Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

Just going off cricinfo it seems as if the Don is bowling super economically and also creating chances. :W:

The loss of Williams as a bowling option will hurt us all through this innings.

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

People remembering Mpofu through rose coloured glasses, I remember him going nearly 3 Test matches without taking a wicket, although again like every other Zimbabwe seamer he's bowled his entire career on shit house slow decks To say that Bobby could (still can) bowl quickly doesn't mean he's a sup...

Myers is probably injured, though.

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

Strangely, our quickest seems to be Mpofu, who is a 135 guy, and the forum actually talks his speed down! Yes, even in his last outings under a speedgun Bobby was bowling a lot quicker than Jarvis/Chatara and everyone else in the team. I recall a couple of bouncers in the higher 130s, but I think h...

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

What's hurting us again is he lack of a big hundred. Since 2011 only BT and Hami have shown themselves capable of such on more than one freak occasion. But it would be unfair to lay any blame on Williams who heroically struggled through despite his illness. It's also what separates the men (40-50 av...

Re: [MATCH THREAD] U19CWC Plate QF Zimbabwe v Canada

Yeah, just realised this with a glance (and a shock) at the cricinfo scoreboard. Can Bawa get us to 200? I see they have again picked our non-bowling, non-batting allrounder at 10, sigh!

I read the AC interview in full. He seems like the kind of guy who does want whats best, but is very careful to make sure he looks after AC first

Yeah, come on Zim! Let's put some more runs on the board and at least make the Lankans sweat a bit.

Bad day at the office for their SLA.
