Zim cricket season cancelled with no champions declared


STAFF REPORTER


Zimbabwe cricket season has been cancelled with immediate effect due to the deadly coronavirus with no champions declared.


The season was supposed to be completed end of last month. But had been suspended in March following President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s decision to suspend all sporting activities in the country as part of efforts to curb the spread of the virus which has ravaged economies across the globe.


Leaders in the Logan Cup, Eagles, and Tuskers who were leading the Pro50 Championship table have been denied the titles. Eagles were five points ahead of of Mountaineers with 28 points from six games. Mountaineers had 23 points from five games.


In the Pro50 Championship, Tuskers had 11 points from five games while Mountaineers had nine points from the same number of games.
“We were looking forward to the conclusion of our season, but seeing what
is happening in our country and elsewhere across the world, we realised it
was not realistic for us to expect our competitions to resume anytime soon,”
Zimbabwe Cricket director of cricket Hamilton Masakadza said in a statement on Monday.


He added: “ZC therefore decided to void the 2019/20 season with immediate effect
and we will not declare a winner or award any of the trophies as teams had
not played an equal number of games when the season was curtailed.”
