Former seamer Charl Langeveldt has been named as the Proteas’ bowling consultant.
Langeveldt, who played six Tests, 72 ODIs and nine T20Is between 2001 and 2010, previously worked with the Proteas as a bowling coach. He joined former Proteas head coach Russell Domingo at Bangladesh earlier this year.
‘I would like to thank the Bangladesh Cricket Board and their chief executive officer Nizam Uddin Chowdhury for their understanding in releasing Charl from his contract and allowing him to return home to take up the position of bowling consultant with the Proteas,’ said CSA acting chief executive Jacques Faul.
Langeveldt will work alongside new Proteas head coach Mark Boucher and acting director of cricket Graeme Smith. Former all-rounder Jacques Kallis, too, has been employed as a batting consultant.
The Proteas will soon host England for four Tests. The series opener will start at SuperSport Park in Centurion on 26 December. Newlands in Cape Town, St George’s Park in Port Elizabeth and the Wanderers in Johannesburg will host the second, third and fourth match, respectively.
The squad for the first half of the series includes six uncapped players – all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius, batsmen Rassie van der Dussen and Pieter Malan, seamers Beuran Hendricks and Dane Paterson and wicketkeeper Rudi Second.
