• Domingo will pick Donald’s successor

    South Africa coach Russell Domingo will decide on a new bowling coach for the national team after Allan Donald decided to move on.

    Donald announced earlier in the week that he was ‘moving on’ from the job as bowling coach that he filled since 2011 when Gary Kirsten became coach.

    The contracts of Donald and the rest of the coaching staff are due to expire at the end of April. Domingo’s contract was extended by another year to 2016 before the World Cup.

    Domingo will now have the chance to pick his own coaching staff, since he inherited most of them when Kirsten decided not to renew his contract in 2013.

    Cricket South Africa confirmed this process, reports Netwerk24.

    The candidates that Domingo wants to get involved will have to be presented to CSA’s manager Corrie van Zyl and the CEO Haroon Lorgat for approval.

    Domingo reportedly has an idea of who he wants, but he still has some time to make a final decision before a board meeting on 2 June.

    Charl Langeveldt and Claude Henderson accompanied South Africa to the World Cup as bowling consultants, with Langeveldt being considered one of the favourites to replace Donald as bowling coach, although this is not a given.

    Adrian Birrell is the incumbent assistant-coach.
