Cricket South Africa (CSA) have appointed Lance Klusener as the assistant batting coach for the tour of India. The former all-rounder will be with the team for just the T20I leg of the tour and will be honing the power hitting skills of Proteas youngsters.
“Former Proteas all-rounder Lance Klusener will fill the role of assistant coach (batting) for the T20 Series only as he is currently not available for all formats,” said CSA's Acting Director of Cricket Corrie van Zyl.
Klusener, player of the tournament in the 1999 World Cup, has previously served as the head coach of the Dolphins franchise in South Africa’s domestic circuit and also had a stint with Zimbabwe as the batting coach. Klusener was in the roster of coaches for the Euro T20 Slam, which was eventually cancelled two weeks prior to commencement.
