Profile

A right-arm fast bowler, Corrie van Zyl made his first-class debut for Orange Free State in 1981-82, in the middle of the apartheid era. As a result, his international career had a delayed start - he made his debut at the age of 30 during the 1992 tour of West Indies - and spanned two ODIs. He took up coaching after a spell as cricket manager of the Free State Cricket Union and in 1998 began a five-year spell as assistant coach of the South African national team. Later, he was head coach of the Eagles, with whom he won six domestic titles. In April 2009, he was appointed coach of the High Performance Centre based in Pretoria and in January 2010 was appointed national coach on an interim basis following the resignation of Mickey Arthur.
