Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

The Murray situation Is just strange. Maybe something happened behind the scenes. In his case I think he is making a mistake but hey... you can’t force somebody to play for their country. Cricket is just one of those sports where the national pride levels are just low. The most ironic part is that i...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

Funny thing is ZC can match those wages for good players. Still if I was Welch I would get the 2 years county experience and see from there. Wait till BT and co call it a day and then demand their current salaries

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

Yes Ballance last played in July 2017. He is eligible from mid next year. He will be 31. Could be a good fit if he wants a nice comfy African retirement. 4 year BT kinda deal The players are there. The money should be there. It’s all about the leadership making the right moves. That’s the difficult ...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

Nick Welch is on 50* for The Kings, class act as expected whilst no other batsman can get past 30. I spoke to Nick today and he hopes his international cricketing future will lie with Zimbabwe, although he has a two-year county contract ahead of him. This is great news. Just out of curiosity how do...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

I would think that the likes of Mudzinganyama will get picked up by a franchise like the Southern Rocks. The academy side was a bit too weak for me. They were getting hammered whenever BT Jarvis And Mudzinganyama were not there

Re: 'Fully fit' Elton Chigumbura targets much-needed return to form in Pakistan

Until 1 of the younger players steps up and really makes that finisher role their own guys like Elton will always have a chance. It’s not his fault he scored some runs and the squads are bloated. Unfortunately we are not in a position where we can just turn down players. Even if Vusi starts scoring ...

Re: Who are the guys you would watch this domestic season and why?

Unless he will use British Ancestry or something like that to go to the UK I don’t think he has any other choice in terms of an international cricket career

Re: Who are the guys you would watch this domestic season and why?

From what I understand Murray has given up on Zimbabwe, was not prepared to play domestic cricket and expected to just walk into the squad against Pakistan and has now gone off in a bit of a huff. Fingers crossed this changes. First the Boks withdraw from the Rugby Championship, now this. Not a goo...
