HARARE: Zimbabwe Cricket have dismissed national team coach Stephen Mangongo following a poor show during a recent tour of Bangladesh, the union said Thursday.
Union chairman Wilson Manase said Mangongo will now work in talent identification and development.
“Mangongo is good at identifying talent so the board decided to send him back to his area of strength, while we get someone more experienced to replace him as national team head coach,” Manase said.
Mangongo’s dismissal came after the Zimbabwe side lost all eight fixtures during a tour of Bangladesh and two months before the 2015 Cricket World Cup.
Manase said the Zimbabwe Cricket board had not yet found a replacement for him and expected to have a new head coach by the end of the month.AGENCE FRANCE PRESSE
