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.

“Klusener will be Cricket Consultant of Ranji Team of DCCA for One day tournaments starting from 19th September ( Vijay Hazare trophy and Deodhar Trophy) and domestic T20 tournament scheduled in February 2019,” DDCA president Rajat Sharma told PTI   on Monday.

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

The 46-year old Klusener had played 49 Tests for South Africa with 1906 runs and 80 wickets in his kitty. He had four Test hundreds and best bowling performance of 8 for 64.

However, it was the ODI format where he came into his own in the 171 games in which he scored 3576 runs and took 192 wickets.

The highlight of his career was the 1999 World Cup where he was adjudged Player of the Tournament.
