Zimbabwe’s top provincial cricket sides will battle for honours in the 2020/21 domestic T20 competition.
The tournament gets underway at Harare Sports Club on Saturday where it will be held behind closed doors, with no fans permitted in the grounds, as part of the bio-secure bubble protocols put in place to minimise the risk of Covid-19 infection.
The first day of the competition will see Mountaineers and Eagles clashing in the morning fixture.
Tuskers and Rhinos will then lock horns in the afternoon game.
On Sunday, Eagles will take on Tuskers, in the first game of the day, before Rhinos entertain Southern Rocks, in the afternoon.
Rocks and Tuskers will then meet before Rhinos face Mountaineers, in the last double-header, at Harare Sports Club on Monday. Action will then move across the city to Old Hararians Sports Club, on Tuesday, where Eagles and Rhinos will clash in the morning. Rocks will then take on Mountaineers in the afternoon.
The T20 tournament will end on Thursday, with the third-place play-off taking place first before the top two sides meet, in the final, at Old Hararians Sports Club.
The morning matches are scheduled to start at 10am and the afternoon games at 2pm.
Tuskers were crowned tournament winners in 2019 having finished top of the round-robin points table and will be looking to recover from their Logan cup form where they won no matches.
