Mountaineers winning the cup must be a formality. Or can Tuskers overhaul the lead if the Stars can do them a favour by beating the Goats?

Does anyone even care with the XIs as they are... :?

Not even Chatara playing this round, so absolutely no centrally contracted player turning out.

There is no "non - centrally" contracted white players in all the franchises :) representing in Logan Cup or Pro 50, once resumed after the qualifiers

Club Cricket in UK getting more preference then domestic cricket

I've never even heard of half of these guys :?

Whatever happened to Mark Mbofana of the Rhinos?

Ngoni Mupamba gets hundred on FC debut. Who was the last Zim player to do so? Don't think there are many...

Mayavo seems to have improved his game, we’re seeing some consistency from him now.

I noticed it too. Could it be due to the confidence he would have gained by being with the national squad when he was selected for the WI test series? Both Streak and Taibu clearly went on record to say he is currently the "best" wicket keeper in the country, but has work to do with the bat and that they would be monitoring his progress closely. That was probably the spark he needed to get inspired?

Look the bowlers they're facing the level just isn't high enough to take anything from these scores

Yes, but even then, we are noticing better consistency from the likes of Mayavo and Tsiga, compared to, say, a Musakanda. What does that tell about Musakanda then?

Yeah, Tari has been weak against weak attacks.

Mayavo has certainly improved. To where? Who knows.

What to make of the Don? He keeps scoring runs.

The bowling attacks are very weak but it is also a really bad look for Tari I will admit that. He should be standing out. Consistency is also hard to achieve even against weaker opponents
