Bit of a blast from the past from Roy Kaia in the blink and you miss it 50 over tournament in Zimbabwe.

Kaia made his solitary ODI apperance against Pakistan in 2015 - but looked pretty tidy today as he got 4-30 for the Mountaineers versus Mashonaland. Kaia has now got 3 or more wickets in his last 5 innings.

Tinashe Kamunhukamwe - remember the name.

Has only played three ODIs but looks a class outfit. Got 81 from 56 balls today in a DLS affected game where his Mashonaland side beat the MidWest Rhinos. Could be a tasty budget T20 option.

The lad also made a half century in his last game so could be one to watch when Zim go to Bangladesh.

Wesley Madhevere looks like a talent.

After being the highest Zimbabwean wicket taker in the Under 19 World Cup with 10 wickets - finishing joint 5th overall - he then joins up with Mashonaland to take 4-28 to help them beat the Rangers. He coupled the fourfer with a half century.

Zim have a number of good bowlers coming through.

Saw Ainsley Ndlovu did well today as his team, Matebaland, beat the MidWest Rhinos with him getting 4-36.

The Rhinos only got to 112 in pursuit of 161. With the win Matebland take top place with only one round of games to play.

Random Zimbabwean Cricketer of the Day goes to the marvellously named Remembrance Nyathi who is 109* in the Mid West Rhino's Logan Cup game vs Rangers.

Tendai Chisoro appears to have dropped off the scene a bit for Zimbabwean cricket but is still looking impressive in the domestic scene. He got 3-50 off 20 overs today to continue the Mid West Rhinos spell of success against Rangers.

Tafara Chingwara got an odd fivefer today. He got the last three wickets for the Mid West Rhinos and then two of the first three when Rangers were asked to follow on.

Was an abhorrent game for Rangers as they were all out for just 89 in the follow on.
