Harare: Frustrated with the financial crisis, Zimbabwean batsman Ryan Burl has requested the sponsorship of the national team by posting a picture of torn shoes, drawing attention to the crumbling of the country’s cricket. Burl’s appeal worked.

Ryan Burl gets sponsor

Puma, one of the top footwear manufacturers, reacted to this and promised sponsorship. When some cricket boards are earning millions of dollars from sponsorship, Burl tweeted, “Is there any possibility that we will get a sponsor so that we don’t have to stick our shoes after every series”.

Puma gave confidence

Reacting to Burley’s tweet, Puma Cricket wrote on the social media platform, ‘The time has come to throw the glue, we will help you.’

The 27-year-old left-handed middle-order batsman has played three Tests, 18 ODIs and 25 T20 Internationals for Zimbabwe. He has tweeted a picture of his shoes, glue and some accessories to fix it.

Emotional when getting sponsor

Zimbabwe, which achieved ODI international status before the World Cup 1983, got Test status in 1992, but the team has been battling at the international level for some time. Berl tweeted after this and said, ‘I am very proud to tell that I am joining the Puma team. This has happened because of all you fans, who supported me in the last 24 hours. I am grateful to you all. Thanks to Puma.

Zimbabwe cricket going through ups and downs

The country has failed to produce players such as the Flower brothers Andy and Grant, Alastair Campbell, Dave Haughton, Heath Streak and Neil Johnson. These players achieved considerable success representing Zimbabwe. The International Cricket Council suspended the country’s cricket board in 2019 due to government intervention and also barred the team from participating in the T20 World Cup qualifier last year. However, Zimbabwe was later restored. Pakistan recently won the T20 series 2–1 in Zimbabwe apart from sweeping the two-Test series.
