Johannesburg, May 18 (IANS) Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Thursday nominated a five-member panel, including two former national coaches Gary Kirsten and Eric Simons, to recommend a suitable candidate for the position of Proteas head coach, which it aims to fill by the beginning of September.
Incumbent Russell Domingo, who has been in charge since after the Champions Trophy in mid-2013 has had his contract renewed three times and his current contract expires at the end of the England tour in August.
