Australia Denies Zimbabwe Cricket’s Proposal Of Playing One-Off Test



Key Highlights

  • Australia denies the proposal made by cricket board of Zimbabwe for at least a One-off test
  • The denial is nothing but due to the busy schedule the Australian team is having prior to the WC
  • The Zimbabwe’s cricket board executive Tavengwa Mukhulani already confirmed that the Aussie team will not be available due to extremely busy schedule

The Australian team denies the proposal made by the cricket board of Zimbabwe for at least a One-off test or a T20Is. The denial came due to the bustling schedule the Australian team is having this year including the big one i.e., the world cup (T20). Zimbabwe’s only request to the Australian was to broaden their visit for up to 3 match ODI series but the due to hectic schedule the Australian management had to turn down the offer. Will add to your surprise that since past 20 years, there hasn’t been a single match between the two teams. The Cricket Australia while speaking to ESPNCricinfo said,

“The Australian team will have a very busy 12-18 months, so the plan is for only ODIs at this point,”

In a similar fashion, the two team were very near to face each other in 2020 but due to the pandemic, the matches were cancelled and till date nothing positive.

The Zimbabwe’s cricket board executive Tavengwa Mukhulani also confirmed the news about the Aussie team’s denial due to their extremely busy schedule they would not be able to play against Zimbabwe. While speaking with ESPNCricinfo team, Mr. Mukhulani said,

“We don’t play many Tests, so if there is an opportunity to play against Australia it would be good for our team.

“A Test match against Australia in their conditions would be great development for our players, who would really look forward to the challenge.”

He further added,

“We are confident either a one-off Test or the T20Is can be arranged, so we have a bigger tour but it is subject to their scheduling,”

Australia has already issued their fixtures and which showcases that the team is going to play against the Sri Lankan team in June and July consisting of two tests, 5 ODI’s and three T20Is and once after this series finishes, the Australian team will be playing against the New Zealand team in August and September. In September only the Aussies will be facing the Men in Blue which is the Indian team in a T20 series.

But keeping things aside the provided fixture by Australian team has already made their intentions clear that the team is serious about the T20 World cup which is going to take place in the month of November because when you notice the teams with which the Aussies are going to play against, are all the main contenders in the WC and which the Australian team would not compromise with.
