Graeme Smith has officially been appointed as Director of Cricket by Cricket South Africa for an initial 2 year period until the end of March 2022.
Smith said he was delighted to stay on board as part of the team to take South African cricket forward.
“Graeme has been appointed to that position of director if cricket for two years and it will go on until March 31, 2022,” CSA acting chief executive Jacques Faul said in a tele-conference press briefing on Friday morning.
“I want to thank Graeme for his willingness to come on board and for the work he has done up to now.
“I am not sure if there is anybody whose career can start with so many challenges. He has been instrumental in appointing coaches in this difficult time.”
Faul said CSA are working on how to respond to the shutdown of all sports as a result of the outbreak of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic in South Africa.
“Our strategy is based on four pillars. The first and the most important is safety and acting responsibly,” he said.
