Zim Cricket appoints Dave Houghton as Head Coach

By ZBC Reporter

ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC) has appointed Dave Houghton as Head Coach of the Zimbabwe Senior Men’s National Team in a reshuffle that sees Lalchand Rajput assuming a new role as Technical Director.

The 64-year-old Houghton, a former Zimbabwe Captain and Coach, is expected to be in place ahead of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier 2022 that will be staged in the country next month.

As part of the coaching changes, Lance Klusener has already re-joined the technical team as Batting Coach.

The former South Africa all-rounder previously served in the same capacity between 2016 and 2018 and was until recently, employed as Afghanistan’s Head Coach.
