Re: 2019/20 Domestic Cricket Season - Logan Cup, Pro50, Twenty20

Sponsoring a University league in Zimbabwe might actually be a better investment for ZC as well than rural concrete pitches or club cricket.There are about 17 of them

Re: 2019/20 Domestic Cricket Season - Logan Cup, Pro50, Twenty20

Well if we cant disband our FC system then we need to have a full time academy side there in partnership with a University. Academies are not about results anyway. They will get slaughtered but if at least 2 kid rise above the rest every year out of 15 we will eventually have a decent team in just 5...

Re: 2019/20 Domestic Cricket Season - Logan Cup, Pro50, Twenty20

To be honest 70% of domestic matches here dont even deserve FC status. Always rained off and national team players never pitch up. How Chari has played more FC games than 33 year old senior players will always baffle me. The medium term solution here is to fully incorporate into the SA domestic syst...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

Even if that’s true it’s better spent in their hands rather than Makoni who’s on over 20K a month, which is proven. How’d do you even know this TapsC? Word of mouth or you’ve seen something similar to what I put in the other thread ? I was the first person to bring this up.I heard this from 2 diffe...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

To be honest I would rather that kind of money go to actual cricket players than admin so I am not mad about it. I think the question should be are we better off attracting 5 quality youngsters than those 2? 25k a month would convince any of those kids we are always talking about. Even Byrom or Tom ...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

I’m fairly sure he’s on about 10k a month and Jarvis will be on a bit less. What I’m curious about is how tax works and whether it’s legal to receive forex. Those Tax vultures will be all over them. Their take home in real terms will be a lot less than that. The brown envelope players won’t be far ...

Re: 2019/20 Domestic Cricket Season - Logan Cup, Pro50, Twenty20

The short to medium term solution is to find players who play in other domestic leagues. That is the only way out. I think sometimes we overestimate ourselves. We have never had a strong domestic setup. In fact if you look back you will find that Zimbabwe's strongest team had 2 very good imports (Go...

Re: [MATCH THREAD] Tri Series Game I Zim v BD

This is why I want Williams to be the next captain. He is the right mix of emotional and somebody who doesnt like losing. Imagine dropping a catch off Williams' bowling and he is the captain? You know you are in for a tough time. Unfortunately for way too long Hami has looked like that employee who ...

Re: [MATCH THREAD] Tri Series Game I Zim v BD

It all comes down to mentality. That winning mentality. Hami doesnt have it unfortunately. And yes Zimbos I dont like Ervine after the UAE defeat last year. Im sorry i just cant unsee it. That game literally changed our destiny. Almosy everything that has happened in the last 18 months was because o...

Re: Warm Up Game : Zimbabwe XI V/s BCB XI

I agree with Rajput mindset is everything. How many times have we seen new guys walk in and play a fearless brand of cricket then suddenly look like they cant score a boundary or take a wicket to save their lives after a few months with these senior players. Remember how PJ and Mavuta played against...
