Former wicketkeeper-batsman Wayne James' four-year tenure as a Zimbabwe Cricket national selector has ended.

James was dismissed on 22 August, shortly after the selection meeting which saw veteran batsman Brendan Taylor dropped for the third and final ODI against South Africa.

His removal is the latest in a string of recent ZC changes, after chairman Peter Chingoka resigned, the veteran Andy Waller became director of coaching and the outspoken Stephen Mangongo was hired as head coach.

Taylor, meanwhile, has lost the Twenty20 International and ODI captaincy to all-rounder Elton Chigumbura. He has, however, retained the Test leadership.

The 48-year-old James, will no longer be a part of Zimbabwe Cricket's cricket committee either – but will remain involved with the Matabeleland Tuskers franchise and High Performance programme.
