Mountaineers eye Logan Cup

Crack Cricket franchise, The Mountaineers, have put top priority on winning the Logan Cup.

The Mutare-based Mountaineers have remained unbeaten in this premier domestic first-class cricket competition. Matabeleland Tuskers are the defending champions, having won the cup last year.

The Mountain Goats are currently on top of the Logan Cup log, having won convincingly with 96 runs against Kwekwe-based MidWest Rhinos last week. They amassed 16 points in three games, with one draw – in their game against Masvingo’s Southern Rocks – being the only dent in their campaign.

This weekend they take on a tricky Eagles side in Harare, in what will wrap-up the first round of the domestic league. Mountaineers coach, Garry Brent, said he was happy with their series play and looked forward to a good ending to the campaign.

“For our series matches, the boys are doing exceptionally well and I am confident that we will bring the Logan Cup home this year if we continue with the top form,” he said. “But I am worried about our Pro50 performance, where we have to work more on our batting. It is something we can work on and rectify, so I am sure we will improve as the season progresses.”

The Mountain Goats will play their second home game against Tuskers on April 6 and that will kick-start the second round of the domestic league.
