Cricket is becoming exciting with each passing day & the latest T10 format is the icing on the cake. After the success of the Abu Dhabi T10 League, Zimbabwe is all set to introduce its T10 league called Zim Afro T10 League. The new T10 league will be played from June 20 to July 29 in Harare.
Now trying his luck in the T20 format is India’s most loved Bollywood actor, Sanjay Dutt who has brought stakes in the franchise Harare Hurricanes. Dutt will co-own the franchise with Sir Sohan Roy, Founder, Chairman & CEO of Aries Group Companies. This will be the first kind of partnership activity in Cricket.

The Zim Afro T10 is the first franchise cricket in Zimbabwe & the tournament will have five privately owned teams fighting for the top prize. The other four teams are Durban Qalandars, Cape Town Samp Army, Bulawayo Braves, and the Joburg Lions. The player’s draft for the league will be conducted on July 2 at a grand ceremony in Harare.
Zimbabwe Cricket Managing Director Mr. Givemore Makoni said, “To see some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry throw their weight behind the Zim Afro T10 gives me immense pleasure, and tells me that the tournament is being well received. Now, all that is left is that the Harare Hurricanes put in a brilliant showing in the tournament next month.”
“Cricket is like a religion in India, and as one of the biggest nations in the sport, I feel it is our duty to take the game to every corner of the world. Zimbabwe has a rich history in the sport and to associate with that and help fans have a great time is something that truly gives me joy. I am looking forward to the Harare Hurricanes doing really well at the Zim Afro T10,” Sanjay Dutt, Co-Owner, of Harare Hurricanes, said.
