Durban – Cricket South Africa has begun interviewing potential candidates for probably the most important cricket position in South Africa, the national coach.
The panel will make their recommendations to the CSA boards and a decision will be announced in the coming weeks.
But CSA South Africa has been tight lipped about its list of potential candidates, saying strong applications had been received from South Africa and abroad.
The candidates in addition to extensive tests will have had to undergo psychometric testing.
