ZRS scrapped

Rising Stars tour cancelled.

They'd have surely been due to leave in a few days. Very sad, especially for the young players concerned. Extremely bad sign for the future.

Optimism in short supply right now.

They are going to struggle in tests big time with that attack.
Ireland is somewhat wetter than UK and NZ. So accurate medium pace can be effective. Away? Massively short of bowling.

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

This is where cricket seems so archaic. Why can't guys play in England or anywhere and still be selected for Zimbabwe? Why can't cricket just work like football, rugby, basketball, ice hockey, etc? They can... However: - Anyone not an international regular wouldn't get a work permit, same as any ot...

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

I haven’t really seen enough of him to have an opinion. He’s got some decent bowling stats and can clout a ball, but that’s all I really know. I thought he was part of this Rising Stars tour?? Either he’s pulled out of it or it means it’s no longer happening. Either way not great. The Rising Stars ...

Re: [Match Thread]: 2018 Tri-Series Match 2 | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka

Clearly Jarvis is not a glamourous, world class, quick bowler. Sure. However, he does have a repeatable action, that allows him to nag away at off stump, and hit the seam. Exactly the sort of thing you would expect to learn from playing in England! Have a look at his numbers for Zim since his comeba...

Re: How other sides are shaping up before the World Cup Qualifiers 2018

Is the 2023 WC also 10 In theory yes, but in practice it will be discussed properly at ICC level after 2019. IMO being a full member should mean automatic qualification to a World Cup IMO, it should be merit based, not down to some arbitrary factor like membership of a club... That said, 10 is way ...

Re: ZIM-BD-SL Tri Series 2018: Pre-series Discussion

I agree. If Williams is fit, he is surely in Zim's best XI in ODI cricket. Especially in the spin friendly conditions of SL, UAE and at home. Not only does he bowl handy spin, but he plays it more aggressively than most in the side.
