Re: Colin de Grandhomme is now in NZ test squad!

65 off 37 so far. About time he scored some runs. Yeah, he's had a wretched season with the bat. Especially at UAE when the ball was not coming on to the bat. Much needed comeback to form pushing declaration. With the ball though, he's been very disciplined and has enjoyed some success - has had a ...

Thanks very much, Robot, and the same for you. Sadly not much of a Christmas in Zimbabwe this year.
Here's hoping and wishing that the new year has some positives in store for the lives of Zimbabweans in general, and better news for cricket in the country too John.

Re: Taibu bounces back to play in Sri Lanka

Taibu kept wickets and got a half century on his FC return in SL: http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8830 ... -a-2018-19

Not bad. He now has 299 career FC catches (to go with 30 stumpings).

Re: [Match Thread] Pro50 & Logan Cup: Eagles v Mountaineers

I think I may have seen a bit of it years ago, but I just watched Lagaan to the end today. What a great movie! Yes, Lagaan was indeed a wonderful movie. They could have probably shortened it by about 20-25 minutes with some clever editing, but it was still a great watch. Good to see you actually re...

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Photo Quiz

Nah, they can't be the same person, Crimson; although Gus Mackay seems to be free, having stepped down as CEO of Worcester Warriors two weeks ago .

Re: Zimbabwe Cricket Photo Quiz

Yup, the famous Gus Mackay , whom this and many other newspapers have referred to as "McVey". He is indeed the new national women's hockey team coach! He has had a splendidly varied coaching career, after his brief comical stint as an ODI team member for Zim, coaching cricket, rugby teams and now in...
