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...

Re: Jackie du Preez no more

Sad, he was a real fighter whom I saw play many times. He did not actually die from a heart condition, though - it was cancer, which also cost him one of his eyes before it finally took his life.

Re: Gerald Peckover

Very nice guy. Perhaps he might remember me, as I was involved in schoolboy cricket when he worked for Mark Manolios - please give him my best wishes.

Re: Trevor penny

So, in the style of the Graeme Hick thread, can anybody shed some light on Trevor Penny? Was he ever selected to play for any Zimbabwe age group sides growing up, or was he always destined for England and the county system? I believe he came back quiet a bit didn’t he to play FC cricket? No, he got...

Re: Graeme Hick

Going off his stats it sounds like he absolutely crucified all FC bowling attacks Going by his stats he might be the best ZIM origin batsmen after Andy Flower. Has a first class quadruple centiry FFS!!! Just want to know from perhaps John Ward what he was like as a schoolboy, and why he decided to ...

Re: Remind me who this was

Yeah, Trenchard it was. Whatever happened to him? Seems odd that he disappeared just as he was on the cusp of a break-through. He had a bust-up with his coach; I think he was negligent with his training or something like that, and walked out when he was dropped from the team, if I remember that cor...

John,

Do you know why Shumba didn't get a bowl or was batting so low?

Thanks!
Don't know, I'm afraid. But he got his ton today, so should be promoted now!
