On Friday, the Cricket South Africa (CSA) extended the contract with Graeme Smith as its cricket director for two years. Now, Smith will remain with the Proteas until the end of March 2022. Last December Smith was appointed as the acting director of cricket until next year’s IPL. However, due to “evolving global health issues’, BCCI suspended the IPL until further notice on Thursday.

The Cricket South Africa (CSA) Acting Chief Executive Dr. Jacques Faul said, “Graeme has made a huge impact with his energy, expertise, hard work ethic and characteristic determination and passion he has brought to the position during the six months he has served in an acting capacity.”

Faul further added, “Although there is certainly a great deal of work to be done, as reflected by the performances of our various national teams, he has certainly put our cricket on an upward trajectory that provides light at the end of the tunnel.”

Faul has explained the number of events that took place with the CSA during Smith’s first short stint. Speaking of which Faul stated, “He has bought into all the overall pillars of our strategy and that includes the important one of transformation. As far as the technical and support teams he has put together are concerned, the black generic component amounted to more than 70 per cent across the board and the Black African component varied between 30 and 60 per cent for the Standard Bank Proteas for the home international season, for the Momentum Proteas for the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup and for the ICC under-19 World Cup, which we were privileged and proud to host.”

 Smith said he is delighted to stay on board to take South African cricket forward. Smith said, “My appointment brings a degree of permanency to my position which makes planning the road ahead a lot easier. As Dr Faul has said, there is a lot of work that still needs to be done, not just at the international level but throughout our pipeline development pathways as well. But I am determined to get South African cricket back to where it belongs as one of the world leaders at the international level.”
