Re: Future tour rumours

Being the romantic I am, there is a faint hope the ICC will enforce the Test Championship. From what I understand, each test has relevance. So, even in a dead rubber, the remaining test(s) account for points which all contribute to the final tally of the championship. And relegation is a possibility...

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

Eugene,
Just for the heck of it, could you please name the 15 New Zealand batsmen who could make this current Aussie team?

Re: Should Australia have its test status suspended?

Can someone please identify who "they" are in making calls for Zimbabwe's test status to be revoked when Zim do badly? Is it Australia, ZC or other countries? Is it cricket journalists, commentators or pundits? It's certainly not the ICC- those who have the power- because even though there is some s...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Due to lack of further responses, I'll offer some. Even though I'm sure they're not the proper answer. What I offer is true but whether there are 43 on this list, well.... Strang is the only Zimbo bowler to concede 200 runs in an innings. Strang is the only Zimbo bowler to take 7 or more wickets in ...

Re: The steriotypical Aussie

I'm going to cheat & have more than one choice. Firstly, Doug Walters. Even when i was a teenager in the 70s we heard stories of Doug playing cards & smoking before going out to bat. Others would be crapping bricks, vomiting from nerves or doing analysis of the pitch & bowling. And he had the old fa...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

I'll say Strang is one of 43 cricketers who have taken 8 wickets in an innings only once in their career & never achieved 9 or 10 wickets. But the single 8 wicket haul is their test innings best. So, in the test best bowling in an innings, we discount 10 fers, 9 fers & those taking 8 wickets in an i...

Re: Malcolm Waller pulls out from the odi series against Pakistan

Was Hick a real prodigious talent? He never really did it for England when he did play My short answer to that is yes. But only up to a point, I suppose. Between 1991 & 1996 Hick was averaging just short of 40 in tests for England, being particulary consistent between 1994-96, In his last 23 test (4...
