Banc-ABC Under-13 Cricket Week gets underway

The Zimbabwe Cricket Council (ZCC) has announced the schedule for the annual Banc-ABC under-13 cricket week.

The Six Team comprises 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.

The tournament will be held at Prince Edward School, hosting a total of 12 matches over four days from December 5 to 8.

There is no outright winner in the tournament as this is part of Zimbabwe Cricket’s strategy of providing opportunities for exposure to developing under-13 teams and to provide a platform for potential national under-13 national players to perform and compete.

The Head of Media and Communications at Zimbabwe Cricket, Shingai Rhuhwaya-Koti, lauded the annual tournament, highlighting the significance of the event to the nation.

“This is the first step in every Zimbabwean player’s path to the national team," he said in a statement.

"The majority of the national team players we have today took the same path and we will continue to improve the competitiveness of our junior cricket and create more opportunities for development in Zimbabwe."
