South Africa Appoints Former Captain as Director

South Africa has announced its decision to appoint former Proteas captain Graeme Smith as the new director of cricket until March 2020.

Cricket South Africa hopes for a glimpse of hope as they have decided to appoint former captain Graeme Smith as the director of cricket. CSA is optimistic that the new director will finally lead them out of the black tunnel into a new dawn.

After months of administrative management and poor leadership that led to a tough struggle, the nation’s cricketing affair is in a mess right now. SA’s cricket lovers are hoping to see better days with Smith at the helm.

Smith has been one of the Proteas’ long-serving captains who took up the role in his early twenties. He will be in for only three months for the team as he still has a prior job of doing commentary in the Indian Premier League 2020. 

‘Graeme is statistically the most successful Test captain in the history of the game. He is a natural leader and his knowledge of the game is second to none’, said Jacques Faul, CSA’s acting chief executive. ‘To have him on board to work with the professional cricket arm of CSA, as well as the cricketing pipeline, which is so vital for our game, is a massive shot in the arm for CSA during this period’.
