South Africa are scheduled to play three Tests versus India in Visakhapatnam, Pune and Ranchi, starting on October 2. His professional cricket career ran from 1993/94 to December 2013. Former Proteas all-rounder Lance Klusener has been appointed batting coach for the three T20Is that will precede the Test series.

Lance Klusener was appointed as a T20I batting consultant alongside the rest of the technical team announced last month while Muzumdar will focus on Test batting.

Interim team director, Enoch Nkwe, and interim director of cricket, Corrie van Zyl, had both said previously that they were looking at identifying an Indian coach with intimate knowledge of the country's conditions to help mentor the South African batsmen.

"Cricket has always been and will continue to be my calling", said Muzumdar in an official CSA statement. I had a "working relationship" with a lot of their players over the years, when they've come here.

'Amol is a flawless fit for us. I will be joining the team soon and then I will be getting a brief from the team director. Amol believes that he can deliver the goods with the young batting lineup of South Africa.

The 44-year-old from Mumbai won't be too familiar to most local cricket fans, but he comes with a decent coaching and cricket pedigree. "That is exactly why I will not stress on spin". Because, at the moment, India have a potent bowling attack. A lot of issues including players fatigue and fitness and many big guns failing to find form leading to below-par results and performances. "Having played first-class cricket for 21 and years and a major part of it for a champion team (Mumbai), I know what a team environment requires and how champion teams operate".

"I was approached last week and I have accepted the challenge". Muzumdar has been a fairly prolific run-scorer during his playing days, amassing a total of 11,167 runs in his domestic cricket career which is the second-highest run tally in Ranji Trophy history.

After playing professional cricket, Mazumdar retired from first-class cricket in September 2014. He has also been the batting coach of Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, alongside coaching India's Under 19 and Under 23 sides at the National Cricket Academy.
