Cape Town - The news over the weekend that Proteas coach Russell Domingo will have to re-apply for his job at the end of July's Test series in England came as somewhat of a surprise. 

Domingo had been under-fire towards the beginning of 2016 following Test series defeats to India and England as well as a failed World T20 campaign, but the Proteas have experienced a revival over the past few months. 

Test series wins over New Zealand (home), Australia (away) and Sri Lanka (home) as well as a 5-0 ODI whitewash against Australia at home have set the Proteas back on the right path. 

But, it appears that Cricket South Africa (CSA) has made up its mind, and if Domingo wants to stay on as coach then he will have to get his CV in order and apply with the rest of them. 

It has not gone down well with Proteas spinner Dane Piedt, who took to Twitter on Monday to back Domingo. 

Piedt may not be in the Proteas mix at the moment, bit he clearly feels that Domingo should be allowed to continue as head coach. 

Piedt's tweet then drew a response from former Proteas batsman and current Cape Cobras coach Ashwell Prince, who agreed. 

Piedt has played in 7 Test matches for the Proteas since making his debut in 2014. He has 24 wickets to his name.
