CAPE TOWN: Major changes to Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC), with test skipper Brendan Taylor losing the one-day role and coach Andy Waller becoming the newly-created director of coaching, were announced by the ZC board yesterday.

The changes came on the day Zimbabwe suffered a crushing 100-run defeat by Afghanistan with the ODI series ending in a disappointing 2-2 draw for the home side.

Taylor’s replacement in the ODI and Twenty20 format is Elton Chigumbura while assistant coach Stephen Mangongo moves up to replace Waller, whose last game in charge was yesterday’s defeat. Mangongo led the side as caretaker last year before the appointment of Waller.
