Is this league worth seriously? For a third-forth tier league, it would have benefited from having 4 or so provincial under 20 teams, than being a low-stakes social league. The link secretzimbo put up, has a team scoring 58 all out runs in a 50 over game. Cricket is now big business, we need serious cricketers in these leagues
Mate it's only the local Bulawayo amateur league - most of the players are there for a laugh and a drink, whilst a few others use it as a genuine audition for the Tuskers squad. Interesting to keep tabs on it as the very top performers do usually find themselves in the Tuskers squads eventually. And when the Logan has a break you will see a bunch of the franchise players playing in it too.

Mostly just waiting for the Harare league to start. That is good standard - often a similar standard to franchise when everyone turns up.
Thats cool, good for the lads out there enjoying the game!. I guess what we might need is are high calibre youth interprovincial tournaments to identify talent that might have missed out on Zim U19 WC teams

This "identifying talent" thing is waste of time. Firstly isn't that what our newly appointed talent scouts are supposed to be doing? If they cant come up with some mystery guy living in the bush somewhere do they get fired for not doing their jobs or does it mean nobody has been overlooked and there isn't actually any previously unidentified talent and they actually have two meaningless jobs.

You can't have "high caliber" youth tournaments because that number of "high caliber" players just doesn't exist.
If someone is good enough and hungry enough he will surely just pitch up and try out for one of the 20 paper clubs out there, take some wickets, bang some runs and move up, that's how it's supposed to work. If you can't make one of 20 club sides Jarvis ain't gonna help you.

If Jarvis wants to earn his keep all he has to do is knock on young Erasmus' door and get him bowling line and length at 135 plus and deliver him to the U19 squad before Xmas, like a belated present, or is the mandate to ignore some people?

It's a new appointment so give em time. Hopefully in an ideal world there will be a progress report feedback regarding this endeavour after a period of time say 6 months but this is ZC we are talking about 😂

Not many scorecards around, but cricket in Bulawayo is continuing in both leagues.

BAC beat QSC yesterday at home, with Sean Williams playing for BAC in a low-scoring thriller. Nice to see him back. Shame we aren't getting crichq scorecards though.

The Byo second division is in progress too with 8 clubs.

The Midlands season has started with 6 clubs, and I believe Kwekwe are unbeaten after two rounds. Again no scorecards sadly.

Sounds like Vigne Cup 1st and 2nd leagues are starting later this month.

I see a Brandon James in the scorecard. Is this the same Brandon James, son of Wayne James that was in the u19 world cup squad but he couldn't get a match.
