Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 1st ODI

The batting lineup is wrong. I agree with that. The opening slots are giving us real headaches. I think we just need to try different people until we get it right. Starting with PJ then maybe swap Raza and Mire. For me Mire has been living on borrowed time. Zhuwao has no technique but Mire has a fla...

Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 1st ODI

That period where Raza and Ervine werent scoring hurt us badly. Like 8 overs of nothing. That was so poor. Raza looked out of form today. That was a very strange knock by his standards. Craig is struggling. He had like 9 lives in 48 balls. I think he needs a break. Problem is everybody on the bench(...

Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 1st ODI

The Hami runout was also suicidal. He was in good touch and had settled. This is why I like having an explosive opener uptop. If it works it just allows the other batsman to face 3 quiet overs and get in without any scoreboard pressure. Hami was in.

Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 1st ODI

Game was lost in the last 10 overs we bowled. They should have never scored more than 220.

Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh v Zimbabwe 1st ODI

Those boundary ropes need to be moved back a bit in the next game. Semi-decent connections were going all the way. Felt like we were playing a t20

Re: [ Poll ] Should Zimbabwe become a South African franchise?

Definitely a no from me but I would want an A team to play in the domestic season there and an academy team to play in the 3 day competition or the varsity league(cheaper than 5 months in England) It might actually be a better plan to outsource all our cricketers than have anything solid here. Our s...

Re: Best All Rounder Squad Zimbabwe

Chigumbura? You're having a laugh mate. Sean Ervine, Paul Strang, Doug Marillier, Travis Friend, possibly even Duncan Fletcher would be ahead of him and Mire by a long way. Chigumbura has over 100 wickets in ODI's & over 4000 runs , if that's not an rounder , what is ... By definition, yes he is an...

Re: [Match Thread] Warm up game Zimbabwe v BCBXI

Hami with a century. Elton 47. Everybody else crumbled. Sad. 15-a-side cricket is a very interesting concept. Wouldnt be surprised if they try introduce it in the next 10 years. I think it would make test matches a lot tougher. Maybe bring back some excitement to it but I know 90% of the cricketing ...

Chigs fighting for life. Hami getting us past an embarrassing double figure score.
Elton always finds a way to stay alive.
