That would require a payout. Keep him as a coach and make him coach guys in Kariba 6 days a week. At least he will go back thin, hot and angry.

He must be on the loosest coaching contract ever drawn up in the history of cricket.

I think Zimbabwe should get a local coach. Someone like Heath Streak or even Campbell.

This is a genuine request-
We had others that posted similar stuff incessantly, but they appear to have taken a break.

Rather just read and enjoy, but don't contribute unless you have a bit of knowledge about Zim cricket, as the name of the forum suggests. It's all on here already, just use the search function if you're not up to speed.

Does anyone have Rajput's wins percentages, in each format? They must be very very low now, and I'd guess lower than previous coaches who have been fired over the years.

Waaay lower. He must be up there with Kenya, Uganda and Nigerian coaches.

The whole not taking the blame himself shows just how at odds the players and him actually are. Any other team in the world and the coach will always place himself in the firing line to save the players but not with this clown.

I've done some calculations, and here's Rajput's record in charge of Zimbabwe since he was appointed in May 2018:

Tests: Played 10; Won 2; Draw/Tie/NR: 1; Lost 7; Win %: 20%

ODIs: Played 38; Won 7; Draw/Tie/NR 1; Lost 30; Win %: 18.42%

T20Is: Played 47; Won 14; Draw/Tie/NR 2; Lost 31; Win %: 29.79%

Most of the wins have been against associates, including 4 ODIs against UAE and some T20Is against Singapore, Nepal, Scotland, Ireland etc.



Horrific numbers.

Frikken hell. Justin Langer got fired after winning an Ashes 4-0 and we gave Rajput a new contract. This man is literally stealing a living, and ZC do not give a shit. It just infuriates me how ZC get away with all this bullshit.
