Re: Best Zimbo with no international cap

Probably the unluckiest of all the guys who did get a cap was Roy Kaia. Got a chance to play in that one ODI in the high risk Pakistan tour of 2015. Did not get to bowl when Pak batted, and the malfunctioning flood lights at Lahore meant that the Zim innings was cut short after 9 overs and he never ...

Re: Zimbabwe Tour to South Africa (3 ODIs 3 T20s)

There has always been selection issues from time immemorial anyway. Or that's the way we fans see it looking at the stats.

Re: Best Zimbo with no international cap

Doesn't quite meet the criteria, but it is a shame Andy Waller only played two tests for Zimbabwe, despite playing 39 ODIs. True. But that will open up a can of worms. Many cases like that. Barney Rogers, Sean Ervine, Niel Ferreira, Brighton Watambwa, Everton Matambanadzo, Trevor Madondo ... Even W...

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

Last weekend the WTA staged a Tiebreak tournament in Stuttgart Ridiculous! There will soon be tie-breaker specialists earning more prize money with glitz and glamour and the Federers and Nadals would be wondering what the hell is going on... I hope the tennis administrators are not foolish enough t...

Re: Best Zimbo with no international cap

I'm looking more towards under 19 stars who gave it away Malcolm Lake Andy Durham Glen Querl* Dylon Higgins Kuda Samunderu But most of them had to turn out for the franchises long enough to get to contention first. As things stand, they did not first make a case for themselves for national selectio...

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

I guess this is the strategy of the powers that be at the ICC and member boards to convert us who crave for more and more test cricket and despise T20s. By introducing something even more abhorrent than T20s, they want us to start accepting T20s at least :D

Re: Best Zimbo with no international cap

Yeah, hard to look beyond Trevor Penney for this one.

I did get reminded of Ryan Butterworth too. I have always had a soft corner for Admire Manyumwa in this regard as well. And what about Brighton Mugochi?

And yes, someone like Edward Rainsford not getting a test cap is criminal.

Best Zimbo with no international cap

Just thought of putting up this random thing. Who according to you are those unfortunate Zimbabweans to never get an international cap, but deserved it? Let us stick to post test induction, i.e., 1992. You can mention those who got ODI caps but not Test caps for those who deserved test caps too, and...
