JP Duminy and Justin Sammons will be specialist consultants to the Proteas team management for next month’s T20 World Cup.
The pair will fill the vacancy on a temporary basis caused by the resignation of assistant coach Enoch Nkwe.
“I would like to thank the Lions and the North West Dragons for making JP and Justin available to us where they are currently employed as the respective batting coaches,” said CSA director of cricket Graeme Smith.
“Justin previously worked with the Proteas during the first part of our current tour of Sri Lanka so he has already developed a good working relationship with the players.
“JP is a perfect fit for T20 cricket. His record as a player speaks for itself and he will bring specific skills in all three disciplines of batting, bowling and fielding.”
