People on the Move: Cricket South Africa

Cricket South Africa has unveiled its new high-performance management team, which will work in alignment with the Proteas men’s and women’s coaching staff:

  • CSA Acting Head of Cricket Pathways: Edward Khoza
  • South Africa A & National Academy Lead: Malibongwe Maketa
  • SA Under-19 Men’s Lead: Shukri Conrad
  • High-Performance Manager and Bowling Lead: Vincent Barnes
  • High-Performance Batting Lead: Neil McKenzie
  • SA Under-19 Women’s & Women’s National Academy Head Coach: Dinesha Devnarain
  • Chief Medical Officer: Dr Shuaib Manjra

“The goal is to make sure that South African cricket is strong,” says CSA Director of Cricket, Graeme Smith. “We’ve got a really powerful group of cricketers coming through that can only strengthen the national side and can challenge players in the national team. We’re quite privileged to be announcing top-quality coaches in our environment under our revised High-Performance structure (Maketa, Conrad, McKenzie and Devnarain). These guys will be leading the process in terms of ensuring that CSA reaches its objective of making sure that we can close the gap between international cricket and the domestic game. They will be mainly focusing on working with the best 48 players in the country in support of the franchise coaches to ensure that these identified players are prepared well and that they are ready for international cricket.”
