Any news on the Vigne Cup? If that doesn't start soon it probably points to there being a cash flow crisis.
If Vigne Cup runs concurrently with Logan Cup then there's probably going to be a shortage of venues and possibly players. If they run these events close to Xmas you're going to see many pulled hamstrings. The Xmas break is a big issue here, people like and need to go home. Zimbabwe traditionally downs tools from the 14th of December to at least the 4th of January.

I want to know the makeup of the squads, to see if there’s any additional players who will make the cut.
I’m rooting for Brad Evans and Tari to be firmly in the plans for a franchise. Also keen to see if Nick Welch and Ben Curran get a gig. It’ll dramatically improve the overall standard of the competition

Sounds like the 3rd of December is the likely date, apparently what John said about money is true. I am sure BT and Ervine will make sure they visit their lodges over xmas.

Forgot that the national team players have to self isolate for 2 weeks on their return to Zim.
