Apart from Ireland tour, which may happen towards the end of August, what happened to the 3 ODIs against the Netherlands that were postponed last year? Part of WSL so I guess they'll have to play it sometime.
No mention of this yet. ZC gave a briefing on upcoming series last week (see previous page of this thread). So we're looking at Feb 2022 onwards for the Ned series. Same for India ODIs too and all the other remaining bits of the super league.
India is covering Sri Lanka leg at present which was postponed on 2020. At present, India touring Zimbabwe doesnt like to happen as BCCI are going to complete all the domestic season matches that was postponed, May be India will tour Zimbabwe in 2022 early Jan or Feb after South Africa Tour.

Thanks for the update mate! Quite hopeful of the Ireland series going ahead, I genuinely feel Zimbabwe can pull of series wins there.

Touring party for Ireland scheduled to depart Zim on August 19th pending SRC Covid approval. Apparently the fixtures are being moved away from Belfast and to grounds in the Republic instead.

Wow! Great to know that the tour goes ahead. Hopefully Govt approval should not be a problem as it is an away tour anyways.

Yep! (Also it enables Zim to spend 10 days in the Republic (Clontarf) before moving North for the scheduled ODIs at Stormont (Zim on UK Red List, but not Republic Red List I believe).

Should be an exciting tour. Flying out on the 19th!

Both sides still keen for it, but the delayed Ireland series means it's touch and go for Scotland weather/conditions/pitches being suitable etc. Hopefully it goes ahead.

Zimbabwe should target clean sweep in Ireland & Netherlands in Super League and earn as many points they can to avoid qualifiers

6 wins, 60 points and will be at n.o 3 or 4 in the chart

a mouthwatering opportunity if tour goes as per expectation
