In an email sent to Streak Thursday evening, ZC MD Faisal Hasnain wrote: "Further to our discussions, please give your technical staff (and yourself included) until 3pm [Friday] to formally resign. After which time the technical team can consider themselves dismissed and relieved of their duties with immediate effect." Streak and his staff refused to resign, on the principle that they did not consider their overall work a failure - Zimbabwe's ODI win-loss percentage under Streak was 37.5%, significantly more than the 22.6% the side achieved between April 2014 and October 2016, when Streak took over - and decided to let the board make their decision. Streak conveyed his disappointment in a brief conversation with ESPNcricinfo. "For everything I have given Zimbabwe Cricket, as a former player and a coach, to be given an email with no full explanation or even the courtesy of a hearing is something I didn't expect," Streak said. "I understand that every coach's tenure will come to an end, but we should at least have been given the chance to give our comments and ask some questions. I was looking to take the team to the World T20 in 2020."
So @ZimCricketv sack the entire coaching staff because they didn’t qualify for next years @cricketworldcup 2019 in England. WOW that’s hectic and I really thought that Heath Streak was doing a good job with this group of players.— Allan Donald (@AllanDonald33) March 30, 2018
