Re: [NEWS] ICC comes to rescue of Zimbabwe's Irish tour

the Zimbabwe tour which is going to cost half a million, with both men's and women's teams coming. Why does it cost so much to host a couple of games of cricket? Off the top of my head: - travel within Ireland for both teams; - match fees for the Irish players; - accommodation & food for the visiti...

Maybe they can’t find a broadcaster to buy the games?

1986, versus English Minor Counties XI at HSC. So that’s your XI - it’s on Cricinfo somewhere...

hopefully not till we've beaten them in a few weeks
I'll be at the first Belfast match, anyway. Probably bring both my Irish and Zim shirts and swap 'em between innings. :D

Unfortunately, the scheduling gods decided to set most of the games for while I'm away in England. Bastards.

The always smash their way through the Africa qualifying group - the standard of competition is dire. Next qualifying stage, when they're playing teams that can play , usually sees them on the receiving end of multiple drubbings.

Re: Windies openers smash record ODI opening stand of 365
