What's the point of being quarantined for 2 weeks to only play 1 week of cricket. They might as well have a full tour.

I hear Australia might visit England for an ODI series in September; it makes sense for them to make this little warm-up series happen.

That’s the reality of the situation. Every team will be doing the same for all tours, whether it’s a short one or a long one.

Very exciting that Zimbabwe are touring Australia, obviously my first memories of Zimbabwe was if them playing ODIs here in the early 2000s

Zimbabwe has always performed fairly well in Australia, even if they didn’t get the results they’ve been competitive, even at the 2015 WC they were competitive in every game despite just the one win (in NZ)

I can only hope they use their two week isolation to prepare really well, it might sound ridiculous but if Zimbabwe were some how able to steal a win this could open doors for more tours.

A 3-0 thrashing will probably result in another 20 years before they get invited again.

Jeez I hope to see Wes, Shumba, Myers, Murray in the squad. If we pick the same old Maruma Chigumbura old man crew then we won't be back, but if we show there is some young talent around, even if it is few and far between, then it can be a good thing. Will be interesting to see who Aus pick as well if it goes ahead
