I don't think they are going ahead. Plan is the Logan Cup to restart on Monday though.

It's a total farce. I think Googly's doomsday predictions will come to fruition soon. Will the BT/Masakadza cohort is still kicking around we'll be competitive, but after that we're just going to fall off a cliff and there's no coming back.

They are completely destroying the game , they will realise once it’s to late .
The Zimbabwe Cricket team have found Ebola in one of their members, but they're not concerned because they have also found Ebatsmen and Efielda!

All matches to be played in the capital as Bulawayo accomodation is too pricey 🙈

ZC are hiding behind the chaos. They earn USD and it should be a lot easier for them, not harder.
These are not doomsday predictions. Watch what unfolds over the next few weeks in zim. The country is flat broke and the people are restless.

Apparantly it costs $9000 to accomdate players for a Logan Cup match.

Cheaper to base it in the capital and put the players in academy housing.

That’s only because someone is pocketing half the cash. $70 gets you a decent bed and breakfast times 15 people (half of those have got friends/relatives or accommodation here anyway) times 4 days.
Divide that by 3.5 (it’s 5 today and climbing!) to get a USD rate that ZC have to swap and it’s cheap as chips.
People must stop buying into their nonsense.

At most it’s going to cost usd $1500 including transport and food. Where’s the other $7500 usd going?
