In a path breaking decision regarding Cricketing in Vidarbha, Vidarbha Cricket Association and Zimbabwe Cricket have entered into a partnership whereby the two will embark on an exchange program concerning each other’s teams, coaches, analysts and undertake activities of mutual interest.
Earlier the Head of Cricket Operations of Zimbabwe Mr.Givemore Makoni had visited VCA and had a fruitful discussion with the President Mr.Anand Jaiswal whereat this partnership was discussed and finalized.
Mr.Givemore was very much impressed with the infrastructure available at VCA and said that such facilities will definitely help his cricketers in honing their skills, especially playing spin bowling.
As a prelude to this partnership, the Zimbabwe Under-19 Team will be visiting Nagpur to play Ten one day matches with VCA Under-19 and Under-23 Teams from 31st August’17 to 20th September’17. This visit of the Under-19 team is a preparation for the forthcoming Under-19 World Cup. Thereafter it is proposed that the Zimbabwe Emerging Academy Team will visit Nagpur followed by their Women’s Team and somewhere next year their Senior Team. VCA Teams will also visit Zimbabwe thereafter in 2018.
BCCI has also approved of this partnership and have appreciated this initiative of VCA
This is a wonderful opportunity for VCA to grow its cricket profile and present a good competition to its cricketers said the President Mr.Anand Jaiswal.
