Scotland captain Berrington said after his side’s defeat: “It’s very disappointing not to get over the line.

“A few more runs on that surface would have given us a chance to increase the pressure. It was disappointing that we didn’t have the pace to bat.

“We can be really proud of some performances. Some of the cricket we played was very good. We can definitely take a lot of good things forward.” HARARE, Zimbabwe – When aeronautical engineer Gerald Makota quit his job in Abu Dhabi for another in Ireland last January, he was excited by the prospect of traveling to England to watch his country Zimbabwe at the 2019 Cricket World Cup.

Makota, 32, grew up playing cricket in his hometown of Mutare in Zimbabwe. He booked the trip even before the qualifying round was over.

Zimbabwe have played in every ICC Cup since 1983 and nothing has changed in Makota.

But when the World Cup began in England at the end of May, Zimbabwe’s failure to qualify was a disappointing memory for Makota.

“I scrapped all my plans to stay in England when we didn’t score those three crucial runs against UAE [in the qualifiers],” Makota told Al Jazeera in Shannon, Ireland.

“It will be the first time in my life not to see Zimbabwe in the World Cup, it’s a bitter pill. Failure to qualify is a huge blow to our country’s game. Huge financial reward for participating. Stop playing Zimbabwe oxygen.”

Prior to this tournament in England, Zimbabwe had qualified for the World Cup directly from the 1999 edition as a Test nation.

But with this year’s competition reduced to 10 teams, a play-off system has been introduced that includes the bottom and second-tier teams in international cricket.

Goalkeeper Gary Brent, who played for Zimbabwe at the 2007 World Cup, said the failure to qualify was a “huge disappointment” but the defeat could only make the country stronger. Brent’s old friend Brian Strang, however, did not share this hope.

“Shall we dine at the high table,” asked Strang. “I guess not going to the World Cup has to do with karma. It’s hard to pay off when the goal is wrong. It seems like a missed goal and a World Cup loss were inevitable.”

There are fears that qualifying for the World Cup could have a negative impact on public interest and the growth of cricket in Zimbabwe. In last year’s qualifiers, Zimbabwe played well until an unprecedented crowd saw a fierce match against the United Arab Emirates.

Almost all games in the four stadiums in Harare and Bulawayo, even those with neutral teams, received a packed house.

Ali Shah, who has represented Zimbabwe in three World Cups, salary issues and a weak club cricket system are the main reasons behind the turmoil.

“You cannot play cricket at the highest level without a good club cricket system. When cricket died in Zimbabwe, the national team died. When the administration abandoned club cricket, cricket took off in this country,” Shah said.

“Money is not transferred to develop the game. We are talking about increasing the number of players, but only a handful of cricketers in the national team are paid. How do you continue the game when there is nothing coming from the game? ?

Zimbabwe’s qualifier against the West Indies at the Harare Sports Club, in which the hosts could have wrapped up the qualifiers with one game to spare, was watched by around 10,000 spectators.

For the winning game in the UAE, nearly 17,000 people, the largest crowd ever seen at a cricket match in the country, gathered at the venue. A confused and raucous home crowd – who expected nothing more than to clinch a ticket to the World Cup – watched in horror as Zimbabwe lost by three runs.

Zimbabwean fan Geoff Guwakuwa said, “The loss against the lowly team UAE added to the injuries.” “Watching your team compete on the biggest stage is every cricket fan’s dream. It will be hard to enjoy the tournament.”

Zimbabwe, which has often had serious financial problems and had to resort to a financing scheme devised by the ICC to ease its cash situation, would be poorer without the wind of the World Cup.

Asked to predict how the game will be played in the country, ZC Tavengwa president ZC Tavengwa also revealed how Zimbabwe is on the brink of bankruptcy due to injury at the World Cup. Mukhlani declined to comment after several calls and messages.

Zimbabwe’s victory over India and South Africa in the 1999 World Cup were largely responsible for increasing the game’s popularity among the country’s predominantly black population.

Although Streak said the reduced number of World Cup teams will affect the game at the international level, the failure to qualify will have a major impact on young cricketers.
