Former Proteas spin bowler Shafiek Abrahams has been appointed acting General Manager: Cricket, of Eastern Province Cricket and Cricket Eastern Cape.
“Shafiek is a natural fit for the position as he has been the High-Performance Cricket Manager, overseeing both the Warriors and Nelson Mandela Bay Giants,” said EPC and CEC Chief Executive Mark Williams.
Williams is being freed from the day-to-day running of cricket in the province by the appointment of Abrahams.
“Mark will be able to focus on the business of cricket and projects to ensure the long-term sustainability of the company, and to build new capacity and capabilities, including the development of facilities together with our partners,” said EPC President Donovan May.
In his role, Abrahams will oversee both the developmental and the high-performance cricket programs, cricket operations and cricket events.
