We need to be pa­tient with Heath Streak

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — There is no bet­ter recipe for suc­cess for Zim­babwe’s new cricket coach Heath Streak than be­ing flanked by two fa­mous former crick­eters, South Africans Makhaya Ntini and Lance Klusener.

Given the vast ex­pe­ri­ence and achieve­ments in the game of the trio there is no doubt that a new dawn beck­ons for Zim­babwe

The vow that Streak made, that “We will leave no stone un­turned in terms of our en­deav­our and quest to im­prove the team’s per­for­mance’’ brings hope to the Zim criket faith­ful.

How­ever, for the dream to be achieved we need to be fully be­hind the former Chevrons cap­tain who gave his all in the fa­mous red, yel­low and green coloured jer­sey .

We must not set the bar very high for the new tech­ni­cal coach­ing team nor ex­pect im­me­di­ate restora­tion of great re­sults.

De­spite our Chevrons hav­ing in its ranks world class play­ers, tal­ented all-rounders, good bowlers and bats­men we need to be pa­tient with Streak.

The mis­sion of course which awaits our former “Cap­tain Mar­vel’’ and his back­ing tech­ni­cal team is very sim­ple, that is to re­store our pride, tak­ing our Chevrons back to its right­ful place among the cricket heavy­weights in the world. Felix Zonke
