HARARE (AFP) - Coach Alan Butcher is convinced Zimbabwe will do themselves justice on their return to Test cricket after an enforced six year absence against Bangladesh here on Thursday. This one off Test is followed by Pakistans visit in September for another one off Test, three one day internationals and two Twenty20s, with New Zealand lined up for later in the year. Many Zimbabwe cricket followers suggest that their team is either not yet capable of competing at the required level - or never will be. There is therefore an understandable air of anxiety hanging over Harare. But Butcher struck an optimistic note, declaring: We have made very considerable progress in the last six months and I am convinced we will do well. We are good and ready. Zimbabwes chairman of selectors and former Test captain Alister Campbell has asked that people judge his sides performances on the basis of all three tours, rather than after this one Test against bottom-rated Bangladesh. But he also warned: The proof will be in the pudding this week. It is not only the Zimbabwe players that are on trial, but also the ZimCricket managing director Ozias Bvute and chairman Peter Chingoka, who have pushed for a return to Test cricket for at least 15 months since Sri Lanka and India played an ODI triangular here. Zimbabwe administrators however suggest that the introduction almost two years ago of a franchised five-province first class league has provided a competitive edge.
