Also listed on SuperCricket, so I'm fairly sure it is on - just no news of it yet. For previous SAA Challenge matches it's sometimes been quite late in the day before the scorecards have appeared, so I'm exercising some patience at the moment... :)

Some news is better than nothing... Provinces Squad for both this match, and next week's against Griqualand West:
Blessing Mahwire (captain), Regis Chakabva (wicket-keeper), Graeme Cremer, Terrence Duffin, Trevor Garwe, Tafadzwa Kamungozi, Friday Kasteni, Admire Manyumwa, Tinotenda Mawoyo, Bonaparte Mujuru, Taurai Muzarabani, Stephen Nyamuzinga, Edward Rainsford, Prosper Tsvanhu.

Duffin in for Keegan Meth, who is down with malaria. Extensive scouring of the web still hasn't turned up a day one scorecard, though...

Tell me about it. Nothing on CricInfo, Cricket SA, SuperSport, ZC, or Free State Cricket Union websites, or any Bloemfontein newspapers that I've tracked websites for. And people used to complain that matches in Zim used to take place in complete secrecy... :evil:

What do you mean? Matches in Zimbabwe are played in complete secrecy :mrgreen:
But it's getting better, I don't think we will have the same scorecard problems with Faithwear and the Logan Cup this year. In fact, I think we will have online streams of Faithwear... okay I'm being a bit too optimistic now :P

Online streams of the Faithwear tournament would be nice, but perhaps rather optimistic. I can never even find online streams for ODIs from Zimbabwe. I didn't see a single delivery of the recent Zim - WI series.

Hehe, it was tongue-in-cheek. I'd be mighty surprised if a camera crew have ever been at a domestic match, and unless the quality of competition ever matches say, Australia's one-day league, I doubt that will ever change.

As far the West Indies series goes, none of us saw it (bar zimdan who went to the Bulawayo match I believe). However, if an Asian team is involved (Pak, Ind or Bang.... not sure about SL) then chances of a stream skyrocket. WI and Zim aren't high profile enough for people to create streams for.
