Lance Klusener will be joining him as the batting coach.

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.
