Zimbabwe cricketer Ryan Burl's post on Twitter summed up the situation of their cricket board. Burl took to social media on Saturday (May 22) to seek sponsorship for the national team by posting a photo of worn-out shoes.
Burl wrote that they need a sponsor so the players don't have to glue their shoes after every series. He attached a picture of the shoe with the heartbreaking post.
"Any chance we can get a sponsor so we don’t have to glue our shoes back after every series @newbalance @NewBalance_SA @NBCricket @ICAssociation," he tweeted.
The fans were shocked to see the poor condition of Zimbabwe cricket. They used to be one of the better sides in the early 2000s, but currently, Zimbabwe is financially struggling.
Recently, Pakistan toured Zimbabwe for 3 T20Is and 2 Test matches. The visitors won the T20I series by 2-1 and the Test series by 2-0.
