Re: [Match Threads]: 2018 Tri-Series Matches 3 & 5 | Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka

this is Rahul Dravid / Hamilton territory. Hahah Crimson couldn't help yourself ! You are the undisputed No.1 Ticket holder in the Hamilton Masakadza Fan club :D :D I am not sure they really do have the talent. Also, consider the guys they have lost to retirement over the last ten years, truly a go...

Re: Zim Schools cricket system is in the gutter: Mangongo

Does anyone know of any non Indians that have played in their FC set up? I’ll guarantee there have been many they have wanted to, but India have a fine exclusion policy. I vaguely remember Kumble and Srinath, years ago when they were heading the Karnataka State Cricket Association, suggesting in on...

Re: Mangongo unhappy with Under-19 World Cup scheduling

Yeah, irrespective of where we stand, the point is very valid. It is not just squeezing more matches from some teams while others relax, it is also about the travel that comes with it as Mangongo points out. They can hardly get a full day's preparation in. And he has pointed this out as a general pr...

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

Yup, he has played two tests since he has come back, and has easily been the best pacer on display in both of those tests, with his accuracy and the way he has got his wickets. And he has just played the two ODIs, not much to write home about there but hasn't embarrassed himself either. He definitel...

Re: [Match Threads]: 2018 Tri-Series Matches 3 & 5 | Bangladesh vs Sri Lanka

Wow! just saw the score card. Sad to see SL like this. But Zim must capitalize. No let ups please guys. As an aside, Tamim's contributions goes unnoticed again - this is Rahul Dravid / Hamilton territory. Agreed, this time probably Shakib did contribute very well and got a couple of important wicket...

Re: [Match Thread] U19 WC: Zimbabwe vs India

Shaw is very good, but his name is doing the rounds more because he comes from Mumbai, with obvious comparisons being made to Sachin Tendulkar. He also got a debut first class 100 and hasn't looked back. But the guy you are witnessing now could be an even bigger name in the game. Shubman Gill is bei...

Zim Schools cricket system is in the gutter: Mangongo

More meaningful Mangongo talk: https://www.wisdenindia.com/cricket-news/zimbabwe-turn-grassroots-eye-future/288343 “It’s in the gutter, to be honest.” That’s how Stephen Mangongo, Zimbabwe’s coach in the Under-19 World Cup, describes his country’s school cricket system. Only five serious cricketing ...
