Johannesburg, June 4: Former India coach Gary Kirsten is all set to take over the reigns of the South African cricket team with his ex-teammate Allan Donald assisting him, a media report said.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) would make a formal announcement on Monday, ending a two-month speculation as the officials interviewed several candidates from across the globe for the position, according to 'Saturday Star'.
Kirsten, who had a fantastic three seasons with Indian team guiding them to World Cup triumph and to the No 1 ranking in Test cricket, was tipped to take over from Corrie van Zyl, who has returned to his position as head of the CSA High Performance Centre.
CSA has declined to comment on the issue as they intend to make a formal announcement after the coach has signed the contract on dotted lines. PTI
