‘A true father figure’: CSA mourns former Proteas manager Goolam Rajah
Rajah managed the men’s national team from 1992 until his retirement in 2011
Cricket SA mourned the death of Goolam Rajah on Tuesday, one of the legendary figures of the post-unity period of SA cricket. He had been in failing health for some time and was 74 years old when he died.
Goolie, as he was known by everybody, served first as team manager and then logistics manager of the national men’s cricket team for almost two decades.
At the time of unity, he served on the inaugural Gauteng Cricket Board, was also a senior provincial selector and was co-opted on to the Transvaal Cricket Board executive at the time of the unity negotiations. ..
