Northern Cape appoint Loots Bosman as interim coach


Northern Cape Cricket have announced the appointment of Lungile Loots Bosman as interim coach of the Northern Cape Senior Provincial cricket team. 

Bosman is a legend of cricket in the Northern Cape and played the game for many years for his beloved club, Yorkshire and his provincial team the Griqua Diamonds.

During his playing career Loots gained a well-deserved reputation as been a destructive top-order batsman for the Proteas, Africa XI, Derbyshire, Diamond Eagles, Dolphins, Mumbai Indians and South Africa “A”.

He made his International Twenty20 debut in February 2006 and his One-Day International (ODI) debut came a few months later.

In the T20 series against England in 2009, he scored 58 off 31 balls in the first game and 94 off 44 balls in the second game. In this latter game he was also involved in a record T20 partnership with Graeme Smith that yielded 170 runs for the first wicket.

“We at Northern Cape Cricket are very excited with the appointment of Loots Bosman. Loots is vastly experienced and has a lot to offer the team in terms of preparation, mindsets and getting the best out of the players. We wish Loots all the best for the forthcoming season,” said Shaheed Alexander, Cricket Services Manager at Northern Cape Cricket.
