Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

This is why also people like Murray should not be given special treatment and must play locally. It’s a highly sensitive issue but you don’t keep a Chakabva in the system if he isn’t given a fair game against a Murray. It’s a balancing act. If you are good enough your talent will show in 1 day like...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

Maybe I’m naive but I reckon a private phone call from a talented uni kid to hammy they could nut out a deal Why bother when Hammy has already played his hand and shown that you are worth nothing to him unless you agree to his demands. Again, how much effort are you willing to go through for $300 a...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

But again, it doesn’t need to be an either or thing. When you’re at uni, unless you’re stinking Rich you still need to work anyway around 20 hours a week usually. May as well get paid playing cricket while you study as opposed to working at a hamburger shop. Everyone still has this mentality here t...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

I don't get those of you saying that the players who choose to stay overseas are at fault. Those of you in Zim know how shit things are, so obviously players are going to place their bets overseas if they have the opportunity. With ZC there is no clear pathway from the youth in to the national team ...

Re: Introducing the BBL Power Surge, X-Factor and Bash Boost

Way way way over board Nothing wrong with t20 cricket apart from the fact it’s too short Hear me out, how about we make it 50 overs a side? I don't mind the power surge, but the other two are silly. It is bound to benefit one team over the other. I know they want to encourage big hitting with the B...

Re: 3rd T20 | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Rawalpindi

Ricky Ponting was a great player, loads of natural talent and is a great coach Prosper Utseya, very limited cricketer but was able to compete on his tactical ability. I don’t see anyone giving him credit as a coach? Ricky was a thinker. You could see it from day 1. He had captain experience too and...

Re: 3rd T20 | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Rawalpindi

I said he has just as good a chance of becoming a good coach as any other former Zim cricketer I find it laughable that you guys can even attempt to make a judgement on whether or not he will be a good coach, you've never met him, you've never spoke to him and really apart from hearing him talk at ...

Re: 3rd T20 | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Rawalpindi

From Zim originally, lived in aus for 10 years or so. Low to Mid 20s in age. No kids/girlfriend. Job wise, I am doing food delivery apping atm. I may go play club cricket in UK and live there for 2 years on youth mobility visa. Better opportunities degree wise in uk I think, plus Perth is quite iso...

Re: 3rd T20 | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Rawalpindi

The more you do something the better you get at it, this rule applies to almost anything in life. The more cricket that is played in Zimbabwe at all levels can only improve things Not necessarily. If the thing you are doing more of is continued to be done the wrong way, then continually doing it is...

Re: 3rd T20 | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Rawalpindi

more cricket .... I don't buy this. Unless you are talking about it in a different context. However, if from an international context I don't buy it. We have had years where we played so much cricket and we still sucked. More cricket does not instantly make you a better team. It's a nice argument t...
