Hick has just been released
Now that would be a good story, full circle
Why can't ZC make good by hiring Hicks as the Batting coach....Takeover after the contract of the current coach is over...

According to the new the Indian coach is coming back to national which was already looking or debating for his replacement....
ZC is too cheap to fire him & too broke to get a better coach...
Hami is using his influence, giving favors to his boys...
Everyone thought Chigumbura & Chibhabha had gone into retirement....

Only time will tell...

For some reason, both outcomes feel like bad news.

I dont mind Rajput, he's a neutral for me in th sscales of good and bad coaches we have had.

However i get the feeling he's only here until something better pops up. Got one eye on the job boards at all times. Probably sends his agent a weekly text with 'what you have for me?'.

I just feel it.

So many things wrong with his ideas.

He compares us to Australia. For one, Australia did go through a patch after the likes of Mcgrath, Ponting, Warne, Gilchrist et al all left, but they were never far from the top.They had already blooded some youngsters to come through and had the likes of Clarke, Hussey, Johnson, Siddle, Hughes, Watson et al all playing for them. They were never a terrible side. They had a board that still paid their players, had a domestic competition, invested in infrastructure and development. Could afford to host series....the whole lot basically. Australia may have had a short period of transition but it was not long before they were winning World Cups again. We can barely qualify for the WC. So to compare the two is a far cry.

He also suggests that it is just a short period, when the reality is that 16 years is not a short period. It is a consistent mess. People like Taylor have played their whole careers with this mob and if they had a board that actually looked out for the players, who knows what he could have achieved in his career. He would have been able to play along side some quality players and develop his game better. The same can be said for some others like Cremer, Hammy, Elton.

To me, this just affirms that Rajput is not the man we need to coach the side and his views of things are outdated.

It has dawned on me how long I have been tolerating crap from Zimbabwe cricket. I had a great time following the successes of 1992-2003. Since then we have had 17 years of steady decline. I have had many more years of the bad times than the good.
