Johannesburg - Former Proteas captain Graeme Smith was on Friday appointed as South Africas Director of Cricket for a two-year term until the end of April 2022.

"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 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 international level," he concluded.
