Zimbabwe Cricket Chief Selector Givemore Makoni expresses his disappointment after his side failed to reach the Super 10 stage of the ICC World Twenty20.

In part due to the limited preparation that the side had, they struggled, losing their opening game against Ireland, which meant that subsequent wins over the Netherlands and the United Arab Emirates were not enough.

He says that they should be beating teams like Ireland but concedes the team were always up against it given the lead up to the tournament, where player strikes meant that the players had few opportunities to play competitive cricket.
