KwaZulu-Natal Inland Cricket have appointed one of their former bowlers, Athi Maposa, as assistant coach ahead of the new season.

Inland are preparing for life under the new Cricket South Africa structure where they will campaign in Division Two.

That division will have seven teams fighting for promotion to Division One, which will have eight teams, including the Dolphins in Durban.

Maposa, who also spent some time with the Dolphins, joins the new technical team of the Pietermaritzburg-based side led by recently-appointed head coach Michael Smith.

The appointment of Maposa was confirmed on Tuesday by Inland boss Jason Sathiaseelan who said the former player has signed a two-year deal.

“The new squad and the whole technical team will assemble in Pietermaritzburg on July 1,” he said.

Maposa last played for the Inland Blues in 2019. He had spent 11 years with the side after being promoted from the Inland U19 structure.

Before his appointment, the 31-year-old Maposa was the Sweetwaters Hub development coach.
