Re: What is the worst wicket taken by a Zimbabwean bowler since 2010?

Mavuta's first test wicket was a short long hop. Yeah, that came to my mind too. Who can think of a good one (or maybe it's a bad one)? A Malcolm Waller long hop or a Hamilton Masakdza dibbly dobbler? Waller bowled so little and wasn't very lucky that way, and Hamilton's wickets would all be well s...

Re: World X1 squad

Has this become a ‘My favourite names world XI’ thread ? No! Except Pramodaya Wickramasinghe, I don't necessarily like any of the other names or their careers as such. It is neither a World XI of the one's I don't like. Just some journeyment from these teams over the years, the names that came to m...

Re: World X1 squad

How good was Neil Fairbrother? He was the glue to England's bating lineup in their bad times twenty years back. Things would have been really ugly without him. Kind of like a cheaper version of Michael bevan. Yeah, Fairbrother was one of the first names I remember following in the English team afte...

Re: World X1 squad

He's given him the gloves, surely? Yup, that was the choice. To accommodate what foreignfield is looking for, I could rotate Zim, Ban and SA players to have Alester Maregwede --> Steve Palframan Enamul Haque --> Keith Dabengwa Richard Snell --> Talha Jubair In any case, I nominate Pramodaya Wickram...

By the way, that brings in a few twists to the Bob Woolmer death conspiracy theories...

Re: Sri Lanka sold 2011 WC final to India

Shady politics are nothing new in SL. Arjuna Ranatunga, wo was quoted in the earlier article, is also in politics these days if I'm not mistaken. I give this as much credit as a ZANU-PF minister going public tomorrow, claiming Ervine sold the WC qualifiers and brought covid-19 to Wuhan. Pretty much.

Re: Sri Lanka sold 2011 WC final to India

Absolute nonsense on the face of it. Some politician trying to get some visibility. That is all. Is he questioning Sangakkara? There was also a similar allegation on Atapattu when he was leading and that fell flat too. These two are possibly the two most passionate cricketers to play for their count...

Well done CA

Despite your wobbles up top you were able to post Zimbo-competitive totals and strangle your opponents to victory
Not suffering a full blown Zimbabwe collapse, which all the other 3 teams suffered, was the only reason to get these wins.

Re: Draft 1 Poll

I knew picking the chicken farmer to lead the attack when others were going for top order batsmen was a great bet! :) And contrary to all my other calculated picks, the two youngsters Wes and Burl have been the stars in this series for my team. Good to notice that. To think that Eddo played that kno...
