Cricket South Africa on Friday appointed Enoch Nkwe as the interim Team Director for upcoming India tour, starting on September 15. He will take over from Ottis Gibson, who had to exit as head coach of the team with CSA announcing a revamped management structure. The India tour will consist of three T20Is and three Test matches. The acting Director of Cricket, Corrie Van Zyl, who has been tasked with filling the vacant post, has been on the lookout for candidates for the position following the restructure of the national men's team.
