Former Indian captain Anjum Chopra has been appointed as a technical advisor to the South African Women's squad ahead of the Women's World Cup in January and February.
Chopra played in six World Cups herself and was the first Indian to play in 100 One-Day Internationals, leading India to their first ever overseas Test series win.
She will now be responsible for areas including mental training as well as computer-assisted player and match analysis. She will meet the team for first time as they commence preparations for the series of five ODIs and three Twenty20s in the West Indies in January.

"The availability of Anjum Chopra to work within the space of South African women's cricket should close the gap in the international experience between South Africa and the rest of the top women cricketing nations," Max Jordaan, Cricket South Africa (CSA) Manager of Women's and Senior Cricket said.
"The recent performances of the Proteas at the ICC Women T20 highlighted this shortcoming. We believe that the wealth of on-field cricket experience, leadership and business acumen elevates Anjum as the ideal person to lead our team into the semi-finals at the ICC Women's Cricket World Cup in India."
