Dolphins coach Grant Morgan believes he can lead his side to success by the time his contract ends in 2019-20.
The Dolphins had a relatively successful campaign last season after they shared the One Day Cup title and made the Ram Slam T20 Challenge final.
Morgan and his assistant coach Imraan Khan, have received contract extensions until the end of the 2019-20 season.
Morgan is excited about the prospect of taking his team to the next level and was confident in his ability to turn the Dolphins into a dominant side.
‘My track record suggests that given time I can succeed,’ the coach was quoted as saying on Sport 24.
‘At every place that I have coached, I always try and connect with the people there and get the best results from them, not only for the team and the union, but for the people. So, when the offer came up to continue what I am doing here, I was quick to take it.
‘The blueprint to success is there and although we have been good, we still have massive room for improvement. We have seen through the success of KZN Inland, and now the coastal side coming to the party this season, we are on the right track.
‘Creating a winning culture at the bottom will filter through the ranks and the Africa T20 Cup and Three Day Cup success pushes the players in the Dolphins set up.’
Morgan’s assistant coach Khan took up the assistant role straight after retirement and is looking forward to more time under Morgan.
‘I think Morgs and I have worked well together,’ Khan added. ‘It helped that we had a bit of experience working together beforehand in the KZN Inland set up.
‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Morgs and we have been relatively successful so far, but the challenge is to replicate and improve on what has happened in the past.’
