Jacques Kallis has been named as South Africa’s batting consultant – a position he will hold over the course of the international summer for the Proteas. Kallis, one of the greatest all-rounders to ever play the game, has been roped in alongside Charl Langeveldt who will serve as the team’s bowling consultant.
Kallis scored 25,534 runs and picked 577 wickets in an illustrious career for South Africa spanning almost two decades. He is the latest former player in South Africa’s new set up, after the appointment of Mark Boucher as head coach and former captain Graeme Smith having assumed the responsibilities as acting director of cricket.
The 44-year-old will be part of South Africa’s new coaching regime for the England tour of the rainbow nation. Following the four Tests, three ODIs and three T20Is against the England side, South Africa will take on Australia in a limited-overs series.
