Re: Raza wants to play for Zimbabwe

Its great in the short term that we have all these foreign players playing cricket for our franchises, as it raises the standard and exposes our cricketers to different styles and tactics...

Re: Zim 5 to Watch: Season 2010-11

It's fair comments from ZIMDOGGY in regards to Panyangara. He has been out of cricket for a long time, and he will be a bit rusty, but give him a season of first class cricket and i think he'll be the bowler he was in 2004. Howver I don't agree with what you said about him not being the real deal. ...

Re: Vusi Sibanda analysis

Conant, I understand your points. My point about Kenya is that performing against them does not secure ones place in cricketing greatness.
