Conrad to coach SA A on England tour



Shuki Conrad has been appointed as head coach of the South Africa ‘A’ side for their upcoming tour of England in May and June next year as well as the annual tri-series against India ‘A’ and Australia ‘A’ which will be hosted in South Africa after the England tour.

The SA ‘A’ team will play three 50 overs matches against the England Lions as well as a four-day unofficial test match. In addition to the tri-series South Africa ‘A’ will play four-day unofficial test matches against both their opponents.

“We have reviewed the needs of our national coaching structures and decided to make a longer term head coach appointment for the South Africa ‘A’ squad,” commented CSA Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat.

“With greater emphasis on planning and developing our next best players, the appointment will be effective immediately.

“As Shukri’s responsibilities with the ‘A’ team will clash with the CSA Academy Winter Programme, an interim coach will be appointed in due course to replace Shukri as the CSA Academy Head Coach,” concluded Lorgat.
