Newly-appointed Southern Rocks and Mid-West Rhinos coaches, Martin Lynch and Jason Gillepsie have expressed satisfaction with the talent abound in local cricket, after watching their sides square off in a warm up game at Takashinga Sports club.
â€œThereâ€™s a lot of talent, Iâ€™m impressed by our bowling line-up. In our batting we have a lot of talent, we had some goals we wanted to achieve most of those with the bat and bowl.
â€œIt is a good opportunity to meet my players and see how they go in a match situation and I have been very impressed,â€ said Jason Gillespie who is a former Australian fast bowler.
Former England cricketer, Martin Lynch who will take charge of Southern Rocks in the 2010-2011 campaign echoed Gillespieâ€™s sentiments, pointing out the need for guidance of the players, if they are to realise their full potential.
â€œThereâ€™s a hell of a lot of talent in Zimbabwe but then now we are talking about guidance and getting them to understand how good they are, we canâ€™t tell them that but they have to see it for themselves,â€ said Lynch.
With a few weeks remaining before the 2010-2011 cricket league season begins, Martin Lynch and Jason Gillespie who have vast experience in the domains of international cricket are expected to play a huge role in uplifting the standards of the domestic franchise system by imparting their knowledge to local cricketers.
