Zimbabwe Cricket is looking for new coach

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) is looking for a new coach for their national cricket team. Alan Butcher is the current coach. His contact has not been renewed and the away series against West Indies in March 2013 is perhaps going to be his last match as Zimbabwe coach.
Alan Butcher, the former England batsman, was appointed as the coach in February 2010. As a coach he replaced Walter Chawaguta.
Interested people will have to apply for the post within November 30 as it is the deadline for sending their applications.
For applying for the post, candidates must have the experience of playing first-class cricket, must have at least a recognized Level 3 coaching certificate, and what is more important is that they must have at least five years of coaching experience at the senior level.
Zimbabwe Cricket is also looking for a new coach for their U-19 team. They want to replace the former New Zealand all-rounder Christ Harris who quit his job after the team’s performance in U-19 World Cup.
