This Week in Zimbabwe (#9)

Posted by admin on May 30, 2009

It's been another big week in Zimbabwe with the usual thrills, spills and leaks.

Franchise CEO's leaked announced the names of the new franchise CEO's; Kenyon Ziehl for Midlands, Stanley Staddon for Matabeleland, Givemore Makoni for Masvingo and Hugo Ribatika for Mashonaland. Tich Mataz, believed to be a relative of Ozias Bvute, is considered the frontrunner for Manicaland.

ZC are expected to officially annouce this on June 1.

Bangladesh to visit in August

Zimbabwe Independent revealed that Bangladesh will be touring in August for 5 ODI's. All matches will be played at Bulawayo. Arguably this is a bad decision. Zimbabwe have, in the recent past, had a much better record in Harare. Against Bangladesh, it probably would have been better to keep the matches there, and play the tri-series matches in Bulawayo. Regardless, this is how it will be played.

The tri-series has been pushed back to September. India have confirmed they will come, according to Ozias Bvute. ZC are currently in negotiation with two other boards, in all likelihood South Africa and Kenya.
