So nice to see club cricket in Zimbabwe again. It looks like the hooligans running the show are placing a lot of emphasis on club cricket.

There's certainly lot of positivity around at the moment. I guess we'll soon see if it's misplaced or not. Hopefully it continues.

"One of the billionaires is Mr Mulk who is coming to launch T10 cricket."

:lol:
He is actually going to be in Zim this week :lol:
I suspect they trying to convince him to build the vic falls stadium. They saying the T10 tournament might be held in Zim this year actually. Interesting

The Vic Falls stadium I'm not too sure about. It's a bad idea I think but if somebody else pays for it then what do we lose? Maybe they think the big teams would love a holiday/tour. I don't know what the exact angle is but I suspect they want it done before the 2027 world cup. That is probably their target. Sports tourism. You could convince a few big teams to set up base there

What they probably haven't thought about is that the conditions there might be so different compared to what our guys used to. Both teams would be playing in foreign conditions :lol:

Well a Vic falls Stadium is the single most stupid idea conceivable.

It’s closely followed by a dodgy Indian T10 betting league, which is surely the second worst possible conceivable idea.

The very idea of a stadium there makes me go for calming walks and settle down with a foot long Bob Marley.
It far surpasses the idea of the Chitungwiza Aquatics centre in stupidity and monumental waste of resources.

Unfortunately it's all about who gets the kick-backs.
A summer game in Vic Falls and they'll be casevacing 22 players to a blast freezer, aside from anything else.
We need to urgently upgrade our existing facilities and build indoor centres.

The T10 tournament sounds like it is happening anyway. ED is supporting it personally. God help us.

The Indian fella wants to build a 'world class cricket stadium in either Harare or Victoria Falls' according to the media. Let's hope sense prevails and it's Harare. But even then, with that sort of money you could instead just make sports club world class, revitalise a dozen club and school grounds and probably build an indoor centre or two as well.

It's a vanity project. Shame.

Looks like Vigne 2nd league is continuing, usual fixtures tomorrow. 1st League possibly on hiatus until the NPL is over?
