Re: Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

Nick Welch made 5 for Loughborough MCCU, who took an unexpected 1 run lead in their game against Kent. He opened and was out for 5, just before the close. He didn't get a chance to bat in the 2nd innings as rain halted Kents 2nd innings and that was that.

Re: Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

Watched Oxford MCCU on Monday and Malcolm Lake was not in the squad and has finished at Oxford. Not sure what his cricketing or indeed life plans are from now. I didn't get a chance to ask the Oxford coach unfortunately. Lovely day watching first class cricket in the English springtime though. The P...

Re: Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

I agree. The attack he was facing was quite modest, but he still batted very well. They got Somerset 9 down in the 2nd innings, so I wouldn’t say the bowling looked easy though either. Trescothick and Azhar Ali were opening, so it will be interesting to see where he bats.Never thought I’d be able to...

Eddie Byrom and Nick Welch

The first class season has started here in England, and Eddie Byrom has already made his mark by scoring unbeaten 50 and and unbeaten 100 for Somerset vs Cardiff MCCU. Bowling for Cardiff was Brad Evans, also a Zimbabwean. The whole game was streamed live on youtube and is still able to view, if you...

Re: Some insights into Muzarabani Kolpak deal

He won't have played anything in England for a few months. We've had snow and sub zero temperatures. Northamptonshire's first games will be in April, so it will interesting to see if he starts for them and how he goes. It's not garuanteed. The standard of first class cricket here is better than peop...

Re: Mapping the T20 performance of Zimbabwe's opponents before the T20 Pre Qualifiers 2019

That may be true but Scotland are developing into a serious team. Kyle Coetzer (74 off 38 balls) is quality, and they have some fine other players too. They have a good structure and a proactive board. Everything in fact that Zimbabwe are not. I reckon they would beat Zim if a T20 or ODI. was to pla...

Re: Ryan Burl

Afghanistan are hosting (in India) Ireland for a full tour in late Feb and all through March. They also have 2 Odis vs Scotland in early May (I’ve bought tickets for the first one) and then 2 more in Ireland. So they actually have a decent programme before the WC. If Zimbabwe were to play them it co...

Re: Ryan Burl

Agree 100% Sloandog. ZC are digging their graves. Not just theirs, but cricket in the country. On another point, Scotland, Netherlands and Ireland are about to play a quadrangular tournament in Oman. Scotland then play 3 Odis vs Oman, Netherlands then play some Fc teams in India, and Ireland are the...

Re: Future tour rumours

Scotland's situation is similar to Zimbabwe in some respects. After they beat England in that ODI in June, they havn't played an ODI since. It's ridiculous and makes me really angry. They tried to host Nepal for 2 ODI's in August but couldn't afford it. They still don't have a fixture list. The curr...
