Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe, 2nd Test, Dhaka

I watched almost all of this series thanks to the youtube feed, and I thought for the most part it was engrossing. Watching Zim play good hard test cricket is brilliant, and something that we don't witness enough. I agree they showed good fighting spirit, a bit like the 90's , and getting a win in t...

Re: [Match Thread] Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe, 2nd Test, Dhaka

This is all going to depend on our first innings . If we bat solidly and get over 300 we are still in the game. If we collapse for 170 we are in trouble.

Re: 2nd Test Build Up

I've no doubt they will produce a pitch that turns, but there is a chance this could backfire, particularly if Zimbabwe wins the toss and bats first, which would probably mean Bangladesh will have to bat last on it. We have 4 spinners of our own who bowled pretty well in the first test, who I'm sure...

Re: [Discussion] Why there's no Tinotenda Mawayo in test squad ?

His 163 not out vs Pakistan in 2011 was a superb effort. If I remember rightly, he carried his bat and was out there over 10 hours, against an attack that included Saeed Ajmal. He has played several other good knocks as well. He's the best test opener we have had since coming back into the longer fo...

Joyce, Poynter and Murtagh are all genuinely Irish. Where do you get your stats from?

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

He does. You would think T20 has got that new audience, now they want 100 balls. I worry where its all going...
Even at club level we are producing less and less young players who can bat time, and last through a whole innings , mostly around the 50 over mark.

Re: Zimbos in UK 2018 Season

Googly, most English clubs would like to have overseas players as it's good for them, and great for the player. For years it's been a win for both parties. The problem now is the visa rules have made it an absolute minefield, and so many clubs ( including my own) are just steering clear. It's a mass...

Re: [Series Thread]: 2018 ICC World Cup Qualifier | Non-Zim Matches

Agreed Googly, HSC looked absoulutely brilliant yesterday, with a great crowd in. Good that Sky Sports showed it live (if you're in UK as I am), and will now show a few more games. Btw, that's my kind of triathlon!....
