The Zimbabwe national cricket team’s performance in the just-ended triangular series with Australia and South Africa could lure sponsors to support the game and particularly the national team.
After bankrolling Zimbabwe’s Man of the Series award for the triangular that was won by hat-trick hero Prosper Utseya who received a US$1 000 cheque for his efforts, Zimgold expressed interest in sponsoring the game at a higher scale in future.
Utseya took five wickets as Zimbabwe shocked super powers Australia.
Zimgold parent company Pure Oil business manager Vishal Warrialani said that his company is intent on supporting the cricket team in future.
“We want to continue to recognise and appreciate great achievements such as the one by the national cricket team,” said Warrialani. “We would want to improve our relationship with cricket as long as we also get support. They are a talented group and beating Australia is no mean achievement. On an individual level, Utseya did well, hat-tricks are rare and he also went on to take five wickets in that match before guiding the team to a win with the bat.”
