Zimbabwe Cricket managing director Wilfred Mukondiwa has announced that he will be resigning from the position in June as he will be retiring.
The International Cricket Council’s (ICC) outgoing chief financial officer, Faisal Hasnain, will replace Mukondiwa.
Meanwhile, the ICC confirmed that Ankur Khanna will succeed Hasnain as their new chief financial officer.
“I have had an enriching experience at ZC and in the sporting industry in general,” Mukondiwa, who is currently 64, said. “My tenure was punctuated with various challenges which I believe, if all stakeholders were united and shared a common sense of purpose, are not insurmountable but of a temporary nature. In that regard, it is gratifying to see the player base growing and young players coming into the limelight. This is a positive development for the future.”
Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani added: “While we regret losing Mr Mukondiwa’s active leadership and guidance, the board is pleased to appoint Mr Hasnain to the role of managing director.
“We believe his impressive résumé, experience and desire to succeed equip him well for the challenges ahead, and we are confident that he will build upon the strong foundation that Mr Mukondiwa is leaving.”
