Rocview cricket tourney turns two

HARARE - The annual Rocview Under-13 Cricket Bash turns two years this morning ith the games being hosted over two venues in the high density suburb of Glen View.

The 10 overs-aside tournament which is a brainchild of Glen View’s only cricket academy, Rocview was won by St Aidens of Chitungwiza on its inception last year.

This year the tournament features nine teams from eight that participated last year with the usual host ground Glen View 3 Primary joint-hosting the games with Glen View 2 High.

Defending champions, St Aidens leads the teams from Chitungwiza and will be happy to have any team from the dormitory town taking the shield home should they fail to replicate their winning instinct they exhibited last year.

The other teams from Chitungwiza include Manyame, Zengeza 4, Fungisayi, and Tangenhamo. Glen View will be represented by Glen View 3 and host Rocview Academy while Shiriyedenga from Glen Norah and Waterfalls’ Frank Johnson make up the eight teams competing today.

Rocview Academy chairman, Enock Ikope said they have made strides to make this year’s edition a better tournament compared to the first one.

“When we launched our pilot project last year we realised a couple of issues that we are keen to rectify so that this tourney will be a success,” Ikope told the Daily News yesterday.

“The games were played over one venue and the final ended up being a six-over match which is why we have put in place two venues this time around.

“We will also present all the top three teams with shields as well as recognising the best bowler, best batsman and player of the tournament with individual accolades.”

The organisers have also managed to retain last year’s sponsors namely; Harvey World Vintage who will provide eats and refreshments as well as the player of the tourney award, Regal Pharmacy with the provision of first aid kit and another local company, Bing.
