Re: Deadly draw for Zim U19s in the upcoming World Cup

I guarantee they were given the money for 3 square meals a day. Nick Singo is the master of misappropriating tour funds, should be in jail many times over.

Re: Heath Streak's Bulawayo Firm land to be one of the venues of the qualifiers 2018 ?

I'd love to know how much this Rising Stars English tour is costing ZC. I get that there's some sponsorship, but I'm willing to bet that there's been some nefarious business surrounding all of this. Having said that as long as the players have benefitted then it's not all bad. I just have this patho...

Re: Tribunal decision threatens overseas cricketers in club game

Ya a large number of English players head to the Southern Hemisphere to play their season. I'm not sure the ECB have thought this through. They need to lighten up, league cricket is a lot more interesting there with young Aussies, Saffers, New Zealanders etc in the sides. This only English and parti...

Re: [News] Zim A players conduct grassroots training

Good to see efforts being made to spread the game. https://www.newsday.co.zw/2017/08/08/zim-players-conduct-grassroots-training/ The health of cricket depends on whether young fans in parks want to emulate players in stadiums https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DGoL2PlXYAAf5IZ.jpg We've had twenty years of...

Re: Zimbabwe bids to host ICC 2018 World Cup Qualifier

Country club's pitch and outfield is a mess. It will take a lot of time, effort and money to get it back to what it was a couple of years ago. How many grounds would be required to host this? I hate being the harbinger of bad news, but the state of most pitches leaves a lot to be desired. St. George...

Re: Victoria Falls Stadium - back on the agenda?

The sole motive for going ahead will be to award tenders and contracts for self-enrichment. The scramble and skullduggery involved will be stupendous. If it was closer to Hwange it could double up as an occasional football venue. They have an annual Boozers' League Stragglers tournament and I guaran...

Re: Transfer From Under 19s to National Team

There's no job security in cricket here. If you're not centrally contracted you're on $200 a month for a franchise side, and probably not guaranteed of regular games and definitely not guaranteed the being paid the $200. Nobody is going to risk that straight out of school if they've got options. Tha...

Re: Kenya U19 vs Zim U19 series thread

Woahh...9 Indian origins in that Kenyan U-19 Kenyan international cricekt died not because of the ICC largely, but because the African players revolted against the Indian administration and selection domination by Indian players. Yes they have been named a tribe (Indians in Kenya), but the dynamics...

Re: Zimbabwe rising stars

More plundering has been accomplished in the last 30 years in SA and Zim than in the last 120 years. Let's talk about reparations. Both countries are in ruins.
