Surely it would be useful for those guys to have a competitive FC hit out (or bowl) ahead of the Test against South Africa.
I wouldn't like to see the team get rotated around as I think Zimbabwe need consistency in their team selection. I'd play my strongest side for both of those games as they will serve as a decent warm up for the South Africa Test match.

Although, if Andy Waller doesn't know his best 11 yet then yeah why not but consistency in team selection is needed for Zimbabwe to improve...They also need a good run of overseas tours but that's a different story...

Tino hit a hundred in UK and injured himself in the process? Bad news.

And what's with all these accidents to Zimbabwean cricketers? Isn't it happening all too often? Mbeki Mabuza with that horrendous one a few years ago, and even last month Nyumbu and Mamhiyo was it? And Vitori now. And just a year ago Chakabva was stabbed badly in SA. Tafadzwa Madondo also died in a bike accident. Eerie.

That's a shame, was looking forward to seeing Vitori bowl. I wonder who will open the batting with Sibanda in the one off Test match against South Africa if Mawoyo is out.

Good question, probably Regis or Raza

Apparently Utseya is also a doubt now with a hand injury.

DSTV apparently got the rights for the match but I cannot find anything on future TV guides which suggests that the game will be televised.

Do you have a source for the DSTV rights thing?
