Lalchand Rajput appointed head coach of Zimbabwe cricket team

May 21, 2018 Off By Web Desk

Former India batsman Lalchand Rajput has been appointed Zimbabwe head coach on a three-month deal, which may be extended based on the results.

Rajput replaced Heath Streak, who, along with the entire coaching staff, was sacked in March after the team failed to qualify for the 2019 World Cup.

Rajput’s first assignment will be challenging one, with Zimbabwe set to play a home T20I tri-series against Australia and Pakistan in July.

Rajput had also coached Afghanistan in the last two years.

Zimbabwean cricket has been marred with crises in the last few years, especially on the financial front.
