How does the Uganda Cricket have such a well designed and functioning website, yet a full member ZC can't even update their site since April.

I was mesmerised. I ended up spendig about 15 minutes just browsing their site and seeing how they are doing things. Comparing it us and how far we have fallen.

For reference, when you google the Zim cricket website it just says, Zimbabwe Cricket - Under Maintenance. Then you click on that link and about 3 minutes you just get a splash page of the Womens team celebrating being Africa T20 champs. That took place in May. May!! It's been 6 months and they can't get a decent site operating.

I'm sure someone with very basic knowledge could run a much better site. ZC are probably paying someone big money for it too.

There’s no good will in Zimbabwe nobody does anything for free and rightly so, they’ve been burned too many times before.

ZC are stupid they obviously keep hiring some under qualified digital media guys who don’t know how to build or maintain a website or to run their social media platforms.

I could do it easily for them for probably a fraction of the price they’re paying some dumb arse to sit there and drop a tweet every few days 🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️🤦🏽‍♂️

A non functioning website and non existent media people and bought and paid for pet sports journalists is an entirely deliberate act. It would further highlight what pitifully little ZC do.
The very occasional things that they do they just phone one of their pets and it gets made into a story that surpasses the Boks winning the World Cup, the “journalist” gets his chicken nuggets and coke and he has to wait patiently for about 6 months until he gets told to write another story or we play cricket again.

So looks like Uganda won most of the games on their tour? That Takashinga squad seemed quite strong with a lot of A team playets (Kunje, Kamunhukamwe, etc).
