Zim to participate in the Africa T20 Cup tournament

HARARE - Zimbabwe is set to send a developmental team to compete in the Africa T20 Cup tournament in South Africa which will run from September 4.

Kenya and Namibia will also participate in the tournament, which will also include 12 Cricket South Africa Affiliates as well as Associate member, KwaZulu-Natal Inland.

CSA will host the tournament.

The tournament will consist of four pools of four teams, each with the winners of each pool advancing to the semi-finals on the third of October and the last two to the final set for the next day.

Zimbabwe is in pool A alongside Western Province, Northens and Easterns. All the games in Pool A will be played at Sahara Wilmore Park in Benoni.

During the pool stages, there will be two matches each day with the first in the afternoon and the second in the evening on the Friday and Saturday, and the first mid-morning and the second in the afternoon on the Sunday.

“I am delighted that SuperSport will be providing live and full coverage of 10 playing days, including the semifinals and final,” said CSA chief executive officer Haroon Lorgat, at the launch of the tournament.

To help them develop their talent by having them play with their seniors, there will be at least two under-21 players in each team.

CSA also announced the appointment of former South Africa bowler Makhaya Ntini as the Africa T20 Cup ambassador.
