In that interview with Dean du Plessis, Flower didn't rule out coming back to Zim and ZC if everything fell into place. What are ZC doing to secure his services?

It has been engineered to be exactly as it is. The last thing they want is somebody pointing fingers, it took them years to get rid of those guys. Nice tight little family business full of yes men.

Grant Flower is the new batting coach of Sri Lanka, and Mickey Arthur is the new head coach. A 2 year white ball contract for Flower. He deserves so much more than Zimbabwe Cricket, and this news is nothing short of fantastic. Good for him
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

Does Zimbabwe even need a coach? It's not like we play more than 3 games per year.

Would he really bother. The country is a shambles. No medical system and they continue to make the people starve.

On a cricketing standpoint you then have the likes of Hammy who sit on their hands and do bugger all, and the likes of Elton who constantly get picked and produce figures worse than a 5 year old.

There is a strong argument to have a cheaper local if we are playing less than ten games a year since we are talking saving money.
Gary Brent on half the Indian dudes salary wouldn’t be any worse.

Well the reason is they haven’t imported the cash yet. Xmas is a big thing here and ZC will be under increasing pressure to find a solution.
We’ve had a week of no rain as well, if we have a drought this year we are truly doomed. The minute money comes in the last thing on players’ minds will be cricket, they will want to go home and regroup. I don’t see anything happening cricket-wise before next year.
I see even with the more expensive mealie meal there’s a shortage already. There’s no way out of this hole that has been created by these evil people.

From what I gather, Brent is a good guy. If so, I would not be against him getting the role. Not sure if he would want less.

The other issue is that if they save money by hiring a cheaper coach, they will reward themselves with the rest of the money for doing so.
