Re: Pro 50 2018/19: R2: Eagles v Rhinos & (?) Tuskers v Mountaineers

Elton with the match winning performance. The Rhinos had 10 guys who could hold a bat. Surprised they lost. Good to see a competitive game. Well at least on paper

Tari still captain. Another duck for him. Still opening as well. There must be a plan for him. I guess maybe he also realised the opening spot is the most available spot . It will be interesting to see if Burl also bats uptop

Re: How good are we at test cricket?

Flat wickets must be banned in test cricket. Thats one thing thats been killing the game. As a fan you dont want to see your team bowling for 2 days. Create pitches where something is always happening and it will attract fans. Games where 2 wickets fall the whole day create no atmosphere at all. Thi...

Re: How good are we at test cricket?

Its crazy to actually think we won an away test yet we wont be in the test league. For me personally I think the test league should really be split into 2 proper divisions. India SA Australia and England are clearly stronger than everybody else. I would add Pakistan and NZ to them. Everybody else I ...

Test Win versus Series Win

Been thinking about the 2 major victories we have had over the last 18 months. What was better the test win or the Sri Lanka heist? Cant make my mind up. We were definitely playing better in Sri Lanka but the test victory was extremely difficult as well. The test win edges it maybe for me because 1 ...

Re: Pro 50 2018/19: R1: Eagles v Tuskers & Mountaineers v Rhinos

I think Streak tried Tari uptop this year in the UAE but Mujeeb and Rashid got him out. He might be the solution although I think he is better in the middle order when the ball is a bit soft and there are a few gaps. His strike rotation is quite good.

Taibu Launches Bill Flower Academy in Harare

https://www.theindependent.co.zw/2018/12/07/in-honour-of-a-stalwart/ Very good read about all the effort that went on in the background in the 90s. I wonder if we still have dedicated parents like that. A lot of parents dont realize that sports careers are usually not overnight things. The greatest ...

Re: Logan Cup 2018: R1: Eagles v Tuskers & Mountaineers v Rhinos

Cant believe they didnt finish the game in Harare. It had stopped raining heavily in that area by 3pm. It was more of a flash storm but still overcast.

Re: Ireland Announces Bumper Home Season In 2019

They fought for so long for test status but they barely play. Whats the point of the only test being against Afghanistan? How many times did they play each other in the intercontinental cup? I guess test cricket is just too expensive to host. I think Kriterion's idea of a test triseries every year w...
