Re: Remind me who this was

Yeah, Trenchard it was. Whatever happened to him? Seems odd that he disappeared just as he was on the cusp of a break-through. He had a bust-up with his coach; I think he was negligent with his training or something like that, and walked out when he was dropped from the team, if I remember that cor...

Re: [ Match Thread ] Logan Cup ( Mountaineers V/s Eagles & Rangers V/s Tuskers)

Anybody saying it was the rangers well why didn't seasoned players like N Mpofu and Brian chari score a century then??? Shumba di...

John,

Do you know why Shumba didn't get a bowl or was batting so low?

Thanks!
Don't know, I'm afraid. But he got his ton today, so should be promoted now!

Re: [ Match Thread ] Logan Cup ( Mountaineers V/s Eagles & Rangers V/s Tuskers)

Looks like Wellington Masakadza is becoming another Maruma / Mutombodzi - converting himself into a batsman after beginning as a bowler and is also becoming a rubbish bowler like those two. Not many wickets to show this season. First 5 wicket haul of the season for Ernest Masuku after having a less...

Re: [ Match Thread ] Logan Cup ( Mountaineers V/s Eagles & Rangers V/s Tuskers)

More part time spin being the undoing of domestic sides, Tony Munyonga taking three scalps Unfortunately Brian Mudzinganyama has retired hurt 68* Collision with the wicket-keeper trying to avoid being run out - both were actually taken to hospital briefly with mild concussion. We had a bizarre inci...

Does anyone know what kind of a bowler is Shayne Nxumalo? Cricinfo doesn't have anything on him.
Left-arm spinner. I sent in information about him to Cricinfo this evening, so it should be up anytime.

Re: A question for John Ward: Neil Ferreria

I always liked Neil Ferreira, he was unfortunate to debut when Zimbabwean cricket was at its lowest ebb. He was certainly an invaluable presence on the domestic circuit. Yes, he probably wouldn't have made his debut in another era, though. I'm glad he did get national selection, though, even though...

Re: [ Match Thread ] Logan Cup ( Tuskers V/s Eagles & Rangers V/s Rhinos)

I've only seen Macheka bowl in one match so far, so I can only judge on that. He looked quite pacy, but still raw, and overdid the bouncer. Thanks John, looking at his numbers it still seems he’s far from being the finished product, but let’s hope he continues to progress. Please keep an eye on him...
