Khulna:

Elton Chigumbura has stepped down as Zimbabwe cricket captain following the 2-2 Twenty20 series draw in Bangladesh.

Allrounder Chigumbura said Friday "it's the best time to leave it to the next guy to lead us."

Zimbabwe won the last two games to salvage a draw in Bangladesh.

The 29-year-old Chigumbura said he still wanted to contribute to the team as a senior player.

His leadership was heavily criticized when Zimbabwe lost 3-2 to minnow Afghanistan in their one-day international series late last year.

Chigumbura's resignation coincided with former captain Brendan Taylor saying he would consider returning to play for Zimbabwe after his contract with English county team Nottinghamshire expires. Taylor quit international cricket following last year's World Cup to take up a three-year deal with Nottinghamshire.
