Zimbabwe Cricket lauds outgoing Lady Chevrons head coach Brent


Zimbabwe Cricket has lavished praise on outgoing national women’s team head coach Gary Brent following the announcement that he has stepped down from his role.

Brent formally resigned as Lady Chevrons coach in October last year, citing his desire to pursue other opportunities and spend more time with his family.

The 47-year-old former Zimbabwe international cricketer, who had been at the helm of the national women’s side since March 2022 is reportedly set to move to Australia.

ZC managing director Givemore Makoni credited Brent for the sterling work he did during his tenure.

“Gary is leaving on a high, with our women’s team having conquered Africa to book their place at the T20 World Cup global qualifier tournament and we are grateful for his dedication and hard work throughout his time with us,” Makoni said.

“We wish him the very best in his future endeavours.”

Brent came agonizingly close to leading the Lady Chevrons to the T20 World Cup two years ago as his team fell just short in the decisive qualifying match against Ireland.

The former Zimbabwe seamer leaves after recently leading the side to the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier 2024 to be staged in the United Arab Emirates.

Brent’s assistant, Trevor Garwe, will temporarily take charge of the team which is currently preparing to face Ireland Women this month in a limited-overs series that includes three one-day international matches and five Twenty20 international games from January 18 to February 2.
