ZIMBABWE Cricket have made another addition to their coaching structures by appointing former national team opening batsman Andy Waller as national coaching manager.
Waller, 49, will be responsible for supervising domestic coaching structures and setting up high performance centres in the various provinces.
Waller’s appointment comes a month after that of his former Zimbabwe teammate Dave Houghton, who in his role as director of national coaching will be technical director to national team coaches.
Waller, who made his Test debut at the age of 37 against England back in 1996, was an entertaining right-handed opening batsman and outstanding fielder. He played two Tests and 39 ODIs. He represented Zimbabwe in three World Cups in 1987, 1992 and 1996.
Waller has also coached the Namibian national side.
His son Malcolm has settled well in the Zimbabwe team after an impressive debut tour to Bangladesh and Kenya.
Meanwhile, IndependentSport has learnt that the ZC dissolved the board’s cricket committeeÂ at its last meeting on April 3. Â A source said a new committee to include “people with playing experience will be announced soon”.
The ZC board is also in the process of making two additions to the national selectors panel.
