Zimbabwe Cricket announced the schedule for the annual Banc-ABC under-13 cricket week. Six team which comprise of five franchise under-13 teams and a Development Select XI made up of players from Matabeleland Tuskers and Mashonaland Eagles will participate in the tournament.
Mountaineers (142/6) beat Mashonaland Eagles (115) by 27 runs.
An exciting T20 final between the two former champions ended in a rather narrow victory for the first holders of the trophy, Mountaineers. At the halfway stage it looked as if the home team and last season’s champions, Mashonaland Eagles, would triumph, as Mountaineers turned in an indifferent batting performance, and recent high scores in this tournament, especially by the home side, suggested that 143 was too small a target.
