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...

The LC is starting in December & here's hoping to an uninterrupted season with all players available & turning out. Firstly, congratulations on the tour of Bangladesh.

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...

Re: Ireland and Afghanistan Test Watch (2018-2023)

So the gloves are off for the India v Afghan test. Asghar Stanikzai trying to deliver the first verbal blow by labelling his spinners better than India's. Coach Phil Simmons was a little more circumspect acknowledging that all his team are untried at test level. Possibly more. Afghanistan have playe...

Correct on both accounts. The list being: Oates Kasteni Barrett Mawudzi Ngulube Burgoyne & Byrom (whom I missed) Further to the Oates game, this match was the final of the Logan Cup on 19-21 April,1996. The preliminary rounds were played between September & December 1995. Then Zimbabwe toured NZ & t...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Probably time for clues to the debut centurions question so we can move on to the next one. The first unidentified centurion, I believe was the first in LC history(remember, since 1993/4). It occurred in one of the most remarkable matches. A father & son played together- I imagine that to be a recor...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Mawudzi is correct. These are from the Logan Cup. There are 3 left on my list. The first two have finished their careers. Their careers were short & they each played the same number of FIRST Class games. One of these two previously represented Zimbabwe under 19s & had a marvelous strike rate. The th...
