DUBAI: Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC), in association with T10 Global Sports, has unveiled the country’s eagerly awaited franchise-based T10 tournament that is aiming to feature cricket stars from across the world.

The inaugural edition of the new competition, known as the Zim Afro T10, will be played in August this year, with six privately-owned teams involved.
The participating franchises, player auction dates, fixtures and other details will be announced in due course. This is the latest T10 tournament to be established by T10 Global Sports, the same company behind the Abu Dhabi T10 in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and the Lanka 10 in Sri Lanka.
Announcing the launch of the Zim Afro T10 at a media conference held in Harare on Friday, ZC Chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani said he was confident the league will provide great entertainment for the fans, top-level competition for the players and vast exposure for the investors.
“We are thrilled to unveil our own franchise-based T10 league, a powerful format that we believe is exactly what our changing, fast-paced world needs right now,” Mr Mukuhlani said.
T Ten Global Sports Founder and Chairman Mr Nawab Shaji Ul Mulk – the UAE-based investor behind the state-of-the-art Zim Cyber-City real estate project that is being developed in Mount Hampden on the outskirts of Harare – said he was excited to be bringing the magic of T10 cricket to Zimbabwe.
“As our association with cricket continues to grow, we are delighted to bring to Zimbabwe an exciting format that will not only advance the reach, attractiveness and growth of the sport but will also present a massive opportunity for private investment into the franchises,” Mr Mulk said.
