Devnarain to coach KZN

2013-10-05 00:00

THE KwaZulu-Natal Cricket Union has announced the appointment of Dinesha Devnarain as the new KZN women’s coach.

Devnarain retired from international cricket after representing the Protea women’s team for five years, but will continue to play for the province as a player and coach. She made her South African debut in the 2008/2009 season for the World Cup qualifying tournament and has played 13 ODIs and 10 T20s.

Jay Naidoo, manager of amateur cricket at KZNCU, said: “I am excited to have Dinesha as our provincial women’s coach. She comes with a wealth of playing experience, both at national and provincial level.

“As captain of the provincial team, she has displayed very good leadership skills. Dinesha is a first-generation women cricket coach and we wish her every success in her new appointment.”

Devnarain was equally excited about her appointment. “Leaving international cricket was a tough pill to swallow. One of the highlights of my career was playing at Lord’s and representing my country on the global stage,” she said.

“But I believe I am making the best decision for my future ... one that will place me one step away from my ultimate dream: of coaching the national women’s team.”
