After Zimbabwe fails to qualify for the T20 World Cup 2024, their cricket chief, Masakadza, resigns

Zimbabwe Cricket Chief Hamilton Masakadza steps down from his position after they failed to qualify for the T20 World Cup 2024. The former cricketer took over the reigns of the board in 2019 following his retirement. Dubbing it the lowest point of his career, Masakadza took full responsibility for the team’s failure.
Masakadza says in his resignation letter, “This decision has come about after careful consideration of the successes and failures of our cricket and my responsibilities.”
“As much as there has been a lot of progress in my tenure, the fact remains that we are the only full-member nation not participating at the next T20 World Cup after our shock loss to Uganda.”
“This was indeed one of the lowest points of my career, and I take full responsibility as Director of Cricket.”
Masakadza said, “This decision was a very difficult one to make, and I remain fully committed to Zimbabwe Cricket and would very much be interested in serving in a different capacity as the organization looks forward to hosting the Men’s Under-19 World Cup in 2026 and the Men’s 50-over World Cup in 2027.”
