Zimbabwe will host the Netherlands for three ODI series, which is part of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup Super League, in Harare later this month, Zimbabwe Cricket announced on Monday (6).
“The matches are scheduled for 21, 23 and 25 March and will all be played at Harare Sports Club, starting at 9.30am local time.” Zimbabwe Cricket said in an official release.
Although both teams are out of contention for direct qualification for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India, this series in Harare remains important, according to the Zimbabwe skipper Craig Ervine.
“I think the tour is very important for a couple of reasons,” Zimbabwe Captain said.
“One being it’s a chance to look at some options ahead of the ICC Men’s World Cup Qualifier on home soil and what sort of team our selectors are looking at.
“Two, it’s an opportunity to keep the momentum going which has brought the crowds back to Harare Sports Club and which we want to carry through to the qualifiers.
“What we want to see again is the support we had during the 2018 qualifiers and we can only get that support by continuously winning games.”
