Re: ICL progress

ICL Zimbabwe connection has turned from bad to worse. The Rockets have lost 5 out of 6 games, and have lost their last 5 encounters after the inaugural win, including yesterday's match against Superstars. Heath Streak was luckless with the ball, while luck and Wavell Hinds ran Murray Goodwin out whe...

Re: ICL progress

The standard of cricket being played is fairly decent and some of the young Indian players are performing really well against international players. That is true to some extent. Abhishek Jhunjhunwala, Raviraj Patil and Ali Murtaza have been top class. But generally, its the international stars who ...

Re: ICL progress

Another match, another bad day for Zimbabweans at ICL. Ahmedabad Rockets lost to Mumbai Champs this time around. Goodwin made 6 and Streaky got out for a golden duck. The Rockets managed to reach 131/9. Streak came back and bowled well in tandem with Jason Gillespie to keep the match alive till the ...

Re: ICL progress

Yesterday was a forgettable day for Zimbabweans in ICL. Ahmedabad Rockets lost by 9 wickets to Delhi Giants. Both Goodwin and Streak could not reach double figures while batting and bowled 1.3 and 1 overs respectively. No luck with wickets either.

Re: Bangladesh v Ireland

Read in some other thread that Ryan Ervine is already qualified to play for Ireland. Any chance of seeing him turning out for them in this series???

Re: Series thread : Standard Bank Pro20

I agree with most of the side, but I would play an extra batsman. Especially since Sibanda and Taylor are woefully out of form, and the middle order might get exposed very early in the innings. So I would also play Williams in the side. I would open with Sibanda and Coventry (if available for select...

Re: [ Poll ] ZCF Players of the MTN Championship

I had to make a tough choice between Williams, Taibu, Masakadza, Price, Mupariwa and Brent. Williams was clearly the most consistent batsman, and had he palyed the entire tournament, he would have aggregated close to 500 runs (if not more). So, He comes in as one of the choices. Brent did not have a...

Re: Is Proper Utseya a good captain?

Hamilton Masakadza is in form and is aggressive. Is he a thinking cricketer? We don't know. He committed a few blunders on the field when he led the team in Pakistan. Brent could not finish his quota of overs a couple of times, even though he was the most economical bowler. Miscalculation on captai...
