Speaking to the Zimbabwe Telegraph, Matabeleland Tuskers CEO Stanley Staddon has indicated they're in talks with former national coach Robin Brown over becoming the side's coach:
"We are 90 percent close to the deal. What is left is to secure him accommodation in Bulawayo."
Staddon also revealed that several expressions of interest had been received from overseas players, which were being seriously considered, although affording their services could be a problem:
"We have players from South Africa, Pakistan, New Zealand about seven big names, they have applied to Zimbabwe Cricket to come on board. Obviously we are excited about that and we know what impact this is going to have on our national cricket and the profile of the game in the country. The problem though with the players who have shown interest is that of sponsorship. They would need to be paid well. We will be sitting down with the chairman of the selectors Campbell to discuss the names though it seems unlikely that some of the players will come here. But should sponsorship be found perhaps they could be that consideration."
The nearer the new season, gets, the more interesting it becomes...
