The Zimbabwe Cricket has fired national coach Dav Whatmore together with Captain Hamilton Masakadza following the board's review of the team's poor performance at the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 tournament in India.

The former Australia batsman Whatmore, who has previously coached Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Pakistan, took over as head coach in December 2014, after Steve Mangongo's sacking.

According to espncricinfo.com, Makhaya Ntini has been named the interim head coach while Graeme Cremer has taken over as the new captain.

Lance Klusener has been appointed as batting coach on a two-year contract.

The Zimbabwe Cricket board has also restructured the selection panel, which will now consist of a convener, the head coach, and the assistant coach.

Former Captain Tatenda Taibu, has been appointed as the convener and "will have additional responsibilities in development and high performance, and will also assist ZC in bringing former Zimbabwe players back into local cricket."
