Former English first class cricketer Steve Kirby has been appointed as the new lead bowling coach of the Zimbabwe senior men’s cricket team (Chevrons).

Kirby,44, is set to join the team ahead of the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, which begins next month in Australia.

The former fast bowler played for Somerset between 2011 and 2014, claiming over 180 wickets across the three formats of the game, and re-joined the club as a coach ahead of the 2021 season.

 ZC Director of Cricket Hamilton Masakadza confirmed the development saying they are delighted to welcome Kirby in the team. 

“He has done incredibly well as a player and coach in county cricket over the years and, as we seek to continue strengthening all facets of our game and improving our performances at the highest level, we count ourselves privileged and fortunate to have him as part of our technical set-up.”
