Predicament for PSL

HARARE - The Castle Premiership is likely to be extended for another three more weeks following the postponement of the Chan qualifier between Zimbabwe and Zambia.

The much-anticipated match failed to take place at Rufaro Stadium yesterday after the Cameroonian referees were reportedly stranded at Kenyatta International Airport in Nairobi at the time of the scheduled kick off.

Although the outcome was met with disappointment from both the Zimbabwe and Zambian camps, it is likely to cascade down to the country’s top flight league, which is now faced with an even bigger predicament.

The PSL has already been on a break for the last three weeks to accommodate international commitments.

They are expected to continue that trend to allow local-based players to prepare for yesterday’s match.

After Sunday’s first leg that has again been set for Rufaro Stadium, PSL clubs will start to gear up for the BancABC Sup8r Cup semifinal matches which have been scheduled for August 17-18, closing the door for any Premiership action.

The following weekend sees the Warriors travelling to Ndola for the return leg.

The PSL will then again be forced to suspend matches during the run up to that weekend with clubs such as Dynamos and Highlanders having at least three players in the national team camp.
