Cricket South Africa (CSA) has appointed former captain Graeme Smith as its Director of Cricket. He will initially serve a two-year term until the end of March 2022. Smith had initially served in the same role in an interim capacity but has now been roped in for a full-time job.
“Graeme has made a huge impact with his energy, expertise, hard work ethic and characteristic determination and passion he has brought to the position during the six months he has served in an acting capacity,” commented CSA Acting Chief Executive Dr. Jacques Faul.
“My appointment brings a degree of permanency to my position which makes planning the road ahead a lot easier,” Smith said following his appointment. He faces a lot of challenges in this job given South Africa cricket’s struggles of late.
