Curran dies at 53

Former Zimbabwe all-rounder and national coach Kevin Curran passed away this morning in Mutare at the age of 53. According to a statement by Zimbabwe Cricket, he collapsed while jogging but details regarding the exact cause of his death are yet to be determined.

He was the coach of the Mashonaland Eagles team and was in Mutare preparing for their T20 match against Mountaineers today.

Curran’s death comes as a huge shock and loss to the cricket fraternity in Zimbabwe.

Expressing deep regret at the shocking development Zimbabwe Cricket’s managing director Wilfred Mukondiwa in a statement to espncricinfo said, “We are still in shock, Kevin was the epitome of health and we have yet to make sense of this tragic loss.”

Curran made his international debut in the 1983 World Cup and was one of the most successful overseas players in English domestic cricket where he scored 1000 runs in a season five times. (Cricinfo)
