2011-07-21 00:00

THE KZN Inland Cricket Union (KZNICU) has appointed Anton Roux as coach of the senior team for the Provincial Challenge season that gets under way in a few months.

Roux (30) packs a sizeable chunk of experience and his acceptance of the position has been welcomed by KZNICU president Yunus Bhamjee.

The new coach should be joining Inland in the first week of September.

Currently the head coach of Amsterdam Cricket Club, Roux is also assisting with the Netherlands team.

Roux was in the Titans training squad and is a Cricket South Africa level-three coach.

He was recently head coach of the Northerns Cricket Academy and the Tuks Cricket Academy at the University of Pretoria.

In both positions Roux enjoyed considerable success.

“We feel that Anton Roux has just the right mix of skills, both from a personal and cricket point of view, to take the KZN Inland cricket team to a new level, and his enthusiasm will fit well with the youthful players we have in our team,” said Bhamjee.
