https://www.sundaynews.co.zw/bio-bubble ... mpetition/

Looks like the first batch of games is from 3-20 December. This bio bubble is going to drain funds. By the time you cover PCR tests , Accomodation ,catering etc it would have cost us at least 1 test match

Sometimes I even think Hami would have been a far better player had he not taken that time off

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

You don’t even have to finish your degree in 4 years if you are going to be playing cricket for 15. Maybe ZC should bridge the gap and offer to pay for part time uni. I think we can experiment and monitor Wesleys’s progress as a player over somebody who chose the uni option. Then we can see in 5 yea...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

Honestly you could study fulltime in South Africa and still play cricket for Zimbabwe. Our season is only six weeks long anyway. It always amazes me that with such a short season how many of ours guys have randomly scheduled weddings or vacations during the same six weeks. I think it shows that pla...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

The only way we survive is by importing players. The bio-bubble is too costly for ZC . They are surely trying to find a way out of this because we know them. I think their best bet is to start with the 1 day tournament and try knock it over by Christmas then negotiate with the ICC. The Logan cup bio...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

I thought their contract was 4 years starting in 2021? That would mean it would finish in October next year. Well that’s what people were saying when it suited their narrative, funny how things change. https://www.financialgazette.co.zw/taylor-pens-4-year-deal/ It’s not a narrative. I don’t know ho...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

In fact if you honestly ask. Is there a game that Jarvis won for us single handedly since he came back like the way Blessing did a few weeks ago? Or how many games has he dominated like the way BT has since he came back? But suddenly ZC are the bad people in the whole situation

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

Sometimes when I see some of these players walk out I wonder if they would have been able to deal with a tough, competitive environment with real racial quotas and where results actually matter like South Africa. Too many people just decide to walk out when the going gets tough yet as fans we have h...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

It’s interesting how your employer can give you a long term contract with the first year being paid upfront, you go and buy a house in an exclusive gated community then a few years later the story is they are treating you badly yet you were injured for the last year of your contract. Yes it’s not th...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

I honestly thought we would keep this core group of players until the next World Cup. Anyway if that’s the case they should use his wages on somebody else
