Langeveldt handed coaching chance

January 07, 2015 13:17:12 UK

South Africa have recruited former fast bowler Charl Langeveldt to mentor their attack for the upcoming one-day and Twenty20 assignments against West Indies.

Since retiring at the end of the 2013-14 domestic season, the 40-year-old has fulfilled the same role with the Cape Cobras, for whom he even featured at last September’s Champions League.

There is a big difference between playing and coaching, so this opportunity will give me a good gauge of where I am as a coach.

Now his involvement at national level is viewed as mutually beneficial as the Proteas groom the next generation of coaches.

“In the past we have brought in franchise coaches, physiotherapists and trainers within our structures to experience and learn how the Proteas environment operates,” said South Africa’s team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee.

“Charl has made good strides as high performance coach with the Cobras and we feel this will be a great opportunity for him to get a feel of coaching at the highest level and to further enhance his credentials as a developing coach within our structures.”

Langeveldt – who played county cricket for Kent, Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Somerset – said: “There is a big difference between playing and coaching, so this opportunity will give me a good gauge of where I am as a coach.”

Langeveldt was a renowned limited-overs bowler and played 72 one-day internationals for South Africa as well as claiming an impressive 17 wickets in nine Twenty20 appearances for his country.

Meanwhile, his former Cape Cobras team-mate Justin Ontong has been added to the squad that takes on the Windies in three 20-over clashes, starting at Newlands on Friday.

South Africa are 5.00 to win the upcoming World Cup, with Pakistan 11.00 and West Indies 13.00.
