He will remain part of the team set-up for the rest of the South African season.

Rabada said he was glad that Enoch Nkwe, who was briefly South Africa's first black African national coach when he took the side to India earlier this season as interim team director, had chose to accept a position as assistant coach to Boucher.

Kallis, one of cricket's greatest allrounders, played 519 times for South Africa across all formats before his retirement in 2014.

The presence of a trio of former global superstars could easily leave the former interim team director and now assistant coach Enoch Nkwe, who took the side to India, in the shadows.

South Africa are preparing to face England in a nine-week tour that includes four Test matches, three ODIs and three T20Is, all live on Sky Sports.

'Langeveldt said he has an offer to work in South Africa's senior side, which is why he requested the Bangladesh Cricket Board to let him go, ' cricket operations committee chairman Akram Khan told Bangladeshi newspaper Prothom Alo.

"Jacques and Mark are both greats of the game so just to listen to them share their knowledge - not necessarily skills-based, but how you mentally approach certain situations. They speed up the learning process".

Kagiso Rabada can come across as jaded, which is hardly surprising considering he is among the hardest working fast bowlers in world cricket. Everything is well-drilled and well-oiled.

CSA later confirmed that Charl Langeveldt had been appointed as bowling consultant for the season. "There's no hesitation, they have a plan and they're really decisive". Langeveldt previously filled the same role between 2015 and 2017 before the appointment of Ottis Gibson as head coach.

"I really enjoy working with him, he is in the same bracket as Jacques and Mark". They know what they're talking about. They've been playing at this level for a very long time.

"Enoch is someone I've worked with since I was at age-group level, along with guys like "Quinny" [Quinton de Kock] and Temba [Bavuma]", Rabada said. "The guys who have worked with him know his quality". He's no doubt a valuable person to have in the changeroom.

"He would have had to make a decision whether he was going to walk away or stay".

"I'm really glad that he did because I've got a relationship with him and so do the other players. He's made a decision to invest in the team. hopefully we can reap our rewards".
