Strang got carted when there was no movement, but he had good shape when it was going. He'd be topping the Logan cup charts every year if he was around now.
Jarvis would be above Strang, but have not seen Jarvis live. I feel Strang was mortally underrated.

Re: "Zim players you've seen live" XI

Friend was so over rated. Was Bryan Strang actually even any good? Like Jaybro says, Friend was screwed around a lot and was affected by the rebel walk out. The other all round option I just thought of would Marillier. Bryan Strang was one of the few guys who had accuracy and could move a ball. Was...

Re: All Time XI

If you pick Akram, who could bat, then you can find room for Murali. The alternative is to swap our Flintoff for Murali as I would have Kallis as the fourth seamer. On their day, Steyn and Wasim are unplayable, and Mcgrath is the best at line and length that he adds a perfect third choice seamer. N...

Sangakarra 8. Warne 9. Akram 10. Steyn 11. Mcgrath Oh man, this so hard to pick. How do you leave out W...

Re: "Zim players you've seen live" XI

Paul Strang 10. Brandes 11. Olonga Subs: Bryan Strang, Carlisle, Goodwin, Price, Campbell Tried to restrict myself ...

Re: Nobody is talking about women cricket

I spoke too soon, or I overestimated Namibia.

Well done girls. Obviously the level of competition will be a little higher up in Scotland, but they have shown some really good signs. Hopefully they get all the backing needed to make the WC.

Re: Nobody is talking about women cricket

Looks like the women might be following in the mens footsteps, win all their games in the group and make it all the way to last game, to slip up at the last hurdle.

Going to need to be very tight with the ball

Use that same story but instead of the beef cake and the Vegan use a racially fuelled name and a person from that race
Context is important. There is no mention the name was racist. You are taking that line and running with it.

Re: Taibu ready to start Bill Flower Academy and release his autobiography

Mate it's simple the nick name was in reference to Nkala's skin colour, as I said although Nkala was ok with it doesn't mean the other black guys would be ok with it. Also as I said if you're going to use these types of nick names don't use them in front of other people who might be offended. We ca...
