ZC appoint Vince van der Bijl as consultant

Vince van der Bijl, the former ICC umpires and referees manager, has been appointed consultant to Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) with immediate effect.

He will assist ZC in all cricket matters, working closely with the board, the executive and national team management to map out a positive, constructive path forward.

The move to appoint the South African – a former Natal and Middlesex fast bowler – is part of a major initiative by ZC to restructure its domestic and international cricket.

ZC is currently in a financial crisis and need to sort themselves as they have a T20 tri-series to host against Pakistan and Australia in July.

Zimbabwe’s domestic season came to close on Saturday and they have nor called on Van der Bijl to help move the sport forward in the country.
