Campbell steps down from ZC role
Alistair Campbell has stepped down from his role as Zimbabwe Cricket's (ZC) director of international cricket and commercial affairs in a letter addressed to ZC chief executive Wilfred Mukondiwa.
Campbell, who is a former Zimbabwe captain that played in 60 Tests, wants his exit back-dated to 1 October so that he could serve his term until the end of the year.
In his letter, Campbell said: "Dear Wilfred, It is with great sadness that I tender my resignation as Director International Cricket and Commercial.
"In the interests of getting this done as amicably as possible, I am suggesting that this (my resignation) be back-dated to 1st of October 2015 to allow for the three-month notice period to end 31st December 2015.
"I do not think that it is in the interests of either parties for me to be in the office for that long, therefore I would like to complete the hand over by the 15th of November 2015 thus allowing my successor ample opportunity to get his feet under the desk."
Campbell was instrumental in Zimbabwe getting toplay more cricket recently, with tours to the African country by Pakistan, India, New Zealand, Ireland and currently Afghanistan.
The 43 year-old Campbell is still also owed money by the union, an issue he mentions in his resignation letter.
The letter states further: "You will also be aware that I am owed money by Zimbabwe Cricket. I would appreciate it if this matter is dealt with prior to my departure.
"Please, would you kindly ask the Human Resources Department to finalise my exit package as soon as possible so as to achieve the specified exit timeline.
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank Zimbabwe Cricket for the opportunity and I wish them well in the future."
