Re: Match Thread Zimbabwe Under 19s v Scotland Under 19s

Gotta win plate now or at least get to final. Fancy our chances against Sri Lanka or new Zealand. England might be a stretch. We shall see New Zealand is in the Quaterfinals. Its SL and England in the Plates amongst Test nations. Shocking that Ireland keep missing qualification for the U-19 WC. Can...

Ngarava is an option but he’s all over the place. Has a bit of pace though
Ngarava is the same pace as everyone else. And he's worse than Tiripano.

Mumba for Ndovolu. Its a no brainer. Mumba actually has some pace (can hit 140).

Re: 2020 Under-19 World Cup | Pace Watch

Aussie quicks seem to be in the 134-135 range.

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Even the likes of Bangladesh and Sri Lanka have better pace attacks now... Now I never thought I'd see the day :lol: :lol: :D :D Remember last year when we had that big discussion about the BD pacers vis a vis the NZ pacers with the new ball? The Bangladeshi seamers certainly have promise and poten...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

All in all in wasn't a bad game by Zimbabwe. WIll be interesting to see how the conditions are for the 2nd game. Surely it will be played on a different strip(???) But there was some good application shown by some of the batsmen. If they carry it forward, its going to make for a competitive Test mat...

Re: ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020, South Africa : Other Matches [ Except Zimbabwe ]

Ok, I didn’t realise they were that tall as a unit. You are right, it has to be diet then. They definitely are skinny. Some of our batsmen are tiny, which makes our fast bowlers look even taller. And yes, our fast bowlers are insanely skinny. The only guy who had a decent build was Taskin - and he ...

Re: ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020 : ZIM U19 VS PAK U19 , Potchefstroom

Is there a path for Zim to still progress? Obviously we need to smash the scots, but what else needs to happen? No, because BD and PAK both have 4 points already from 2 wins each. SCO and ZIM can only get a max of 2. Also, PAK and BD have insanely high net run rates meaning SCO and ZIM have very lo...

Re: ICC Under 19 World Cup 2020, South Africa : Other Matches [ Except Zimbabwe ]

I feel what truly holds Bangladesh back is health. Cricket isn’t a game for a big guy but a lot of Bangladeshis are very very small, much smaller than Indians, this holds back on pace bowler development. Imagine Bangladeshi batting and Aussie/West Indian bowling speed and hitting power. Except that...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

I'm not panicking yet. As I said yesterday, the aim is: So let's say 1/20 at stumps. 3/90 at lunch. 6/170 at tea. Which we are on track for, and we can afford to lose one of these guys at the crease. I have tremendous faith in Tiripano. If we have one more guy make 30 or 40, I think we'll be safe. ...

Re: Bangladesh in Pakistan 2020

The BD squad has landed in Lahore for the T20 series which starts in a little over 24 hours from now.

I'm hoping we can win 1, but it may well be a 3-0 whitewash. We've got almost a full strength squad...only guys missing are Shakib (banned) and Mushfiq (his family didn't want him touring Pakistan).
