Bangladesh bowling coach Charl Langeveldt has resigned – and is on the brink of accepting a job offer from Cricket South Africa.
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.
‘Langeveldt said he has an offer to work in South Africa’s senior side, which is why he requested the Bangladesh Cricket Board to let him go,’ cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan told Bangladeshi newspaper Prothom Alo. ‘We have decided to release him.’
Langeveldt will work alongside new Proteas head coach Mark Boucher and acting director of cricket Graeme Smith. Former all-rounder Jacques Kallis will likely be employed as a batting consultant.
‘I will be appointing batting and bowling consultants and these will be announced in the next couple of days,’ said Smith last week.
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.
