Zimbabwe Cricket Names Former Captain & Rebel Streak Bowling Coach

Zimbabwe Cricket has appointed former captain Heath Streak its new bowling coach, ending a feud with management dating back to April 2004 which led to his removal as captain of the team at that time.

His removal prompted a boycott by most senior players, who eventually followed Streak out the door, decimating the national cricket side.

Zimbabwe Cricket Chief Executive Ozias Bvute on Monday confirmed Streak's appointment, saying it will bolster the country's long-underperforming cricket squad.

In soccer, injured Dynamos striker Benjamin Marere told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye that that he is confident he will soon return to play.

Marere sustained a head injury in a Super Eight semi-final match Sunday against Gunners, which Dynamos won by by a score of 3-2.

The hard-fought game also left Dynamos striker David Shoko with a serious knee injury that is expected to bench him for the rest of the Premier Soccer League season.
