South Africa coach Russell Domingo has left the team in the U.K. on account of a family emergency. Domingo’s mother was in an accident and is critical in hospital, forcing Domingo to return home.
South Africa face England in the second T20 in Taunton today, followed by the third in Cardiff on Sunday.
South Africa’s support staff consists of assistant coach Adrian Birrell, bowling coach Charl Langeveldt, batting coach Neil McKenzie and spin bowling consultant Claude Henderson, as well as fitness trainer Greg King.
Domingo’s contract ends at the conclusion of the England tour, and although he has not confirmed it, several sources have indicated that he has not reapplied. Domingo has coached the team since mid-2013 and has had his tenure extended three times.
