Shoaib Malik is 38, he really has been around for ever. Interesting that some of these Pakistani guys really stick around a long time.

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Live streaming

Why is it 45-overs? Why not just make it 50?

Re: Zimbabwe Tour Of Pakistan 2020 [ 3 Odis & 3 T20s ] : Pre Series Discussion

It is really hard to get excited anymore. We are clearly in steady decline, in another 5-10 years we will be where Kenya is now. The decline in the game from 20 years ago is astronomical, I can't imagine where things will be in 20 years time! Maruma will probably be coaching the national team by tha...

Nothing about this squad surprised me. The usual candidates get a shot. Hard to get excited about Regis and Elton these days.

Re: Name your Zim ODI & T2OI squad for Pak tour / next series

Anyone over 30 who isn't a national auto pick should no longer be considered for the national team. Meaning the only international players above 30 should be Williams, BT, Raza, Kyle and Ervine. And believe me that's plenty as is! The rest can beef up the domestic scene if they don't want to retire...

Re: Name your Zim ODI & T2OI squad for Pak tour / next series

20-man squad?! Surely Zimbabwe will pick at least a 25-man squad for the tour? After of course whittling the training squad of 80 down.

I am thankful for this forum every time I even start to look at other cricket forums. They are mostly garbage with people flinging insults.

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

We can't really build anything until we play cricket regularly. How do you develop a test team when you play one or two tests per year? A player hits top form in ODIs and then has to wait six months to play again. We start over from scratch almost every series.

Re: Lalchand Rajput

It has dawned on me how long I have been tolerating crap from Zimbabwe cricket. I had a great time following the successes of 1992-2003. Since then we have had 17 years of steady decline. I have had many more years of the bad times than the good.
