Zimbabwe Cricket Begins Inquest

The tour was the last as the season comes to an end with all contracts also expiring and the ZC is set to come up with a new list for next season’s central contracts for selected players.

Chairman of the Cricket Committee, Alistair Campbell, confirmed that they will ask of the players and coaches about the debacle.

“We will ask of the players what went wrong and we also ask of the coaches why we lost in the manner that we did,” said Campbell.

“We expect senior players to perform better than what they did and we feel they let us down. They are the ones who should lead the younger players but except for Brendan Taylor, they didn’t perform well,” added Campbell.

Senior batsman suffered a shocking loss of form which saw Zimbabwe consigned to heavy defeats in both the Test and the 50-over format.

Zimbabwe lost 20 wickets in a single day as they went on to lose by an innings and 301 runs with only Regis Chakabva managing a half century.

Opening batsman Hamilton Masakadza, Elton Chigumbura and Tatenda Taibu, among others may face the music.

Sports minister David Coltart is among those to show their displeasure at the team’s performance in New Zealand.

The team returned home on Thursday evening and a review of the whole series and the season is set to commence.

Zimbabwe will play South Africa in their next assignment where they will play a five-match T-20 series before with the next Test match set for August against Bangladesh.
