How much of a pay cut though. 10% 30%?
I was told we were ALL getting our salaries HALVED. Mine will now be unlivable (it's two months in arrears anyway), especially as I am only to be employed part-time.

Re: Logan Cup R4 2019/20 Mountaineers v ACHPP & Rhinos v Tuskers

You play Boozers’ league so you can have a laugh with your mates, but I think this is dying a slow death, if it hasn’t already. Do you know what "RhoDocs" stands for? Rings a bell- was it Not Rodox? I’ll ask someone. I played for them. It was originally an amalgamation of two club sides of former R...

Time for a poll :)
I say declare overnight. I can't see Sri Lanka chasing 356 at four an over and putting their series win at risk, and we need all the time we can get, with rain around, to bowl them out.

I know he doesn't set the world a light, but is there a more likeable cricketer than Donald Tiripano? He shows the same grit and determination that we were renowned for in the 1990s.
Yes, he's a really nice guy, so many Zim cricketers are.

Re: Logan Cup

I’m very sorry to hear that, John, you and a number of others deserve much better. Rest assured their inner circle will still draw their very big stipends and think they can keep this charade going. They can’t see that the corrupt ICC are turning the tap off slowly, much like the frog in the pot of...

Re: 15 Man Test Squad Announced

These guys are always going on holiday, attending weddings, etc., during our three month cricket season. Either they are professional cricketers or they aren't. This shows that many of our players don't really have the passion needed to be international sportsmen, it is merely a nice career for the...

Re: Logan Cup

If ZC can keep our cricket afloat on $5m a year it begs the question what have they been doing with the extra $4m that we’ve been getting :lol: :lol: They can't! That's why Logan Cup matches are postponed and everybody's salary (I am told) reduced by half. I can't survive on my new salary for too l...

Re: Logan Cup

John Ward will know if there’s been an overall cut, but he didn’t answer the query. I’m curious what’s happened to Bvute since his fall from grace, was it catch and release? Is he still a life President of ZC? Is his watchdog cousin, Esther Lupe, still watching the purse strings? I didn't see the q...

Re: 15 Man Test Squad Announced

I spoke to PJ Moor this afternoon. He says he missed the first Logan Cup match because he was on an overseas visit to see relatives and, like all of us, had no idea beforehand when the season was going to start. He played in the second match for Rhinos without much success, and sought and received p...

What do we know about Charlton Tshuma??

Is he express pace/swing bowler or What????
Fast-medium seamer, persistent and pretty accurate, but I would think he needs more experience before he actually plays Test cricket.
