Zim Cricket partners with PPC

HARARE - Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) received a desperately-needed injection after cement manufacturing giant PPC unveiled a sponsorship for the Under-14 side which will participate at the Interprovincial tournament taking place in Cape Town, South Africa.

The local company provided floppy hats, backpacks for the players to complement the team’s playing kit.

PPC are also sponsoring this year’s football Cosafa Under-20 Championships which are currently underway in South Africa’s North West Province, where Zimbabwe are in Group B with Zambia and Malawi.

The Young Warriors saw their campaign getting off with a 5-1 drubbing to Zambia and risk being knocked out in the group stages.

The Interprovincial cricket tournaments is scheduled for December 9 to 13 and PCC said they are eager to continue nurturing Zimbabwe’s sporting talent going forward.

“PPC upholds a passion for the development of Africa’s infrastructure and people, and is proud to provide quality building material solutions from start to finish,” the company said a statement.

“This commitment to positively impact the personal development of African people has seen PPC espouse the development of national sports as an arena for enriching local communities.

“In Zimbabwe, football and cricket are two sports that PPC Zimbabwe is making a positive impact on. Cricket is also a beloved sport for many Zimbabweans, and PPC Zimbabwe is honoured to support Zim Cricket by assisting the growth of young, up-and-coming cricketers.

“PPC Zimbabwe is pleased to sponsor a team of U14 cricketers, who will be travelling to Cape Town to participate in an interprovincial tournament.

“Zimbabwe has been participating in this tournament, hosted by Cricket South Africa, since the early 1970s. Usually, Zimbabwe participates in the U13, U17 and U19 tournaments, and teams are selected under the Zimbabwe Cricket schools cricket programme.”
