Default Zimbabwe Tri Series

Zim, SA T20s now a three nation series PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 10 May 2012 17:41

Kevin Mapasure

ZIMBABWE’S T-20 series against South Africa penciled for next month has been turned into a triangular series with the inclusion of Bangladesh who made a late request for inclusion in the series that starts on June 24 in Harare.
Bangladesh’s request to Zimbabwe for inclusion was immediately welcomed by the two teams as it would give them more practice opportunities.


South Africa first made the request for the Proteas to face The Reds in a five-match-spar ahead of the World Cup to be organised in Sri Lanka.


Bangladesh’s August tour to Zimbabwe for two Tests, three ODIs and two T20s has since been postponed to a date yet to be agreed on with Zimbabwe proposing October while Bangladesh can only accommodate it next year, giving their domestic league smooth running time.


Zimbabwe Cricket managing director Ozias Bvute confirmed the development yesterday, adding that they were already working on the modalities with the involved nations’ boards.


“The Bangladesh Cricket Board requested that the Tigers join us in the World Cup warm up matches that we will have with South Africa,” said Bvute. “We wrote to South Africa who have since indicated that they have no problem with it being a triangular series. We are currently discussing the modalities with both nations. It should be noted, however, that these are not official matches but practice matches that we are all using to prepare for the World Cup,” Bvute added.


Zimbabwe and South Africa play each other every year in different formats of the game as Zimbabwe continues rehabilitation into big time cricket.



Zimbabwe is in the same World Cup group as South Africa together with Sri Lanka while Bangladesh is pooled with Pakistan and New Zealand.


Allan Butcher’s team will be involved in the first match of the tournament when they clash with the hosts on September 18.


The two teams in each of the four groups will qualify for the Super Eight and Zimbabwe’s task is to get at least one victory to stand a chance.


After a disappointing end to a season that started well, Zimbabwe will seek to build a competent side that can restore lost reputation.


They have been boosted by the return of some of their top performers who were absent from the New Zealand tour, who include Chris Mpofu, Craig Ervine and Vusi Sibanda who was excluded for disciplinary reasons.

Doesn't matter really. The stats won't count, but we are getting a good preparation against a quality opposition which is better than doing nothing or playing a few ODIs against Ireland IMO.

It does matter mate. If it was official matches, then we could have watched it online/tv. Now, who's gonna telecast practice matches ? And when 3 international teams are playing abiding by ICC rules, then what's the problem calling it 'official series' rather than practice matches ?

And i aint complaining about the series, i am only questioning the status of games.

Supersports still might cover it you never know. I'm sure we will figure out one way or another to get updates. I mean this is BC after all, we'll figure out a way.

Why not make them official matches? Getting that status should not be too hard to gain.

I guess for that you need to arrange a better management. I mean you have to look after lots of things. They thought it won't be financially beneficial for them with the sponsors and other stuffs. Now they need not to worry and no one will complain if a goat enters the field for eating grass.

Who decides whether a match is official or not?

Why dont they come and tour us instead. WC will be held in SL and practicing in BD will help both Zim and SA to get familiar with South Asian Condition. That would have been better than practicing in ZIM.
Afterall preparing for the WC is the sole purpose of this triseries.
