It transpires that Rajput was actually told he was sacked before play started this morning. I'm not sure if he stayed at the ground or left immediately.

I'm really hoping this isn't someone sending out fake news but this source is usually quite reliable.

Great News :) Now, Zim will definately include quality players like Stevens Saul & Inamuel Bawa and win games.
ZC should also include Vusipuzi Sibanda as batting coach and Ncubee as bowling coach. Ncubee can teach them how to bowl fast and land yorkers
Robo to rule :oops:

Jeez that's brave. He's going to have to pull a giant rabbit out of the hat. In theory he should be able to rehash things for these qualifiers because we won't be facing this level of bowling, but thereafter its going to be tough.

I wonder what he is and isn't allowed to do? There will be a few caveats along with his appointment. I don't think it will ever occur to some of these admin guys how far down the toilet we are. They'll be thinking a stern talking to the players and a couple of net sessions and Mr Houghton will produce some magic. This cricket malarkey is beyond them, they'd make better nuclear physicists.
We've finally got one of the right guys for the job, but 20 years too late.

Apparently Rajput is being retained in some kind of 'advisory role' or something?

Probably to avoid having to pay him off. he won't really have any voice or input I'm sure.
