Zimbabwe replace Curran as coach
Kevin Curran
Curran won nine matches out of 42 in his two years in charge
Robin Brown will replace Kevin Curran as Zimbabwe coach following their 3-0 one-day series defeat by South Africa.

The former Gloucestershire all-rounder has been given a new but as yet unspecified role with Zimbabwe Cricket.

Curran, 47, took over from Phil Simmons in September 2005 and won nine of 42 matches played during his tenure.

Former Zimbabwe captain Brown, 56, takes over on 1 September and his first challenge will be the World Twenty20 tournament in South Africa.

Brown said: "I am very lucky to get the job and I am excited about it. The guys are currently on a high. I hope I can continue with the re-building and get some positive results for Zimbabwe."
