    Skipper Graeme Cremer, all coaching staff fired by - Zimbabwe Cricket

    Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has fired the captain of its cricket team, Graeme Cremer along with the entire coaching staff after the elimination of team during the ICC World Cup qualifier. The team has lost their ICC World Cup qualifier by just three runs to the United Arab Emirates on 22nd March, giving Afghanistan and Ireland a chance to fight  it out for the last remaining spot in the upcoming 2019 ICC World Cup.

    The nation’s cricketing body has fired bowling coach Douglas Hondo, head coach Heath Streak but also batting coach Lance Klusener, fielding coach Walter Chawaguta, fitness coach Sean Bell, team analyst Stanley Chioza and all other coaching staff, including Zimbabwe A coach Wayne James and Under-19 coach Stephen Mangongo.

    Report says, former captain and leading batsman Brendan Taylor is likely to take over the team's leadership.

    Important Highlights

    • The statement, giving orders to the staff to quit was issued by Zimbabwe Cricket MD Faisal Hasnain via an email.
    • However, Streak and his staff refused to resign on the principle that they did not consider their overall work as a failure.
    • Expressing his disappointment, Heath Streak said, “as a former player and a coach, to be given an email with no full explanation  or even the courtesy of a hearing is something I never expected.”
