Logan Cup resumes next week – Zim Cricket

Zimbabwe Cricket has announced the resumption of the country’s top cricket league, the Logan Cup, next week Tuesday.

In a statement it says:

Contrary to some media reports, all is set for the second round of Zimbabwe’s domestic first-class competition, the Logan Cup, which gets underway this coming Tuesday.

Harare Metropolitan Eagles will host Midlands Rhinos at Harare Sports Club while Manicaland Mountaineers will face Bulawayo Metropolitan Tuskers at Mutare Sports Club in fixtures scheduled for 17-20 January 2017.

All the teams are raring to go after an unfortunate misunderstanding over provincial salaries had resulted in the disruption of the first-round match between Tuskers and Rhinos at Queens Sports Club in December.

ZC in saying that salaries were now up to date put the ‘misunderstanding’ down to provinces not submitting  ‘submitted their paperwork in time for the Zimbabwe Cricket secretariat to include them on the December payroll together with the other players on central contracts and non-playing staff.’

ZC also confirmed the 40-over Zimbabwe Premier League matches set for Tuesday:

  • Muzvezve Tigers v Rainbow (Old Hararians)
  • Southern Lions v Takashinga Patriots 2 (Takashinga Sports Club)
  • Inkatha Lions v Eastern Lions (Masvingo Sports Club)
  • Amakhosi v Takashinga Patriots 1 (Kwekwe Sports Club)
