THE decision by the Government to allow the Chevrons to travel to Pakistan has been hailed as a huge sign that international sport could be on its way back in Zimbabwe.

Zimbabwe Cricket chairman, Tavengwa Mukuhlani, was ecstatic yesterday after getting the green-light to resume international assignments.

Domestic cricket, which has also been in limbo, is set to resume next week.

The joy was also felt across within the football family.

ZIFA president, Felton Kamambo, said the move by the Government provided hope for local and international football could also be on the horizon.

The Government banned domestic sport, and barred all national teams from touring, under the national Covid-19 lockdown measures to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

ZIFA wants domestic football to return as well as for the Warriors to be given permission to travel for international friendly matches next month.

They want to prepare for the 2021 AFCON qualifiers against Algeria in November.

Zimbabwe Cricket are now certain of ending a seven-month period of inactivity after the Sports Commission gave them the green-light to tour Pakistan.

The Chevrons are expected to travel to Pakistan next month for a limited-overs series.
