Re: Zimbabwe Photo & Video Memory Thread

Oh, I see the Marillier match in India has already been mentioned above. Anyway here's another one from way back when the fathers of two current players were still active and Zim beat England in a low-scoring thriller in the WC: http://www.youtube.com/user/robelinda2#p/search/0/kfPJvem5_38 http://ww...

Re: Zimbabwe Photo & Video Memory Thread

Some bits from the brilliant youtube archive of robelinda2: Footage of Matsi as a twelve-year old, as he gets to meet David Boon - isn't he cute (Matsi that is)? I was interested to learn that he bowled a few leggies too at that time. Not so sure about some of the views of his coach though. http://w...

Re: [Match Thread] 2nd Match: Zimbabwe XI v Australia A

A look at last season's statistics shows that there are no outstanding regular openers in the Logan Cup: Duffin 466 at 38 Is that merely an error or are you deliberately doctoring Duffin's figures in order to undermine his undoubtable class? These were his figurers last season: 466 at 46.04, having...

Re: [Match Thread] 2nd Match: Zimbabwe XI v Australia A

Nevertheless Taylor at 4 is attractive, provided we find an opener capable of seeing of the shine of a new ball and scoring 70-100 regularly. I'm not sure whether Duffin's that man but I'm not against proving it either way. So it's a shame he's injured. So if it's not Duffin then who? Who are the 1...

Re: [Match Thread] 2nd Match: Zimbabwe XI v Australia A

(In my dreams we field six specialist batsmen like everyone else does, Taibu, Chigumbura at 8 and our three best bowlers - but at the moment you wouldn't trust Chigs with that much responsibility with the ball) Six specialist batsmen have always included the wicketkeeper unless if the wicketkeeper ...

Re: [Match Thread] 2nd Match: Zimbabwe XI v Australia A

So Jarvis gets a chance to prove his place implying the selectors have settled on Mpofu, Vitori, a third seamer and Chigumbura. Interesting therefore when Cremer comes back, add to the mix Utseya and no longer a spot available. What will be sacrificed, a third seaming slot and hoping Chigumbura car...

Re: [Match Thread] 2nd Match: Zimbabwe XI v Australia A

Good selection for this match, gives us a fair idea what the selectors might come up with come the first test. Of course Taibu in for Chakabva if fit and a viable number 8 in, that is one of Cremer (still injured, so unlikely), Utseya or Meth. Taylor at 4 is my preferred option, instead of him openi...

Re: [Match Thread] 1st Match - Zimbabwe XI vs Australia A

The most impresssive for me has been the opening pair. Its not easy to play the new ball from an Australian attack comprising of Hilfenhaus, Siddle and Copeland. So, I wont support changing this opening pair for the next game. Instead, Taylor can bat at No 4.That will add more depth to our middle o...
