Hamilton Masakadza is the new "Director of Cricket" at ZC

Well, that's not a bad retirement plan. Now ZC has to define what the responsibilities of this role are. Lot of teams now have this Director. I honestly don't know what the expectations are of that role.

Well Mazakadza has shown himself to be a snake and one of the boards henchmen, just like Utseya was/is. So I don't hold much hope for this. If Heath Streak, Campbell, Mangongo couldn't make a difference I can't see this new appointment coming to much. Cheers
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

What’s the difference between Director of Cricket and Managing Director? All they have is cricket, it’s not like there are multiple facets to ZC, it’s just a duplication of roles in my opinion. Having said that, Hammy will surely be better as a hands on guy than Makoni. If rumors about fancy salaries are true that’s another 250k expenditure. In theory you have to bring a lot to the table to justify that....except in Zimbabwe of course. :lol:
Between him and Givvy they’re eating at least half a bar a year :lol:
We pay back 4 a year, leaving 5 for cricket and 2 guys take 10% of that?

Not a particularly inspiring appointment. He hasn't been away from the game long enough to bring anything new to the table - eg. anything he could have to offer he could have done a few months ago when he was captain. Just another jobs for the boys selection, and the cycle continues.

If you put that in terms of FC players’ salaries ZC could employ another 100 cricketers :lol:

If you now add the coach’s salary, his support staff and a couple of others, plus BT and KJ you’ll probably get close to a dozen people taking more than half the available money! In what universe is that sustainable? .....
I almost forgot..Zimbabwe! :lol:

He obviously didnt retire for nothing. This was clearly the plan.

This suggests to me that makoni is keeping his job so they had to create a new one for Hami

Masakadza is a scoundrel and simply represents the mediocrity that flourishes at ZC.
