EASTERN CAPE CRICKET is delighted to announce the appointment of Rivash Gobind as head coach of the Warriors franchise.

As a player Rivash represented KwaZulu-Natal, the Dolphins and South Africa U-19s; he also captained both KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa U-19. He has a Masters in Business Administration and is a certified level 3 coach.

In 2012, Gobind was appointed assistant coach of the Dolphins team under Lance Klusener, and helped the side win the 2013–14 Ram Slam T20 Challenge. He was the head coach of the Dolphins teams for the last six weeks of the 2015–16 Sunfoil Series.

In August 2016, Gobind was appointed assistant coach of the Warriors, where he led the Warriors as the interim coach on Malibongwe Maketa’s call-up to the Standard Bank Protea side. As the interim coach Rivash has overseen the Warriors sharing the Momentum One Day Cup trophy and outperform previous years’ achievements to finish runners up in the Sunfoil Series.

The team is now looking forward to a break before they reconvene for the pre-season activity for the 2018/ 2019 season.
