After World Cup debacle, no extension for Proteas coach

Aug 04, 2019 20:08 IST

Announcing changes to its coaching structure after the Proteas' disappointing World Cup campaign, Cricket South Africa has said that it will not be renewing coach Otis Gibson's contract which is set to expire in September. Under the new system, a football-style team manager will be in-charge of all aspects of the team including appointment of coaching and support staff. The restructuring will also see the appointment of a director of cricket. Kevin Pietersen, the South Africa-born former England cricketer has backed former South African player Mark Boucher to turn things around for the team.
