Russell Domingo and Dr Mohammed Moosajee’s contracts have been extended until the end of the proteas tour to England next year, Cricket South Africa (CSA) announced.
This move comes after CSA revealed Lux Qoboshiyana as the new independent national selector.
Qoboshiyana replaces Ashwell Prince who resigned to pursue a coaching career.
Qoboshiyana joins Domingo, Errol Stewart, Hussein Manack on the selection panel.
Domingo and Moosajee’s contracts which were due to expire at the end of April next year have now been extended to include the ICC Champions Trophy tournament in June, three ODI’s and three T20i matches.
“As part of the domestic cricket review, we are currently evaluating the entire coaching framework in South Africa and the Board believed the best approach at present was to extend the tenure of Mr Domingo until the end of the England tour in 2017,” said CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat.
Lorgat said the performances of the Proteas was a key factor in the board’s unanimous decision.
“The recent 1-0 Sunfoil Test Series win against New Zealand and the impressive 5-0 win in the Momentum ODI Series against world champions Australia, resulting in us being the first nation to achieve a clean sweep against them, were noted.”
He added that Proteas discipline and the positive culture throughout the coaching team, the player leadership group and the rest of the players were viewed as exemplary.
“This decision is final and is not dependent on the National Team Review which is currently in progress.”
