Craig Ervine appointed as Zimbabwe full-time limited-overs captain

Craig Ervine has been named as Zimbabwe’s full-time restricted overs skipper while Sean Williams will keep on driving the Test side. Regis Chakabva will be the bad habit skipper in each of the three arrangements. Ervine has driven Zimbabwe in only one Test – where they lost by an innings in Bangladesh – and has been in charge for 15 matches. He’s won six, lost eight up until this point and was named skipper for the voyages through Ireland, Scotland and Sri Lanka.

In another turn of events, Lance Klusener has rejoined Zimbabwe as batting mentor and will take over from Stuart Matsikenyeri, who is currently the associate mentor. Lalchand Rajput keeps on being the lead trainer of the side. Klusener was with the side from 2016 to 2018 and was filling in as the lead trainer of the Afghanistan public group. Zimbabwe Cricket is yet to settle the bowling trainer for the side.
