Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has delayed the Logan Cup matches due to start this Saturday by one day following the confirmation of the funeral arrangements for the late Shepherd Makunura.

Makunura, who at the time of his passing on Thursday was doubling up as Fielding Coach with the Zimbabwe Senior Men’s National Team and Head Coach at provincial side Southern Rocks, will be laid to rest at Warren Hills in Harare on Saturday morning.

As a result, ZC took the decision to delay by 24 hours the Logan Cup fixtures originally pencilled in to start on Saturday in order to allow players, officials and other cricket stakeholders to attend the funeral.

This means the four-day matches pitting Southern Rocks against Mega Market Mountaineers at Harare Sports Club and Tuskers versus Eagles at Old Hararians Sports Club are now only getting underway on Sunday, 18 December 2022.

Those games will see the teams observing a moment of silence while the players and officials will also wear black armbands as a mark of respect for the late Makunura.
