Zimbabwe A to tour Namibia
Zimbabwe will help out Namibia with much-needed preparation for April’s ICC World Cup Qualifiers by sending their A side there at the end of this month.
Zimbabwe A will play the full Namibia side in three one-day matches between February 28 and March 4 in Windhoek. A single Twenty20 could also be slotted on the whistle-stop tour.
The ICC World Cup Qualifiers get underway on April 1 in South Africa. Apart from giving Namibia a helping hand the Zimbabweans are also looking at exposing their second-string cricketers to increased competitive games in a bid to widen their selection pool.
