Cape Town - Ashwell Prince was on Tuesday announced as the Cape Town Blitz head coach ahead of the Mzansi Super League T20 Player Draft.
The Player Draft is scheduled to get under way at 10:00 on Wednesday.
The former Proteas batsman was expected to take charge of the Blitz - who are based at Newlands - as Prince is currently the coach of the Cape Cobras.
