The Zimbabwe Cricket managing director was in Kwekwe on Wednesday, for meetings on the sidelines of the second day’s play in the Logan Cup match between Mid-West Rhinos and Mashonaland Eagles.
Mr Wilfred Mukondiwa was shown around Kwekwe Sports Club – the headquarters of Mid-West Rhinos – by chief executive officer Kenyon Ziehl and franchise management committee chairman Ken Connelly.
They discussed the plans for the ground and its potential for the future of cricket in Zimbabwe. Mr Mukondiwa also saw the excellent progress that is being made on the second field, which is to be shared with the adjoining Goldridge College.
Mid-West Rhinos hope to host international matches again in the near future, even if these are only warm-up matches against touring teams.
Kwekwe is ideally situated for this as it is halfway between Harare and Bulawayo and so would be an ideal stopping place when visiting teams travel between the two main centres.
Kwekwe Sports Club hosted a One-Day International match between Zimbabwe and Kenya in 2002.
