Do we know who all have applied for Head Coach position so far?

I get a feeling that there may not be many high profile coaches that might be interested to be employed under ZC.
You'll be surprised, theres only 11 test nation head coach positions in the world.

Look at our history, we have a star studded coaching lineup for the most part, except when we experimented with locals in Waller and Mangongo when we were jewwing up on finances.
Last 20 years:
Geoff Marsh (after coaching oz)
Phil Simmons
Curran
Brown
Butcher
Mangongo
Waller
Whatmore
Streak
Rajput
Houghton

We don't even know who's put in a CV, who they've approached or who's on the shortlist.
The only rumour has been Trevor Penny.
Man, we need more transparency than this.

Not a single journalist or sports writer has followed up on the Singo Saga. Only Russia and China have tighter control over information.

If I could pick a coach of my choice it would probably be Andy Flower, but i know thats not on the table.

There’s total transparency, we ain’t heard anything because there’s nothing to tell.

Nobody is crazy enough to take this gig on :lol:

With the hundreds of franchises around and the amount of money that comes in by coaching them, coaching an international team is no longer the priority of top coaches. Esp when we are dealing with tems outside of the big 3.

If I'm not wrong, Pakistan are currently trying to rope in Shane Watson, who is not a high profile coach first of all and on top of that, despite agreeing to pay him a huge amount of salary, Watto still hasn't made up his mind. We are talking about coaching a former ODI and T20 WC winning team. People have different priorities now.

For Zimbabwe, if he agrees, I think Grant Flower will be a great option. Otherwise I won't mind someone from the Subcontinent who is street smart. Depends on the options we have.

Bent government, bent law enforcement, blackouts, thickset women and a thriving tape ball scene. What’s the downside exactly?

Would be an easier gig than the Zim gig for sure.
