Johannesburg, May 18 (CRICKETNMORE) Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Thursday nominated a five-member panel, including two former national coaches Gary Kirsten and Eric Simons, to recommend a suitable candidate for the position of Proteas head coach, which it aims to fill by the beginning of September.
Incumbent Russell Domingo, who has been in charge since after the Champions Trophy in mid-2013 has had his contract renewed three times and his current contract expires at the end of the England tour in August.
Besides, Kirsten and Simons the other members of the screening committee include CSA's lead independent director Norman Arendse, board member Rihan Richards, transformation and cricket pipeline committee member Oupa Nkagisang.
CSA also reposed faith in the current crop of selectors, whose tenure began after the 2015 World Cup to continue until the end of the ICC World Cup in 2019.
The only other notable change to the structure is the appointment of Robin Peterson as the eminent past-player representative on the cricket committee. Peterson replaces Ashwell Prince, who took over as the head coach of the Cape Cobras.
