Roux will oversee the team's bid to qualify for the ICC World Twenty20 2014 in the qualifying event in the United Arab Emirates in November. The board plans to begin the search for a permanent successor after the event. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the guys, a great bunch of blokes, and a squad that has changed over the years. I would like to thank the KNCB for all the support they have given me during this time,” Drinnen said.
