Former Proteas cricketer Dale Benkenstein has joined Lancashire as a batting coach.
Benkenstein has agreed to a short-term contract with the County Championship outfit in the United Kingdom.
He has previously been Hampshire’s head coach and South Africa’s batting coach.
“We were looking to add some additional expertise to the coaching team and Dale brings a wealth of experience to the changing room,” said Lancashire director of cricket Paul Allott.
“He is highly respected in county cricket following his time as a player at Durham and then coaching at Hampshire.
“To add that knowledge into our dressing room can only be a good thing as we look to build on our positive start to the season.”
Benkenstein played 23 ODIs from 1998 to 2002.
He recently made a rare appearance in club cricket, representing DB Academy in the KwaZulu-Natal Inland Cricket Union premier league – and struck a half-century against Masibemunye Cricket Club.
