Former Australia star Michael Hussey will work with the South African side during the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
Cricket Australia (CA) confirmed Hussey will work as a consultant to the Proteas during the six-week tournament, with the 39-year-old to attend training sessions and give advice on how to play in Australian conditions.
“We’ve had some discussions with Mike Hussey about him joining us on a consultancy process,” South Africa coach Russell Domingo told CA.
“He’s a middle order batter of immense experience and knows conditions very well in Australia.
“He’ll play a very low-key role in the background.”
Hussey has recently been linked to the India top job, but denies he is out to replace Duncan Fletcher in the role.
The batsman retired from international cricket two years ago, but still features in the T20 form of the game both in the Big Bash and Indian Premier Leagues.
