NPL T20 Blast roars into life as top six battle for silverware

The inaugural NPL T20 Blast is set to get underway this Wednesday, with three games scheduled for the first matchday.

The participating teams qualified for this top-flight club T20 competition by virtue of a top-six finish in the just-ended National Premier League (NPL).


Action scheduled for Wednesday will see the newly crowned NPL champions, Gladiators, meeting BAC at Kwekwe Sports Club, while Old Hararians Sports Club will host two matches pitting Takashinga Patriots 2 versus Westside and Lions against Takashinga Patriots 1.


On Friday, BAC will face Takashinga Patriots 2 at Kwekwe Sports Club, with Westside at home to Takashinga Patriots 1 at Mutare Sports Club, while Gladiators will entertain Lions at Old Hararians.


There will be three more rounds scheduled for Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday, before the top two sides meet in the NPL T20 Blast final pencilled in for next Saturday.


All the round-robin matches are set to start at 11am local time.


Spectators who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will be permitted to watch the games in person free of charge.


Selected NPL T20 Blast matches will be live-streamed on Zimbabwe Cricket’s YouTube channel and website, while ball-by-ball coverage will also be available on the Zimbabwe Cricket mobile app.
