ZC confirm Klusener signing:

“Former South Africa all-rounder Lance Klusener has rejoined the Zimbabwe senior men’s national team as batting coach. He is taking over from Stuart Matsikenyeri, who now moves to the position of assistant coach, while Lalchand Rajput remains in charge as head coach of the national side.”

So Matsi is....promoted? Presumably it means Matsi is basically local head coach for the 300 days of each year when Rajput fucks off and hides in Mumbai?

I’m not sure about that. The ZC release says Ervine is all format captain and Regis is all format VC.

Cricinfo reporting that Williams is still test captain though. I find that very hard to believe though and like I say, the original release says Ervine. Let’s see

Well he did say in that interview last week that he wanted the national job one day!!!

Great appointment for the women! I know Adam Chifo personally and he’s done a solid job with very limited resources with the women, but Brent is next level. Great stuff
