The Zimbabwe U-19 cricket team is expected back home tomorrow having secured an 11th place at the World Cup, amid debate regarding development structures in the country.
When the Young Chevrons left for the World Cup, Head Coach Stephen Mangongo was that his charges would hold their own in New Zealand following months of intense preparation.
There were high hopes that Zimbabwe would stir some upsets against the big sides but after falling short against India, Australia and Sri-Lanka, cricket analyst, Brian Goredema said there is need for a relook into the structure of junior cricket.
The Young Chevrons got off to a flying start with a victory over Papua New Guinea but there appeared to be a gulf in class when they met Australia and India in encounters they lost convincingly.
Despite overcoming Namibia in the plate quarter-finals Zimbabwe went on to lose to Sri-Lanka before finishing in 11th position after a win over Canada on Sunday.
The team is expected back home this Tuesday evening as the cricket fraternity debates on a way forward.
