Today marks my last game as Zimbabwe manager. Unfortunately, we were not able to make it to the semi-finals, unfortunately, some lower-end batting partnerships proved costly in a couple of games.

I may comment on the state of the Zimbabwean squad in greater detail if the election is hotly contested. I would encourage any credible candidate to run in the upcoming election in order to avoid a repeat of the calamity of Season 45. Managing Zimbabwe in the next two seasons will be challenging, but there is definitely enough skill in order to be competitive.

Thanks and good luck to the next Zimbabwe manager!

As no one is running against me, I shall be the next Zimbabwe manager.

I will be looking for an assistant or two, so drop me a message if you're interested.

My first senior tour in charge. Here's the 18 we've selected. A couple of tough decisions with a few players unlucky to miss out. We have lots of good spin options. Hopefully they can get a bit of support from our quicker bowlers.

Pitch Gods have given us slow, slow, slow, crumbling, crumbling. I'd have preferred a couple of dry pitches rather than 3 slows.

Thank you for those who voted and installed me as the new manager. Topmanager is an absolute gent and has agreed to be my assistant. I’m after at least one more assistant if anyone would like to throw their hat in the ring.

Thank you to everyone who voted in the election.
We have a management team in place and thanks to both of my assistants, TopManager & Verdi for helping me out.
We are aiming for a younger squad with players under the age of 29 ideally with a view to building a Zimbabwe unit that can climb up the rankings in a couple of seasons. As it stands, we're bottom of t20 and bottom of 50 over!

Ideally, players will be considered for national selection if their primaries are at least exceptional, exceptional. We're looking for at least spectacular fielding and there is a focus on players with talents (opener, seam specialist, boundary hitter, swing, old ball bowler etc). This should help us punch above our weight.

Thank you to everyone with Zimbabwe players who is helping us with training schedules. I've dropped a number of messages about current and future players and the support has been great.

If any manager has a Zimbabwe eligible player and you think they've been missed, give me a shout. I may have missed them or they may have something missing.
