South Africa have appointed former Test opener Neil McKenzie as batting coach until the end of the ICC World Twenty20.
McKenzie, who played for Hampshire between 2010 and 2013 where he played a key role in two domestic T20 triumphs, retired from playing at the end of January.
He is now set to formally join up as a batting coach ahead of the two-match T20 International series against England, as the build-up begins in earnest for next month's showpiece in India.
McKenzie, 40, played 58 Tests and 64 one-day internationals during his career, amassing more than 19,000 first-class runs.
The two T20s against England take place on Friday and Sunday respectively, while South Africa will also kick off their World Twenty20 against England on March 18 in Mumbai.
