Cape Town - Proteas coach Russell Domingo has had to fly back to South Africa urgently after receiving news that his mother has been critically injured in a car accident. 

Cricket South Africa (CSA) confirmed the news on Friday, saying that Domingo's mother had been travelling alone in Port Elizabeth when the accident happened. 

Domingo has been in England with the Proteas throughout the ICC Champions Trophy and was preparing for Friday's second T20I against England in Taunton.

The third and final T20 is on Sunday before attention turns to the four-match Test series against England, which gets underway at Lord's on July 6. 

Domingo's future beyond the completion of that series is in doubt after CSA informed him earlier this year that should he wish to stay on as coach, he would have to re-apply for his job. 

At this stage, it is not clear whether or not he has done so.
