Re: Uganda Tour of Zimbabwe

It would have been more for Uganda's benefit. They used this tour as a decent warm up for their challenge league B tournament (effectively Divison 3) currently going on in Oman. They have just beaten Jersey in their opening game.

Re: 2020 ZIM fixtures

Not many clubs will pay £200. The top ones in the ECB premier leagues maybe, but most will be below that. However, you can certainly make it up to a grand if your're smart. Do some coaching (kids love an overseas player from my experience) and bit of bar work and your're there. Regards the fixtures ...

Re: [Match Thread] Zim v NL: ODI 2

It's a disappointing loss for sure, but Netherlands, like some other associates are on the way up, and indeed catching up. Remember, they will be featuring in the new 13 team ODI league from next year which includes the big boys. They qualified for this by coming above Scotland, UAE , Nepal and othe...

Re: Future tour rumours

On the Cricket Ireland website the games are still listed. Interestingly these are due to be played at Bready and Stormont, which is Northern Irealnd and thus part of the UK. Long time since a Zimbabwe cricket team played in the UK. If it is cancelled that will be scandalous....This is a potentially...

Re: [ODI 4] Zimbabwe v UAE

Great that Zim won 4-0. I have that world cup qualifyer vs UAE on record on my TV. The whole game. I still can't bring myself to watch it.

Re: 99 ODI stumpings so far...

You're right googly, that stat about stumpings doesn't tell the whole story. Andy Flower was still a decent keeper. Something that's overlooked due to his heroics with the bat, plus he had to skipper at times,plus deal with the general sh*t that is Zimbabwe Cricket. I think Taibu was probably the be...

Re: Future tour rumours

That FTP is a disgrace. When was the last time Zimbabwe actually played a series which exactly corresponed with the FTP and at the specified time? Don't know whether it's ZC , other boards or the ICC, but either way it's shocking the way things are changed or cancelled. Following Zim is a test of ch...

Re: [ODI 3] Zimbabwe v UAE

Completely agree. The coverage has been really good. You just have to watch it via facebook or youtube instead of a TV. Very poor form by the Afghans.

Re: Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

He’s in an excellent cricket environment at Loughborough , almost as good as a county set up. The bowler who dismissed him was Darren Stevens, a proper county veteran if ever there was one. He would have been brisk 20 years ago, but he’s over 40 now.

Re: Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

Nick Welch made 5 for Loughborough MCCU, who took an unexpected 1 run lead in their game against Kent. He opened and was out for 5, just before the close. He didn't get a chance to bat in the 2nd innings as rain halted Kents 2nd innings and that was that.
