New Coaching Structure

Post by secretzimbo »

Utseya has been fired!?!? Apparently new U19 coaches have been appointed but still awaiting names.

Matsikenyeri is out as batting coach

Rajput is staying (he signed a 1-year extension last September anyway, so no surprise here).

Apparently they've offered Lance Klusener a job and are hoping he comes back, but they are still waiting for him to decide.

These updates were communicated by Dave Houghton as part of his coaching review to the board at a meeting this morning

I had heard Utseya was in trouble . They actually followed through with it. Maybe they will give Matsikenyeri the role. This last u19 World Cup was a really bad look. They had no choice I guess but to get rid of him.

I was looking back through the posts to try and get up to speed with Klusener's last gig here. The most I found was Raza saying that he was good and that the team hadn't done justice to the advice and coaching he'd brought to the table.
I guess what is also important is how LK gets on with Rajput, whether he has a say in selections and batting line ups. Maybe we need him to butt heads with Rajput because the sooner that guy is gone the better. I shake my head daily that we have a head coach that is never here and has done the square root of f$# all.
I'm also guessing Doug Hondo now has new coaching certificates and will be retained. Surely we need to look at specialist spin coaches, certainly for a couple of weeks at a time.

Interesting that DH has to make that announcement, I'm fairly sure they were told the bad news beforehand, but still not a nice thing to have to do.
I'm sure there are other posts for both of them.
The next U19 coach is on a hiding to nothing, don't envy that guy!!.

It's musical chairs basically isn't it :lol: What's that phrase about deckchairs on the titanic? :lol:

Hopefully Klusener accepts. Need to freshen up the national coaches - Matsi and Hondo can concentrate on the franchises or the u19's or something.
