Zimbabwe to tour Singapore

After the tri-series in Bangladesh, Zimbabwe will tour Singapore for a T20I tri-series that also includes Nepal.

The two sides will be making preparations for the ICC T20 World Cup Global Qualifier which Zimbabwe has been kicked out of after suspension.

Before that the Chevrons will have taken part in a T20I tri-series that also includes Afghanistan.

That tour will be the last by captain Hamilton Masakadza who retires soon after. He will not be part of the Singapore one.

The Singapore series is some seriously needed game time as Zimbabwe tries to reintegrate itself into the ICC playing community while awaiting a decision on their reinstatement on 8 October 2019

I guess this was probably arranged before Zim were kicked out of the T20 World Cup qualifiers.

Or we really have fallen in heap in that invitations from lowly associates are good enough for Zim as long as they pay.

I imagine the touring admin party will be extra large on this junket to Singapore. Lots of good shopping there, has always been a favourite destination for the corrupt elite of Zimbabwe.

Interesting that Hamilton won’t be on that tour, I guess Tawengwa Mukuhlani will be taking his seat on the plane ??

Well they will be going to pay their respects to the Mugabe family and throw in some shopping so I’m anticipating a fleet of Dubai based aircraft being hired for millions of dollars. I doubt there will be a politician left in Zimbabwe.

With those outs we are a decent chance of giving Singapore a T20 I win.

Jakielmania! Getting Jakiel in the team has without a doubt been the longest selection campaign in ZCF history.
