Asked to comment on the appointment of the 62-year-old Zimbabwean, Gilchrist said: "I won't pass comments on his age. It's more what skill he brings and the his level of enthusisam. He had all that in abudnance when he was coacing other teams."

"I don't know Duncan all that well. I met him a couple of times when I played against the team he coached. It's hard for me to comment whether he is going to be successful or not.

"He has obviously got great skills as coach and all the players from his previous teams seem to be supporting him and saying it's a pretty good appointment. So I wish him all the best," Gilchrist said.
