Another quiet week in Zimbabwe cricket, except at Mutare, where Nigel Fleming reports on a serious incident that requires strength and direction from the administrators.  Our national players prepare to go to India, without actually knowing who will be in the team.

Besides our main contributions on club news and provincial cricket, we include the promised interview with Guy Whittall on the Board XIís matches against Easterns in South Africa.  Guy also includes his views on the state of Zimbabwe cricket at present. [More]


Taking time out: Guy Whittall
All-rounder and former vice-captain Guy Whittall, after scoring few runs in the home series against South Africa and England, found himself dropped from a touring party for the first time as Zimbabwe went to Sharjah, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka without him. 

In the meantime, he has been making good runs for the Zimbabwe Board XI and should certainly be in the running to tour India.  He talks to CricInfo about his situation, and also about the Board XI matches against Easterns B in Boksburg, South Africa. [More]
