squad and ways to maintain the No 1 ranking; the ODI squad and the expectations looking ahead to the 2015 World Cup, as well as the Blue Label T20 squad, which will be vying for an ICC World Twenty20 trophy in seven months’ time.

Proteas assistant coach, Adrian Birrell, addressed the delegates on the importance of leadership and the essential requirements of creating an enabling environment.

This followed an informative talk on Monday from Proteas’ bowling coach, Allan Donald, who gave input into harnessing skilled and equipped fast bowlers for the Test arena.
