Organisers upbeat over Windies fixture

West Indies … will play three-day tour match against Zimbabwe A at the Bulawayo Athletic Club.

BULAWAYO, Zimbabwe, CMC – Cricket officials here were busy putting the finishing touches on preparations in anticipation of West Indies’ arrival for their three-day match against Zimbabwe starting next Sunday.

The venue will host the lone warm-up game for the two-Test series between the Caribbean side and Zimbabwe which runs from October 21 to November 2, and is scheduled for the nearby Queens Sports Club.

“Facilities are ready. We are bringing more machinery from Harare to make sure our grounds are top notch,” Bulawayo Metropolitan Cricket Association administrator, Nicholas Singo, said.

“Renovations are being carried out at the BAC changing rooms just to spruce up the place.”

The machinery is to ensure swift mopping up operations in the event of rain.

Invitations have also been issued to nearby schools in a move aimed at giving young students the opportunity to watch international cricket.

West Indies left the Caribbean on Monday for Zimbabwe where they will play their first Test series in the African nation in 14 years. They have also never lost a Test to the Zimbabweans, winning six of eight encounters in the past.

Singo said organisers were anxiously looking forward to hosting the former World champions.

“We are very much prepared for West Indies. They arrive at midday today from South Africa. The board and management will be there to meet the team.”
