SPORTS CORRESPONDENT

Although Premier Soccer League (PSL) chief executive Kenny Ndebele could not confirm whether the last four of the tournament would be played in Harare, he said the decision to announce the dates and venues of the tournament lay with the league.

He said this would be done in consultation with the sponsors, Delta Beverages, and their broadcasters, SuperSport.

“I can’t say they will be held in Harare or in Hwange because we have not consulted with the sponsors and our broadcasters. The decision to announce venues and dates of the tournament is done by the league in consultation with the sponsors and the broadcasters. You will be notified of the actual dates and venues,” Ndebele said.

According to the draw, conducted live for the first time on SuperSport by Chibuku general manager Kudakwashe Chimwanda, PSL competitions manager Elisha Mandireva and Miss Gweru pageant models in Gweru on Monday, FC Platinum were drawn to face army side Black Rhinos who mauled Triangle 4-0 in the last quarter-final clash at Ascot Stadium.

It had been thought FC Platinum, by virtue of being the first team to be pulled out of the hat, would be at home in the first semi-final as well as Highlanders who were the second team to be picked.

Highlanders progressed to the semi-finals of the tournament after thumping How Mine 3-1 at Hartsfield on Sunday while FC Platinum reached the last four of the tournament after booting out troubled Harare giants Caps United when they handed them a 1-0 defeat via an own goal by Caps United defender George Nyirenda.

Harare City beat Chiredzi 2-1 to advance to the semis with Osborne Mukuradare and Martin Vengesayi scoring a goal each.
