South Africa’s Mdingi Express, Makhaya Ntini, has been appointed as the new coach of Zimbabwe on an interim basis.
This after Zimbabwe Cricket terminated Dave Whatmore’s four-year contract signed in April last year with immediate effect yesterday.
Ntini has been serving as bowling coach once he joined Zimbabwe in January on a two-year contract.
It doesn’t stop there as far as South Africans in Zimbabwe are concerned, with former Dolphins coach Lance “Zulu” Klusener being named as the new batting coach on a two-year contract.
Also relieved of his duties as captain was Hamilton Masakadza, with his deputy, Graeme Cremer, being been roped in as the stand-in captain.
Former Zimbabwe captain Tatenda Taibu has been appointed new convenor of selectors as part of sweeping changes to Zimbabwe cricket.
In a statement, ZC said they had made the changes following the performance at the 2016 World Twenty20 in India earlier this year.
