Re: [News] Zimbabwe cricketers may or may not play in Afghan T20 league

One thing I'm curious about....nobody wants to play in Afghanistan or Pakistan..but have any players ever been killed (or even injured) at any matches or...well...ever, even outside of matches, during tournaments there? The SL team being attacked in Pakistan was a clear sign of danger for those cric...

Re: Aussie players not happy with payments

Was never just a ZC problem. Was a perennial WI problem too. And a SL problem. Was an occasional English problem too. And was a MAJOR Kenyan problem.

We will see how Australia and the others perform (or not) as a result of these disputes. It will be instructive to see if the performances dip or not.

Re: Ireland's worrying form

Ireland's form does not surprise me. I've long maintained on this site that Ireland for too long had an unsustainable model; piggyback off of English county cricket with just a limited cadre of players. Ireland did not do much to deepen or strengthen cricket domestically until after Afghanistan burs...

Re: Afghanistan Watch 2016-2018

Yup. Afghanistan did really well and lots of credit to them. They have two bowlers in the top ten for ODIs now and deservedly so. What won't surprise me though is that the experience of Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will teach the wider cricketing commentariat nothing: the "minnow" tag is de...

Re: Bangladesh Watch 2015-2019

Great run by Bangladesh! Am glad they made it to the semis and showed the world that the "minnow" tag is just so much coded discrimination masquerading as "objectivity".

Re: WI Domestic Season

Okay, so time for a lot of updates. It's been an extremely busy period for me so haven't been able to update as frequently as I would like. So here's how things went. In international cricket the rest of the ODI series with England really only saw Mohammed, Nurse, Carter, Holder and Joseph put in pe...

Re: Bangladesh Watch 2015-2019

All this young talent coming through the ranks for BD sounds so exciting. For Zimbabwe there are only a handful Of guys and most will probably leave anyways ...... Keep faith jaybro, Most of the handful of young talent will likely leave yes, but the bad environment (the politics) must end in the fu...

Re: Is 54 all out vs Afghanistan in Harare the lowest point?

Even if Zimbabwe were to be demoted to associate membership, unless the personnel in ZC changed, then ZC would still misappropriate whatever funds are given by the ICC. Better a couple hundred grand than millions. That's rather negative thinking Kriterion. How about better zero than even a couple h...
