Cricinfo has learned that Chris Silverwood has been signed by Zimbabwe franchise side Mashonaland Eagles as their new player-coach and is expected to arrive in the country before the weekend.

Silverwood, 34, was released by Middlesex last month. He played six Tests and seven ODIs for England making his debut in Zimbabwe in 1996-97.

In a further sign that Zimbabwe cricket is well on the way back to normality, former England seamer Mike Hendrick has been unveiled as the new national fast-bowling coach. He will succeed Heath Streak who is widely expected to become national coach when Walter Chawaguta's contract expires at the end of the year.

Martin Williamson is executive editor of Cricinfo and managing editor of ESPN Digital Media in Europe, the Middle East and Africa
