Sri Lanka tour to Zimbabwe

Post by Train Driver »

Has anyone heard any more about this tour ?

I remember, back in august, that the tour was supposed to take place in november but have not seen anything else since. It certainly doesn't appear on future tours as listed on cricinfo.

Is it still happening or has it been quietly forgotten about ?

ZC did publish a planned itinerary:

Code: Select all

13-16 November  Four-day match          Harare Sports Club
19 November     One-day tour match      Harare Sports Club
21 November     1st ODI                 Harare Sports Club
23 November     2nd ODI                 Harare Sports Club
25 November     3rd ODI                 Harare Sports Club
28 November     4th ODI                 Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo
30 November     5th ODI                 Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo
...but as you say, nothing has been confirmed since then. It's an FTP-mandated tour, though, so Sri Lanka don't get much say in it - they'll have to tour unless ZC agree to defer it.

I found this article on cricinfo tonight.

http://www.cricinfo.com/tri-kenya/conte ... 74990.html

It mentions flying back straight into a 5 ODI series against Sri Lanka, looks hopeful then .......

Sri Lanka squad announced. A few changes from the side Zim faced in Canada.

I can't say that i was very confident that this tour would happen.

Great to be proved wrong :D
