Chigumbura relinquishes Zimbabwe captaincy


Elton Chigumbura has stepped down from leading Zimbabwe in all three forms of the game after guiding them to a 2-2 Twenty20 series draw with Bangladesh.

On Friday, Zimbabwe battled their way to an 18-run victory in the fourth T20 in Khulna, the tourists recording back-to-back wins to comeback from 2-0 down to salvage a draw.

Following the victory Chigumbura - who took has led all three teams since July 2014 - announced his resignation, leaving Zimbabwe looking for his replacement ahead of the ICC World T20.

"I have enjoyed the challenges that came with leading the team," he said in a statement. 

"Now I feel it's the best time to leave it to the next guy to lead us so I can focus on my game as a player.

"I am sure I will lead from the front as a senior player as I still believe I have more years of playing in me and of winning games for the team."
