Apparently Takashinga have submitted a complaint about the Old Georgians pitch - as have the umpires. The claim is that Rangers ‘sabotaged’ the match.

The claim is that Raza is a doubt for the first India T20 after getting injured ‘due to the pitch’.
A lot of runs made on a pitch that is no good.

Raza left one that hit him on the elbow.
Why would they deliberately prepare a dangerous pitch when they have to face Chivanga and Muzarabani on the same deck? That would be stupidity at its finest. Matt Campbell wore a good one as well.
Most pitches in Zim are below average anyway, spicy in the morning and flatten out later.
Raza may have hurt himself running around appealing coercing umpires into shit decisions. There's one of our big problems. These umpires are shite. In fairness to them they gave Takashinga some shit decisions as well.
They have a national curator- he should inspect the pitches and condemn the shit ones BEFORE the game. We wouldn't play many games.
I really hope Takashinga management don't turn this into something it isn't.
All eyes on how they manage their internal games between Takas 1, 2 and Gladiators to engineer a league win.

Prize money will be dictated by who wins. 15k if its Takas and 500 if its another team :lol:

Seems to be a very poor pitch at OG though... Raza hit badly first ball. Not sure if this will go the distance.
I did mention this at the time.

Looked like there was a dodgy spot back of a length at one end. Some genuinely dangerous deliveries coming from there.

Nearly a huge shock as strugglers Scorpions nearly beat league leaders Gladiators today. Nkosilathi Nungu with an incredible 8/51 but Gladiators just about managed to come out on top to stay at the top of the table.

Good to see his form finally pick up. Hopefully he carries it into the new domestic season.
