Re: 2020 ZIM fixtures

And Cricket Australia has used the winter months to to promote 'A' tours. In July 2006 there was the Top End series with Pakistan & India "A"s held in Cairns & Darwin. In 2009 we hosted Pakistan A in June/July, playing at Townsville. In June 2010 we hosted Sri Lanka A in Townsville & The Allan Borde...

Re: Bangladesh in India 2019: Test series

Kriterion_BD, I applaud you for creating the conversation about team selections. In my years of observing team's selection policy, I know it's a conversation which may never end & one could repeat the same point over & over without getting any resolve. And teams from the sub continent seem to excel ...

Re: How has your association with ZCF helped you?

No question the ZCF has helped me by being a great leveller to me. Here I am, whinging & moaning about the state of affairs in Australia, then I read Googly's & other Zimbabwean forumites' posts about the state of affairs in Zimbabwe. I have a job, my kids have jobs & you can pretty much guarantee m...

Re: Gary Ballance

Ok, hold the phone, here. Regardless of time frames between international appearances, I'm pretty certain there is intention to whom one is committed to. So Ballance is Zimbabwean born. He debuts for Yorkshire in 2008- one FC match. He has three FC matches for Yorks in 2010. Then it's FC cricket Eng...

Re: South Africa Watch

Will be interesting to see what the fallout is. This is a tour where Faf looks as though he's lost the dressing room. And it seems to be an unhappy dressing room. I'm trying not to read too much about the Rabada/de Kock incident in the 2nd test but it wasn't a good look. The morale reminded me of th...

Re: India at home, Can anyone Beat them??

If Australia are going to keep serving up Shield pitches like the one at Junction Oval the other day, no wonder we struggle abroad. Zampa got carted & thank goodness Lloyd Pope didn't play. He's a leggie of whom much is hoped. England are an enigma. Certain series( Ashes 05, India 12/13, SL last yea...

Re: Statement on ZC agents on the forum.

If chesterton is from Shoreditch, can we be "sure" he is going to be "ditched" from the forum?
I make no apologies for the attempted Dad joke.
No correspondence will be entered into.

Re: Forum memories thread

African American is the polite and inoffensive way of saying people from that heritage. Stop living in the Stone Age.USA has nothing to do with it. I can't let this go. Chesterton, are you telling me it is impolite & offensive to regard a person as Zimbabwean of Shona heritage. I have to refer them ...

Re: Forum memories thread

A good memory for me happened quite recently. When chesterton asked about the quota rule in the South African domestic comp, he mentioned teams requiring a certain number of African Americans. I thought when one lived in Africa, you were from the continent of Africa. Where did the American connectio...

Re: SHIT! Zimbabwe lost to Singapore

Its hard to fathom how you write some good stuff and then nonsense in the same paragraph, it’s like several people are living inside your head, all fighting for the keyboard. No, it's not several people. It's the million chimpanzees fighting to type a novel. It's the law of probability something sen...
