Graeme Smith Appointed Acting Director For Cricket SA

In a stunning return to the national cricket scene, former Proteas skipper Graeme Smith has signed a three-month contract with CSA to become the cricket governing body’s acting director of cricket.

Smith, who has been lauded as statistically being the most successful Test captain in the history of the game, will be assisting CSA until the 2020 edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) which is scheduled to begin in March.

According to a statement by CSA, Smith said: “I’ve publicly stated a number of times that I would love to assist CSA in this difficult time, particularly in developing this new role of director of cricket.

“I’m still as passionate about South African cricket as I ever was and I’m looking forward to getting stuck into the role. There is a lot of work to be done in the next few weeks and months and my objective will always be to make a positive impact during my tenure.”

Smith’s appointment comes as a welcome shot in the arm for the embattled body hamstrung by a governance crisis of late. CSA chief executive Thabang Moroe has been suspended last Friday with Titans boss Jacques Faul named acting CEO.
