The Africa T20 Cup Tournament is here, and Tarisai Musakanda has been made the captain for the Zimbabwe Select side, deputised by Ryan Murray.
As exciting as Twenty20 cricket is, the onus out on Tarisai Musakanda and Ryan Murray to steer the team to success is pretty much palpable.
The T20 Tournament is run by Cricket South Africa, and has been expanded to 20 teams, fully maximising the competitive edge this will bring. It will take place in he four coastal venues of Oudtshoorn, East London, Pietermaritzburg and Paarl.
From 14-16 September, the preliminary round will be held, and then the finals between September 23 and 24.
Zimbabwe Cricket has a vast array of talented players, and this is the good opportunity for some of the players to prove their worth. This Africa T20 Cup must serve as a window for increasing competition within Zimbabwean cricket.
Under Tarisai Musakanda, this can be possible. Over the years, he has shown that he has the potential to be an extremely excellent player, and the performances he exhibited during the T20 series with Australia and Pakistan were quite impressive. So when it comes to Zimbabwean T20 cricket, Tarisai Musakanda has all the capability to deliver. We believe he can lead well. Deputised by Murray, they can do better.
Zimbabwe Select: Tarisai Musakanda (captain), Ryan Murray (vice-captain), Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, Timycen Maruma, Cephas Zhuwao, Tinotenda Mutombodzi, Neville Madziva, Mohammad Faraz Akram, Rugare Magarira, Richmond Mutumbami (wicketkeeper), Brandon Mavuta, Richard Ngarava, Brian Chari
