Former Zimbabwe batsman Kevin Curran passes away, aged 53

Former Zimbabwe coach Kevin Curran dies at the age of 53 after collapsing while jogging in Mutare.

Zimbabwe Cricket have announced the sudden death of former national team coach and batsman Kevin Curran at the age of 53.

Curran, who enjoyed stints at Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire, is believed to have collapsed while jogging in Mutare as he prepared his team, the Mash Eagles, for their Twenty20 clash against Mountaineers.

Managing director of Zimbabwe Cricket Wilfred Mukondiwa said: "We are still in shock, Kevin was the epitome of health and we have yet to make sense of this tragic loss. KC's past and continued contribution to the game of cricket is unquestionable and dates as far back as his playing days up until the phenomenal work he had been doing at Mash Eagles."

The scheduled T20 matches have since been postponed.
