Terry Duffin has been sacked as Zimbabwe captain ahead of the upcoming one-day international series against Bangladesh with Prosper Utseya being named to take over on an interim basis.
The selectors are to discuss the captaincy in more detail in a move to appointing someone in a more permanent role.
Duffin only arrived in Zimbabwe a couple of days ago from England where he was playing club cricket and the decision was a complete surprise to him.
The reason given for his sacking was his leadership in the Caribbean where Zimbabwe lost the ODI series 5-0.
A 17-man squad has been named for the five match ODI series against Bangladesh with the first match being played on 29th July
