Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) says it is focusing on boosting its game development as well as domestic and international cricket structures. This came out during its first virtual annual general meeting in a first for the organisation as delegates from all provinces participated in the meeting via an online platform.
“The difficulties we faced – and conquered – in 2019/20 could only prepare us for a better future.” Said ZC acting managing director Givemore Makoni. Despite facing a tough year, ZC emerged in a much stronger position having managed to pay off its US$27 million debts. “Perhaps the biggest irony of our lifetime, the very same horrible year saw us making huge strides towards making ZC debt-free.” ZC chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani said.
“Having ended as badly as it started, the period under review has without any doubt been ZC’s annus horribilis – from the game teetering on the brink of collapse to a global health crisis.”
After players and technical support staff members undergo Covid-19 tests ahead of the official start of training last week, results returned as negative, giving the entire squad called up for training the green light to get down to business.
