Domestic T20 league starts in Harare

Story by Raynald Ngwarati

THE 2024 Domestic T20 league started this Sunday with county cricket side Durham bullying Megamarket Mountaineers while Midwest Rhinos got the better of Southern Rocks.

Old Hararians Sports Club and Harare Sports Club played host to the 2024 Domestic T20 league season opening day as United Kingdom based Durham and Midwest Rhinos secured winning starts in their respective games.

While the bulk of the attention was on how the Mountaineers would fare against Durham, it was the Southern Rocks and Mid West Rhinos who got the ball rolling in the league with Rhinos grinding the Rocks in the Super over.

Veteran batsman Cephas Zhuwao who top scored during the 2023 campaign immediately got his account ticking for the current campaign with a whooping 86 runs, however his efforts were in vain as Rocks kicked off their campaign with a loss.

“We’ll get there, it’s all about those small things, especially today there’s a time that we didn’t bat well, at the middle overs and the fielding also cost us because we were fumbling the ball and not taking it cleanly,” he said.

With the inclusion of Durham, Zhuwao’s stay on the top scorer’s chat only lasted for a couple of hours as Alexander Lees scored 95 runs in Durham’s 53 run win over Mountaineers.

The Mountaineers struggled at Harare Sports Club as Durham shot up to the summit of the six-team league on the opening day of play.
