Default Zimbabwe rope in Ntini, Atapattu as coaches: reports

Zimbabwe have recruited Makhaya Ntini and Marvan Atapattu to be assistant coach and batting consultant respectively, according to a report published today on the Zimbabwe Cricket website.

The report says Ntini has been given a two-year contract, while Atapattu has been roped in for the duration of Zimbabwe's tour to Bangladesh starting from January 15.

Ntini, 38, has played 101 Tests, 173 ODIs and 10 T20Is for South Africa over a period of 13 years.

ZC says he will begin work from February 16, while former bowling coach Douglas Hondo has been reassigned to the Zimbabwe A team.

Atapattu, a former Sri Lanka captain and coach, may succeed Andy Waller as Zimbabwe's batting coach.

Currently, he is only a consultant but his "contract will be reviewed after the Zimbabwe tour of Bangladesh, with a view to entering into a longer relationship," the Zimbabwe Cricket report said.

After beating them 4-0, I guess it will no longer be reviewed.

Yeah thats the problem they need to solve first-to rescue their cricket. Even the best coach in the world cant make a difference if such problems persist.

And yeah Atapattu is a lousy coach, one of the main reasons behind Sri Lanka's dip.

Yes Chittagong, despite having such a good squad.

Atapattu isnt a strong character, he is never in control of things. His knowledge in batting might be good, but he isnt a good manager, nor is he good in passing knowledge to others.

His time as Sri Lanka head coach was also rocked by stories of dressing room politics, favouritism, inability to handle big names.

Maybe Bangladesh should have roped in Attapatu as their batting coach...he could have instilled some fearlessness into batsmen's psyche...he made quite a few double centuries in his time....

But nevertheless...good luck to zimbabwe...

Fearlessness is not the attribute I would use to describe Atapattu's batting. 'Boring as hell' would be much closer to the truth.

Batting with someone like jayasuria is contagious in the realm of fearlessness.

The problem is not coaching. What more was the first who turned Bangladesh - at that time even worse than current day ZIM - into a team capable of winning. No such success with Zimbabwe. There is simply no talent left in the country after all white boys decided to leave. Cramer is the only one with sufficient talent to the it, but he has so far only bullied Associates, many of whom are now ranked ahead of Zimbabwe.
