With the pre-draft announcement, the five teams participating in the Zim Afro T10 cricket tournament have revealed their top players ahead of the player draft scheduled for July 2. Five franchises, Harare Hurricanes, Joburg Buffaloes, Durban Qalandars, Bulawayo Braves, and Cape Town Samp Army, are preparing to vie for the T10 championship in this inaugural edition.

The tournament will begin on July 20, 2023, with the grand finale lined up for July 29, 2023. All the matches in the series will be played in Zimbabwe’s capital city, Harare.

In the build-up to the player draft, each team has announced its pre-draft marquee players.

Moreover, the franchises are required to select one player from the emerging talent category identified through a nationwide talent hunt.

In an exciting development for the Zim Afro T10 cricket tournament, franchises have been given the opportunity to pre-sign up to four top international players. These players will be selected and announced before the draft begins, adding further anticipation to this buzzing event.
