Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Firstly, Kasteni is the international on this list. Secondly, I was wrong. Byrom would have been on this list. But he is the exception to the others having played other FC matches as noted. Good thing I had my weasel clause about not guaranteeing the list as being complete. And a note to self: check...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Yes, to clarify, this list is maiden first class hundreds on debut in Logan Cup. But. coincidentally, they all were making their FC debut also.

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Stats Quiz

Following Ngoni Mupamba's century on debut, it made me research LC records for similar instances. I found 6 other instances although I don't guarantee this list is complete. Of these instance, I guarantee Mupamba's is the highest. Only one of these 6 is an international, albeit very briefly. I could...

Re: Status of National Team Players

Jaybro suggested a thread on those responsible for the state on Zim cricket. I’m sure they’ve been named & shamed throughout this forum, just not collectively. Anyway, I refer to Malcolm Speed’s wiki page which states he was on paid leave the last month of his tenure after a fall out with Ray Mali o...

Re: Captain as a bowler is a blame idea

Yes, IF your VC is not a muppet. I saw England lose their way in in 82/83 ashes when Bob Willis over bowled himself & let the game drift, losing the initiative. I saw Ian Botham lose his way in the 81 Ashes & then the captaincy. That was known as Bothams Ashes. Kapil Dev & Bishen Bedi did not capita...

Re: Best Zimbo with no international cap

Based on LC records only, I’ll add a few more names. Most on the list seem to have got an ODI cap but not test representation. Again, stated without prejudice to talent or politics. Greg Strydom- over 2000 runs at 44. Richard Sims 1100 runs at 40 plus useful spin. Taurai Muzarabani over 150 wickets....

Re: Captain as a bowler is a blame idea

Fine. Then state you mean Zimbabwe history. We can’t read your mind. And you’re probably right. One dilemma a captain/bowler has, is to when to bowl himself & for how long. Fatigue, if nothing else, clouds one’s judgement. Also, most wicketkeepers are in the leadership group because they have the be...

Re: Captain as a bowler is a blame idea

Oh Mueddie28, pls check your facts before you post. Yes, most captains are batsmen & a lot were slippers. But as far as keepers go, test cricket has known 31 keeper/captains. 20 have captained for less than 10 tests. 9 captained between 10-20 tests. Mushfiqur Rahim captained for 28 tests & Dhoni for...

Re: [MATCH THREAD] Logan Cup 2017/2018 Eagles vs Stars and Goats vs Rhino

In reply to TapsC’s comment about record number centuries & fifties in a LC round, I found the 5th round of the 02/03 season contained 6 centuries & 11 fifties. There were 2 games in the round & the matches began on 18/4. In the round just completed, there were 6 centuries & 11 fifties & the matches...
