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

As stated we have to keep the franchise thing going to tick the boxes, but send the better guys to SA if they will even have us, it’s absolutely our best option. If they bury the hatchet with Taibu they could send kids to U.K. on a “gap year” playing cricket. If anyone really good materialized he ma...

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

Comparing Duckett to Willie and LJ highlights a lot of the problems we face with wrong perceptions. I like the way WM plays his cricket and I do think LJ is (was? Haven’t seen him for a while) very talented, but there’s just no comparison. I shudder to think how many high quality games Duckett must ...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

https://www.sacricketmag.com/csa-declare-loss-of-r200-million-and-extend-nenzanis-stay/ Now here’s a big shock. CSA lost R200 million Rand this year. :lol: :lol: About 30 of it got syphoned off via Boland cricket I was told. You’re on that slippery slope, next will be a bailout from a “tame” bank th...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

No disputing that. Very good player, just saying he could have done a couple of seasons in Twos before they handed it to him on a plate.

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

Yup that old school tie and old boys network is alive and well in England. I’m wondering what happened to the ex England coach’s son? He was a millfield player and a damned good keeper batsman. Played u19’s I think.

They play rugby out of there and I think the rugby section have a lot to do with the upkeep as well.
It’s how it all used to work, before the freebies became the order of the day.

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

OG’s is good. Some money has gone into it and it’s still in good nick and the clubhouse has had a makeover. They would be a great inclusion to our club system but the committee is not interested. I’m not sure who’s behind it all. They play some social cricket there and I suspect those guys help. Gar...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

What I have seen is that some of these academy lads in these lesser counties are quite ordinary, what they see in some of them makes me shake my head. Higgins has done damned well. I’ve misjudged him. I’ve watched him and wasn’t overly impressed, but I guess it’s not how you look, dirty runs count t...

Re: Were Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis worth it?

Here are the leading scorers & wicket takers from this seasons Div 2, forgive me but I can’t see many well established international players there, I’m sure BT & KJ are still good enough to at least feature at this level?? Surely I’m not being too outrageous with this comment?? Jimmy Anderson takin...
