Should be raining for the next week or so and we dont have those super soakers or whatever they are called, so expect many delayed matches because of wet outfields. Good for the country, bad for cricket

Zimbabwe's players have not been provided with any reason for the two Logan Cup matches that were supposed to begin on Thursday not getting underway as scheduled. The first-class domestic tournament started on December 10, after a delay to the start of the season while ZC waited for an ICC disbursement following its reinstatement as a Full Member in October.

The competition is in its fifth round and has already been disrupted once. Last week's match between Rhinos and Tuskers, due to take place at Takashinga Cricket Clun, did not happen.

ESPNcricinfo understands that the players believe there are insufficient funds to play the matches, taking into account the costs of match fees and ground preparation. An insider confirmed the players have not received any communication about the rescheduling of fixtures. ZC did not respond to a request for comment.

However, a national team camp is taking place in Harare in preparation for the two-Test series against Sri Lanka, which takes place later this month. The provisional squad includes 25 players including nine uncapped players. Among them are Brian Mudzinganyama and Kevin Kasuza, who are third and fourth on the Logan Cup run charts and Charlton Tshuma, William Mashinge and Victor Nyauchi who are sixth, eighth and ninth on the wicket charts respectively. The familiar names of Brendan Taylor, Kyle Jarvis, Tendai Chatara and Donald Tiripano are also in training with the national side.

The series against Sri Lanka starts in 10 days' time and will be Sean Williams' first as Zimbabwe's captain. Zimbabwe have not played a Test since November 2018, when they drew a series in Bangladesh. Since then, they failed to qualify for the 2019 50-overs World Cup and were unable to participate in the qualification for this year's T20 World Cup because they were sanctioned by the ICC for government interference in the game. The ICC has since reopened the door to Zimbabwe and provided a much-needed financial life-blood. ZC is dependent on the ICC's money, especially to ensure the continuation of domestic cricket.

There’s no requirement to provide a reason for postponement or cancellation. “Theirs is not to reason why, theirs is but to do or die.”
I can hazard a guess why funds have run out :lol: :lol:

Watch all the bigwigs go first class and stay first class to SA if the u19 lads win any games. There will be some cash for that. Those Grand and Teasers hookers will be busy long time :lol:

You can’t cancel cricket if you think it might rain in a week’s time, bud. :lol:

Especially when the squads are 30 strong and probably only 4 guys are getting any bucks and the rest are not getting what they’re supposed to. :lol:
