Re: Stay strong

The only thing Zim has going for it is natural resources that can be managed with top talent from outside the country, but the politicians can very easily hoodwink the low IQ population into making them feel its colonialism or an invasion. The Chinese are already taking over most of the world. I do...

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

Smith has a career average of 60 plus. Thats puts him at least a notch above anyone else. Then its Kohli (based on recent form), KW, Root. In fact, Root might not even be the 4th best batter in the world at the moment. Also Jaybro, the new Perth stadium I heard is only supposed to host the Big 4 tea...

Re: Cremer quits (temporarily?)

Tweets state that Cremer has left with his family for Dubai where his wife will fly for Emirates and he will temporarily look after the kids. What a huge loss for our cricket yet again. Mavuta is miles off being an adequate replacement. I don’t think Dubai is a great place to raise children, especi...

2 tons from 8 games isn't terrible.

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

South Africa are easily the worst side facing spin, and apart from Maharaj they don’t have another test quality spinner, I genuinely think a full strength Zim side could possibly beat them on a turning deck if they had some good warm up games prior and batted first. Australia with Smith & Warner wo...

Re: Future tour rumours

FTP is binding now. So if BCCI is postponing the series it has to be with ZC consent. I was about to post that there isn't any point playing India's third string team either in India or in Zimbabwe, but that would belie my underlying position that all games at international level matter and all fixt...

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

I doubt NZ would even consider Australia a rival at the moment. Maybe some sort of feeder team? When all is said and done AUS still have more players that would walk into the NZ side than vice versa. Warner, Smith, Lyon, Cummins, Hazelwood would all walk into NZ Test lineup. Quite possibly Starc as...

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

How many of the current Zimbabwe batting line up would walk into the Australian lineup? Brendan Taylor, Sean Williams for sure. Maybe Sikandar Raza also? Williams definitely not. He is in form now, but its only over the course of one or two series. Lets not forget that midway through 2017 Ervine wa...

Re: T20 World Cup 2020 : Bangladesh & Sri Lanka missing out and Afghanistan secures direct entry

The pretournament qualifiers isn’t the same as making it it to the big dance, you want to be playing against the best not the curtain raiser. Should make the top 12 The initial round of 8 teams is still branded as the WT20 proper. I agree that the real tournament starts with the Super 12 stage. But...

Re: T20 World Cup 2020 : Bangladesh & Sri Lanka missing out and Afghanistan secures direct entry

Really is no excuses for Zimbabwe to not qualify for this tournament, probably need to get Mire back for this WT20 is 16 teams so ZIM will definitely qualify. Super 12s might be tricky given ZIM are ranked 12th so they have no margin for error. But as long as they are in the top 16, they are good t...
