Good to see Williams leading in tests though.

Where the article
https://www.3-mob.com/sport/zimbabwe-na ... hTC4JNKjIU
Zimbabwe Cricket have chosen the route of installing two different captains for the men’s national team.

Sean Williams is the new substantive Test captain, while Chamu Chibhabha has been plucked from the wilderness and will now lead the one-day international and Twenty20 international sides as interim skipper.

How about that? Not played a game for Zimbabwe in 16 months and named captain. To be fair, there was a time he was injured and when he has been playing for his Eagles side, Chamu has been good.

The appointments, as recommended by ZC director of cricket Hamilton Masakadza, were unanimously endorsed by the ZC Board at its meeting in Harare today.

In essence Masakadza picked his successors and says they deserved it:

The role of captain is an honour and a responsibility which Sean and Chamu thoroughly deserve, both of them being exceptional players and great servants of our game over the years.

I am delighted that they have accepted their new roles and I extend my congratulations to them and wish them all the best as they help to take Zimbabwe to the next level.

In other news, ZC have also changed the selection panel.

Former Zimbabwe international David Mutendera comes in as the convener. The other selectors are Gavin Ewing, Shepherd Makunura and Prosper Utseya.

Walter Chawaguta, who was the convener of selectors since May 2018, will now move to Rhinos as head coach, where he will be assisted by Stanley Chioza.

Chioza has been replaced as national team analyst by Mufaro Chiturumani.

In the only other change to the national team technical set-up, Travor Wambe has returned to take over from Anesu Mupotaringa as physiotherapist.

ZC will announce a fielding coach and a mental strength coach in due course, but the Board has confirmed the other national team support staff members as follows:

Lalchand Rajput (head coach), Dilip Chouhan (manager), Stuart Matsikenyeri (batting coach), Douglas Hondo (bowling coach), Walter Karimanzira (strength and conditioning trainer), Lovemore Banda (logistics manager) and Darlington Majonga (media manager).

Nepotism at it’s finest.

The people that need a mental strength coach are the supporters :lol:
This is all a very sad sick joke.

I bet there’s no chance of Ryan Burl being in this squad.
Moor should be in the squad regardless, he’s been fantastic in test cricket for Zimbabwe
Burl will be in the squad, he would not fly back from the BPL without any guarantees.

This reminds me of when Lee Germon was plucked from Dutch domestic cricket to captain New Zealand in the mid 90s.
Neil Johnson, Alistair Campbell, Murray Goodwin, Andy Flower (w), Grant Flower, Dave Houghton, Guy Whittall, Heath Streak (c), Andy Blignaut, Ray Price, Eddo Brandes

I never thought Hami was an idiot as well. Really shocked this recommendation came from him. He has basically blocked the likes of Kamunhukamwe and Mudzinganyama and Madheveres path to the senior team as we will always have 1 passenger in the squad now. I know PJ probably has a worse ODI record than Chamu but still they could have picked Williams for all formats. There must be a catch somewhere.

Prosper is also slowly gaining prominence. If these kids do well I see him eyeing Hondos job soon.

Chamu is a surprise. The only thing I can say is that he is actually not too bad at getting to 50 by our standards and he is then pretty terrible at getting hundreds. He is essentially a Tino for the one day team.

Interim captain, which is interesting in itself. I guess it gives Chamu one more chance at international cricket with some added responsibility. Might actually bring out his best.
