Re: Zim Schools cricket system is in the gutter: Mangongo

Does anyone know of any non Indians that have played in their FC set up? I’ll guarantee there have been many they have wanted to, but India have a fine exclusion policy. I don’t think Mangongo is trying to make excuses, he’s making valid comments at the wrong time. Whilst he’s really pulled out the ...

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

You’re missing the point a bit. Those guys developed their game over there. You keep a good player in our environment and the chances of him going to the next level are slim because our structures and coaching are not to standard. For example I’d be interested to see how good Sam Curran would have b...

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Players leave to go to school, university, work or to try and play regular cricket, they’re not being head hunted by ECB. Schools offer scholarships because that’s school policy to have an international flavour and the top schools have millions of pounds to play with. The boys that have gone there o...

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

England don’t look for talent abroad, what are you talking about? You can’t even get a visa to go and experience the shit weather.
All the top sides have an abundance of their own home grown talent.

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Interesting that Gill is being mentored by Dravid, that’s an interesting combo- The Wall with a dasher under his care. That’s what we sorely lack. Ed Byrom gets to bat with Trescothick, it can only help him massively.

So you think Roache is England standard, like the next Mason Crane?

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Ok this has not been good to watch. From what little I’ve seen Shumba, Roache and Madhevere are ok. Myers is young and has batting potential. I’d like to have watched Dollar, but not to be, and Shardendorf was a bad ommission as he can play a bit, and can bowl. Roache has panicked with his bowling c...

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

That’s not even their opening pair! They’re giving other guys a shot, I thought so, Shaw is an opener.

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Connolly looks ok. How does Roache bowl Myers ahead of Connolly? Looks like he’s got good control of line and length but he’s not going to trouble these guys.

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Would like to see that delivery again, definitely went the other way. How do we have a 15 year old seamer with a life threatening action bowling at these guys? Toothless seam attack. This is going to be a 10 wicket win for India. Damn my mojo is gone. This is not good. Ya Gill looks amazing, doesn’t...
