Lalchand, 56, will start work immediately ahead of a triangular Twenty20 international (T20I) series involving Zimbabwe, Australia and Pakistan in Harare in July. Rajput coached Afghanistan in the last two years before his latest appointment. “Apart from his success with India, he was also Afghanistan’s head coach and led them to Test status,” ZC said. “As a player, Rajput was a solid opening batsman who played Test and one-day international cricket for India.” Updated Date: May 17, 2018 09:43 PM Tags : #Afghanistan Coach #Coach #Cricket #Lalchand Rajput #SportsTracker #Zimbabwe Coach #Zimbabwe Cricket
