ZC should include 8 ZPL teams with 4 franchises, followed by proper distribution of players, to make the Pro 50 Tournament more Entertaining

As at 3pm on friday ZPL games were going ahead on saturday. A number of comps had cancelled club cricket due to this. 3.30pm all ZPL fixtures for the weekend cancelled. Meaning another week of players going without match practice. ZPL might be a farce but it beats net work especially when 80% of the national and A squads were scheduled to turn out. Players want to play cricket. Let them play. On a side note, all backend/admin staff earning over $500 per month at ZC having their salaries cut from April moving forward

Rainbow once again collapsed under the pressure to a demoralsing defeat chasing a gettable 204 against the Southern Lions. The lions were bolstered by a sparkling 90 from Richmond Mutumbambi who rescued the side from a trick 8 for 3 to 190 for 8 thanks. Mutumbami found able partners in Chibaba and Chisoro. Rainbow choked in the chase from 65 for 1 after 12 to 78 to 106 thanks to a 6 for from Chisoro who once again this year terrorised the much vaunted Rainbow batting line to make them look like boozers.

A sad day for my Rainbow side

Do yourself a favour.
Look up super Rugby results for Australia when they had three teams in the tournament.

Then look at results with 4 teams.

Then look at current results with 5 teams.

Ill give you a hint;
They are planning to cut a franchise due to talent dilution.

I've figured it out. Just stick a "Southern" in front of the team name and Mutumbami becomes a star.
I guess he'd have been an automatic selection in the national team 70 years ago :shock:
