Two tournaments for Zambia

Andrew McGlashan

Zambia have been appointed two host two international tournaments later this year according to the Sunday Post. The country is set to hold the 2008 central and southern African eight nations' Under-17 cricket tournament and the Africa Cricket Cup.

Saidi Malama, the Zambia cricket development manager, said they will be searching for talent ahead of the U-17 event. "We have a provisional team in place but we will also go out in schools across the country to recruit Under-17 players who will play in this tournament."

Andrew began his cricket writing as a freelance covering Lancashire during 2004 when they were relegated in the County Championship. In fact, they were top of the table when he began reporting on them but things went dramatically downhill. He likes to let people know that he is a supporter of county cricket, a fact his colleagues will testify to and bemoan in equal quantities.
