Club Cricket 2021-22 (Vigne Cup etc)

Post by secretzimbo »

    The domestic club season kicks off this weekend with the return of the Bulawayo Met 1st League. Queens, BAC, Amakhosi and Poly return.

    Amakhosi Vs Queens @ Emakhandeni Ground
    Byo Poly Vs BAC @ MacDonald Ground

    I’d expect most Tuskers players to be playing as it’s pre-season.

    Meanwhile if anyone has any updates about anything happening elsewhere in the country at club level this season, especially the Vigne Cup, please let us know here. So many people involved on the ground lurk and read this forum - please post guys :D info appreciated!

    Pretty sure these games didn't happen in the end despite being scheduled. Season seems to be delayed.

    ^ No idea whats going on with the above fixtures and apparently they didn't happen.

    Anyway, elsewhere my mate at Kadoma says there is Mashonaland West League cricket happening this weekend with;

    Kadoma Vs Tabatana @ Kadoma Sports Club.


    And Bulawayo are having another attempt at starting their season with;

    QSC Vs Amakhosi @ Queen's
    BAC Vs Byo Poly @ BAC

    I hear there are as many as 20 teams signed up for the Vigne Cup this year across two divisions (if they all turn up). This is, frankly, completely unsustainable with only a few grounds available.
