T20 World Cup 2022: Zimbabwe appoints Steve Kirby as Bowling Coach

Zimbabwe signs in Steve Kirby as their new bowling coach ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022 next month. Kirby had last served as the bowling coach at Somerset one of the teams he has played for. Meanwhile, Kirby has also worked with current Zimbabwe Head Coach, Dave Houghton at Derbyshire club.

“I’ve got aspirations to be the very best coach that I can be, and international cricket is something that I really want to be involved with,” Steve Kirby was quoted as saying in a Zimbabwe Cricket statement.

I’ve worked really well with Dave Houghton previously when we were at Derbyshire and when this position presented itself, I felt that I couldn’t turn it down,” added to his statement.

A Glimpse of Steve Kirby Illustrious Career

Steve Kirby has enjoyed a celebrated career in Couty Cricket with England as a pacer featuring in 348 matches across formats. He has proved his mettle in 167 first-class, 104 List A, and 77 T20 matches. Kirby won the County Championship with Yorkshire club & has also represented Gloucestershire, Leicestershire, and MCC.
