At a domestic level, inter-provincial cricket has been played for the Logan Cup since 1903-04, but it is only since Zimbabwe attained Test status that it has been possible to organise it as a first-class competition. Since the late 1960s Mashonaland - basically Harare - has had at times almost a monopoly of the top players, making true inter-provincial competition difficult.
In 2005-06 the competition did not take place, it being impossible to stage against a backdrop of internal strife - both inside the game and the country as a whole. It was relaunched in 2006-07 with the traditional provinces replaced by new bodies, set up by the board in an attempt to quell internal dissent. Kenya were invited to take part on a one-off basis.
