Zimbabwe’s SOS to India and Pakistan

Express News Service

Kolkata, July 16: Racial bias in selections, wrangles over latching onto vital players, the widening gulf between administrators and the experienced players — Zimbabwean cricket has its share of adversity over the last few years. Yet, the chief of the national cricket body would have us believe that things are looking up.

While the Zimbabwe Cricket union (ZCU) boss Peter Chingoka was here to attend the felicitation ceremony of Jagmohan Dalmiya, he made his intentions clear that the beleaguered African nation was not just making steady strides towards “achieving more quality”, it was the helping hand of countries like India and Pakistan that could make all the difference.


Explaining the development programme in the domestic level on which Zimbabwean cricket today relies heavily for climbing back to normalcy, Chingoka asserted that he was looking forward to alliances with India to develop the game back home.

“Given that we have been going through a tough time for the last few years, it is this development programme that we concentrating on very hard to bring back the lost interest in the game. And for that, we are eagerly looking to seek the help of the top academy in India (the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore),” Chingoka said.
