New Delhi: Former South Africa all-rounder Lance Klusener has been named as the consultant coach of Delhi’s Ranji Trophy team for the upcoming 2018-19 season.

While former Delhi skipper Mithun Manhas will be the chief coach, Klusener’s appointment is certainly the most high profile among the support staff across domestic teams.

“Lance Klusner will be Cricket Consultant for the Ranji Team of DCCA for one-day tournaments, starting from 19 September [Vijay Hazare trophy and Deodhar Trophy], and the domestic T20 tournament scheduled in February 2019,” DDCA president Rajat Sharma said on Monday.

“His role will require his services along side the main coach and all the other coaches in the team,” Sharma added.
