Cape Town - Cricket South Africa (CSA) has learned with great sadness of the sudden passing of former Zimbabwean all-rounder Kevin Curran at the age of 53.

“It is very sad news,” commented CSA Acting CEO Jacques Faul.

“He is well remembered for his brief playing stint in this country for KwaZulu-Natal and Boland where he always played the game to the best professional standards.

“His biggest contribution to cricket in Southern Africa has, however, come in the huge contribution he has made to returning the Zimbabwe first-class game back to strength. He had a period as senior coach with the Zimbabwean national side and was also heavily involved at Academy and franchise level where he was the coach of the Mashonaland Eagles at the time of his passing.

“On behalf of the CSA family I extend our deepest condolences to his family, friends and colleagues at Zimbabwe Cricket.”
