Makhaya Ntini and Graeme Cremer to take over as interim coach and captain respectively.

The merry-go-round in Zimbabwe's cricket structures completed another cycle on Tuesday as the board approved a raft of changes less than two weeks before India arrive for a short tour.

Coach Dav Whatmore, captain Hamilton Masakadza and convenor of selectors Kenyon Ziehl were all sacked after Zimbabwe Cricket completed its review of the team's performance at the ICC World Twenty20 in India in March, where Zimbabwe failed to make the group stage.

Masakadza and Ziehl had been in their positions for less than a year. Masakadza was appointed captain in January following Elton Chigumbura's resignation, while Ziehl replaced Givemore Makoni as convenor of selectors last July.

Whatmore took over as coach shortly before last year's World Cup in Australasia and was given a four-year contract last May.

However, performances failed to improve during his tenure, with Zimbabwe regularly losing to Associate nations and dropping down both the one-day international and Twenty20 international rankings.
