He wants to direct Proteas in all three formats, says Keshav Maharaj
CAPE TOWN: South Africa spinner Keshav Maharaj On Thursday he said he would be more than willing to lead the team in all three formats of the game.
Maharaj has some leadership experience behind him, as he was the home team Dolphins captain during the One-Day Cup this season.
The Dolphins received the title after Cricket South Africa (CSA) suspended the domestic season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
I really enjoyed the captaincy from the moment I had the chance last season. I really want to captain Proteas. It has been my dream. Not many people in the national setting really know this, but the few who do have approached me on the matter, I know, quoted sport24.co.za Maharaj as saying.
I would like to captain the South African team in all three formats and I want to lift a World Cup trophy with my own hands, as the team leader. I didn't just want to play for the Proteas. Lifting those silverware has always been my childhood dream, he added.
At the beginning of this year, Faf du Plessis he resigned as the captain of South Africa. Quinton de Kock he replaced it as the ODI pattern of the Proteas.
De Kock also led South Africa in the T20I series against England and Australia this year.
The CSA has yet to name the test side employer.
South Africa was scheduled to tour Sri Lanka for three ODIs and three T20Is, but the series was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
