Has a player ever held a position in the selection panel only to be selected years later in test cricket?

Seems absurd and shows what a mess Zimbabwe cricket is, Tibba should never have retired and I think you fellas are right he regrets it.

No point bringing him back IMO the side is already too old.
Wasn't Sanath Jayasuriya selector/sports minister/player all at the same time :lol:
But then again SL was voted the most corrupt board :lol:
Is the Sri Lanka board really corrupt as well??
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

The Zimbabwe Cricket team have found Ebola in one of their members, but they're not concerned because they have also found Ebatsmen and Efielda!

The ICC said a few weeks ago that SL were the most corrupt board, even more so than ZC.

3 catches but a failure with the bat for Taibu in the first innings of the latest outing (out for 13). Not sure he'll get a chance to bat again in this match. Why are the Lankans playing 3 day FC matches instead of 4? Most matches are ending in draws...

Taibu has added 2 more catches and A WICKET to his kitty in the second dig! :lol:

EDIT: Taibu got 3 wickets in the end. Reaches the milestone of 25 FC wickets with that - of which 8 have come in a single innings. 8/43 being his best figures long ago... :lol: :lol:

I wouldn’t mind a comeback plan for him if we had the World Cup to look forward too, in other words, a short term premier event, but at 35, there’s no use and it’s hust wasting time that s young guy can be developed. Even if he was in form, there will be a point around 37 where his athleticism completely goes on him.

The exception to this was he dominates the scene with a 50 average thereabouts, but let’s be honest, he was never that great with the bat at his peak. Only equal to a Williams, Raza.

So Taibu did not bat in the second dig at all. Could be some injury?

Latest tally since comeback (not sure why I'm keeping track of this so religiously though) :

Matches: 6
Innings: 9
Runs: 256
Catches: 16
Stumpings 1
Wickets: 3
