Chevrons aim for consolation victory

By Anashe Murombedzi

THE Zimbabwe National Cricket Team, the Chevrons will be hoping to redeem lost pride when they take on Afghanistan in the third and final T20 encounter at Harare Sports Club this Tuesday.

Coach Lalchant Rajput has a tough task ahead of him with questions now being asked on whether he is the right man in charge of the Zimbabwe National Cricket Team.

It has come to a point where winning is now alien to the Chevrons with a string of poor results in their World Cup qualifying campaign leaving more questions than answers.

After losing by 21 runs in the second T20 match this Sunday, Zimbabwe have already surrendered the series to the tourists who have an unassailable 2-nil.

The poor show in the T2O series comes after a series whitewash in the One Day International encounters against Afghanistan.

This left them routed at the bottom of the Super League table with 35 points in 15 matches, denting their chances of qualifying for the World Cup.

While Blessing Muzarabani and Ryan Burl have provided the silver lining in a dark cloud, their efforts have been reduced to nothing by a poor team show.

The two rivals will meet in a dead rubber at Harare Sports Club this Tuesday, with Zimbabwe playing for nothing except to redeem lost pride.
