Re: NPL Fixtures 7th October

Evans and Diplock are two blokes to be given a FC shot for sure, although I understand the latter isn’t interested anymore and is looking to head abroad. Serious swing bowler who could have developed into a very good ODI bowler for Zimbabwe. Evans is the son of former national cricketer Craig Evans.

Re: NPL Fixtures 7th October

Diplock looked quite troubling for batsmen, and had Kasuza on zero, but didn’t walk and proceeded to have a very unlucky day with boundaries flying off numerous edges. I'm curious about this. When we were being coached we were always told to be fair and honest in the game. Our coaches were always l...

Re: NPL Fixtures 4th October

Harare Kings win toss and elect to bat first against Great Zimbabwe Gladiators win toss, elect to bat first against Rainbow HK.jpeg I was at the Gladiators-Rainbows match - very poor batting by Gladiators, just wild indiscriminate hitting for the most part, no attempt by the top order to build an i...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Live streaming

Harare Kings on paper looking the strongest. Interesting that the national captains are not captains for their respective sides. The format is each team plays each other once and who is top after 8 matches, they win the comp. I'm sure the national captains will rarely be available to play for these...

Re: Is this not the perfect time to start over?

The last I heard, cricket is one of the sports not permitted to be played in this country by the government under lockdown rules. As for South Africa and the ICC, South Africa would be considered much more of a loss to world cricket than Zimbabwe, so I am expecting the law of expediency to come into...

Just to say that Chibhabha is generally known as Chamu, not Justice.

Re: Carlisle thing

Yes, I remember Stuey did not always look assured at the crease, but I remember two occasions in particular I saw him when he was confident and determined, and showed himself a player of real class. Zimbabwe v India, June 2001, at Harare Sports Club. Zimbabwe needed to score 157 to beat India, a ner...

Thanks eugene, great to read those answers. Unfortunately for jaybro, the Fletcher vs Curran debate rages on... :)
I would give my vote to Fletcher as the more reliable, the cooler head. Curran could certainly do great things, but he could also do crazy things, certainly less predictable.

Re: Gerald Peckover

OK, I have had fun conversing back-and-forth with Gerald Peckover, he is a nice guy. John Ward , he does indeed remember you! How did you get into cricket as a youngster? Who were your mentors and heroes in cricket? I started playing cricket at my junior school Courtney Selous in Harare at age 7. M...
