Robin Brown, the former Zimbabwe captain, has succeeded Kevin Curran as Zimbabwe’s coach. The appointment was made following Zimbabwe’s 3-0 defeat to South Africa in the one-day series at home and Brown’s first assignment will be the Twenty20 World Championship starting next month.
“Zimbabwe Cricket has appointed Robin Brown as the national coach, with effect from September 1, 2007,” said the Zimbabwe board.
Brown, a right-handed batsman and occasional wicketkeeper, played seven one-dayers between 1983 and 1987. He captained Zimbabwe in the early 1980s and retired at the end of the 1989-90 season. He later became the head groundsman of the Harare Sports Club.
“I am very lucky to get the job and I am excited about it,” said Brown after his appointment. “The guys are currently on a high. I hope I can continue with the rebuilding and get some positive results for Zimbabwe.”
Curran coached Zimbabwe for 42 one-dayers since taking over from Phil Simmons in August 2005 and in that period, the team won nine and lost 28 games. The Zimbabwe board stated that Curran had been reassigned but weren’t specific about his new role.
