• Ntini set for Zimbabwe role

    Former Proteas fast bowler Makhaya Ntini is set to take up a coaching role with Zimbabwe.

    According to the ZimSportsNews.com, Ntini is in talks with Zimbabwe Cricket with the view of him becoming bowling coach of the national team.

    Zimbabwe’s recent poor form has prompted the country’s cricket bosses to strengthen the backroom staff available to head coach Dav Whatmore, following a disappointing run of performances against Afghanistan.

    Zimbabwe Cricket is believed to also be on the hunt for a batting coach as well as a specialist spinning coach.

    Ntini, 38, played 101 Tests for South Africa, taking 390 wickets at an average of 28.82.

    He also featured in 173 ODIs and 10 T20Is.
