People really ought to put this Lady Chevrons issue into perspective, it’s being milked to death.
Once again ZC knew they needed to tick this box and they’ve done it in the most superficial and cheapest way possible, much like they do anything else. Once the 400 hangers on come back from their free holiday ladies cricket will be forgotten until next time the possibility exists of an all expenses paid excursion arises.
Exactly. Everybody empathises with them, to have put in any amount of time and worked towards a goal - no matter how unlikely - and then be deprived of the opportunity is an extremely unfortunate situation.

However, you can't let the tail wag the dog. Men's cricket subsidises women's cricket everywhere, it's just the reality of the situation. It's like the airplane safety message, you have to attend to your own mask before helping the kids. The singular focus has to be on saving the men's game, because if it dies everything else will too.
Very strange statement, so your idea to save the men's game is to get it banned from the ICC?

Don't know how true this is, but looks like the suspension of the ZC board will be lifted by the SRC:

I meant don't rush into a bad deal because the women's tournament is coming up, that would be lunacy.

It would be like, instead of waiting until tomorrow you overpay $10,000 for a car today so that you can save $5 by driving to the all-you-can-eat buffet tonight.

I'd prefer to leave the analogies to Googly though, he's better at them than me :P

The ICC have behaved disgracefully throughout all of this. It's clear they have been looking for a reason to oust Zim. They didn't wait long at all to pull the trigger.

In light of this news, I just hope the SRC have not agreed to a stupid deal considering there is literally zero upside to having the old ZC board quickly reinstated now.

Judging by this post I suspect they have though :x : https://twitter.com/briangoredema/statu ... 4694421504
The lady Chevrons have been used to expedite the deal between the SRC&ZC suspended board. I hope after this the girls will be respected more and a women's cricket league will be formed as soon as possible. Otherwise we cant continue on the old path.

If the horse has bolted then SRC should just reimpose the ban again. ZC have had long enough to do what they’re told. Very occasionally in africa there are consequences to being a white collar criminal. No one to blame but the ZC, the players and the staff for this. You need a bit of spine occasionally.

It would be good to see if they listened to the Interim Board the third time around! I doubt it.

Dreadful news. I guess we’ll soon begin hearing the announcements of retiring
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....
