Any update on Afghanistan series? I find recently Afghans have started avoiding Zimbabwe, they think of themselves as a big team and then when they get bashed up by the biggies brutally they come to Zimbabwe for fixtures.

I have no sympathy for Netherlands also, they keep avoiding Zimbabwe always, I don't know why.

Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and Pakistan have been most supportive of Zim, even Ireland.
Bro, cricket is no more a game of sympathy. Build a superior team, defeat top opposition, make your rate high that has been the order of cricket.

Zimbabwe has to increase their rate by winning games against top teams whenever they gets a chance
Yes I do agree on this. If Zimbabwe perform well then they will surely get more fixtures. I hope they do.

Zimbabwe still have WSL fixtures against India, Australia, Netherlands, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka which are remaining and we have no clue when they will be played. Except may be Afghans in December.

Afghanistan in December 21
Sri Lanka in January 22
Netherlands in April 22
Australia late November 22

Just leaves India to fit in.

Not sure what has happened to the two supposed 'A' series home and away with Pakistan. Potentially scrapped. Ramiz Raja hates us, not sure why.

Thanks mate! India tour this year was even advertised on Sony but then Covid meant it couldn't happen. They may play next yr same time, perhaps.

I've read on a reliable website that Zimbabwe will be hosting the T20 WC Qualifier (2nd leg) in June/July. The first leg will be in Feb in Oman.

Yeah hopefully. Cut off date for fixtures is March 2023 so still plenty of time to get the India series in.

Yeah we really are the world champions of hosting at the moment. Two successive world cup qualifiers, a T20 world cup qualifier, a womens world cup qualifier and the world cup itself in 2027!

So theres two separate qualifiers for the T20 - presumably that means we will be in the 2nd one and at home. The ICC really want us to qualify for something dont they :lol:

April-May 22 apparently. Multi-format but as ever the Test is unlikely.

Will the Afghan series be a one of Test or a series? Hopefully it's a 2 match series.

I would be extremely surprised if there are any Tests at all. Unlikely currently.

😂 Yeah, Zimbabwe hosting just about everything. Good thing though and I think it also brings in some revenue for ZC.
