The Proteas results should be based upon performances in the iCC tournaments & Domimgo has had more than enough chances to at least get us to a final. It's easy to paint him as a hero after a 5-0 against the Aussies but it wouldn't surprise me if the reverse happens down under. Previous SA coaches were booted out for far less.

To be honest. I think it's the captaincy change, I think faf is much better at getting more out of his players. Ab is the best player in the world. But u never make your best player captain. Look at hansie, waugh,

Ai its weird how some coaches just can continue on and on he should have been fired long ago since SA has slipped from number1 to ,number 7 in the test ranking how is that the best for SA God forbid if this was a black coach or one coloured he would have been gone in the blink of an eye. But ja lets see now what happens SA should not get big headed cause their historic win against SA recently was done against a second string team playing OZ in OZ with the best they have gonna be a great challenge.

That ranking slip has as much to do with crappy tour schedule as well as the teams form. When last have SA played a proper test series...even Bangladesh and the Windies play more

Ja ja ja we can blame everything but the coach. Pointless arguing about schedules and form when the selectors have to be forced to choose players of color even when they in form. But select white players that is injured. But anyway I hope they do well the decision is made and its done, I wonder what they gonna do when SA is doing really well by the time his contract is done completely. Wonder what excuse gonna come up then to extend his contract.

As long as he doesn't win a world cup, his job is secured. Sorry for your job lost, Ray Jennings

I am sure that they have earmarked a black coach to take over from Domingo in late 2017.

To be honest, I can't say, as I don't even know who all the coaches are.

The only candidate I can think about is Geoff Toyana

Let us see what you have to say after the test series. There is no excuse for being number 7 in the rankings except for the Minister of Sport, the management of the team and the selectors.

...the right time was a while ago, but that time has gone, now it's time to build an consolidate. Losing the coach now will be to much of a distraction. Domingo is a good limited over coach, he might need some proving when it comes to tests still. Prove me wrong Domingo!!!...

Great comment, " the right time...time has gone." To be fair there have been other factors in the slight diP of the test team. As long as we are ticking the boxes for our country's unique situation and winning whilst doing that, all's good.

...agreed...also why I stated "prove me wrong". We already won the test series against NZ. The Australians, Sri Lanka's, New Zealanders(again) and then England await for test series. We have a full strength squad (bar AB) so hear is hoping for a good competitive test season. All the ingredients are there for Domingo and co. ...

...I don't like the qouta/target system, whatever they are calling it now, but...something is working working in our cricket (not perfect though). Youngsters are coming through and if I were to select the next coach, I don't think many people will have a problem with Toyana (has a few proteas made during his rain) as the next Proteas coach...

...look, I'm not gonna completely agree with you there, I'm not gonna mention everyone, but Bavuma for example was consistently performing (top 10 in first class competition for run scores for a few years and so on.....) I just don't like labeling a guy. But enough of this now. ... ...we should start developing and building (the young talent pool is there) so that when the time comes the replacement is already experienced and prepared (like you said)...

To be honest if i look at the players who played under domingo thn i mst say he failed as a coach bt i dnt see any1 else better thn him at the moment unless we go overseas

I just hope they kept in mind what went on before the nz & aus tour here in SA. We were dead in the water. And that happened under his watch.

Till end of next year is not that long away. I reasonably happy with the extension. There is no one else really knocking the door down and Proteas are playing good cricket.

I think if they didn't renew is contract we would have definitely had our 1st black coach . . .they are probably still looking for guys to replace him

Wesley Cameron

I still feel this decision to renew could have waited after the OZ Test series is concluded..There was meant to be a report as to why SA did so badly not so long ago but that was shelved ..what is the rush for this decision now..This new contract guarantees Domingo is there after the OZ tour even if we lose badly , it guarantees he is still there after the Champions Trophy which could potentially be the last tournament to win for some of the older players ,and then he also gets to see out England in Eng with our Test team also on the brink of change ..

A lot of key players was not inform. And it was bating and bowling together.
