The good news is this means BT is still fully committed to the ZIM team.

Solid appointment, although I'm not sure why he's only in as an "interim"...

Yeah, unless he doesn't want a long term thing and is just happy to fill in some time

Rajput is one of the best among indian coaches. He has been known for working with the youths and upcomming cricketers and giving them lot of confidence. BCCI appointed him in that World T20 with some meaning.

Players like Gambhir, Uthappa, Rohit Sharma, Dinesh Karthik, Yusuf Pathan were differant cricketers after that innaugral world t20 trump, even Kohli spend some usefull time with Rajput.

It will be great opportunity for youths in Zimbabwe to work with Rajput and play for the national team.

It's hard to get too excited isn't it. This time 5 or 10 years ago we'd get amped up about the possibility of a new coach turning things around, but now it just shuffling deck chairs on the Titanic isn't it.

Once this core group finishes up, we're done aren't we? We might even be done now, it just takes a handful of players to decide they are best served by becoming T20 mercenaries.

You are right, it is hard to get excited by much these days. We are effectively a second-tier test side, can't afford to play anyone except India, and have likely played our last CWC.

Who makes up the rest of the coaching and physio contingent? They’re the guys I’m most interested in.

Rajput will like to live up to his reputation as a coach. But his potential and aspirations may be marred by the prevailing situation in the Zimbabwe Cricket. Are there quality players to train? This is one major question the Zimbabwe Cricket will have to answer before Rajput starts his string in right earnest.
