Cape Town - Former South African bowler Makhaya Ntini has been appointed on a two-year contract as Zimbabwe assistant national team coach, with effect from February 16.

Ntini, aged 38, had an illustrious playing career for South Africa, rising from being a product of the then United Cricket Board’s development programme to becoming the country’s first black African international cricketer.

In 2003, he became the first South African to take 10 wickets in a Test match at the hallowed Lord’s ground in England.

In 2008, he claimed 13-132 in Test match against the West Indies - the best figures ever by a South African in that format of the game.

Ntini retired from international cricket in 2010, after playing 101 Test matches, 173 One-Day Internationals (ODI) and 10 Twenty20 matches for South Africa.
