I’d like to think he’s preparing for the Zim 2020 season by which time we have new administration :lol:
But you just can’t trust a guy with voices in his head :lol:
Murray vs Taibu.....Mmmmm

Taibu out for a brisk 39 in his latest outing: http://www.espncricinfo.com/series/8830 ... -a-2018-19

We can follow the match along there to see if he gets a second chance + he could reach 300 FC catches in this match.

So Taibu is playing with some Sri Lankan international cricket players.
Why didn't BT, Hami, Sean Williams, Craig Ervine, Chatara , Jarvis etc enter the auction in Sri Lanka

He is 2 stumpings away from a century in his career.

What has that got to do with Taibu playing? he's playing FC cricket after putting his name forward in response to an advert for an overseas player

Opening the innings, he made 57 in the first match (second innings). He is averaging 30 plus after four innings.

He quits for religious reasons then pitches up playing in the UK. ZC offers to get him back and he doesnt take a playing role as he still has church work but he takes an admin role.

He falls out with ZC then suddenly he is playing FC cricket again because his son wants to see him play. Like he couldnt see him play club cricket in the UK.. So if his son says wants to see him play for his country again what would he tell him? That he has to start his religious work again?

Sounds like a hypocrite to me. Just like when he was encouraging the rising stars to boycott ZC yet when Andy Flower asked him to take a stand he refused.

Damn right the dude is a hypocrite. Seems to think the world revolves around him.
I think we always had a tendency to overrate Taibu because he was the best of a bad bunch during those forgettable years. In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king, so to have a guy averaging 30 when the rest were walking wickets averaging 15 we thought he was a gun.

Not to say he was a poor player, he was a really good wicket keeper and a solid batsman - but IMO peak Taibu would not make the team ahead of current day Taylor, Masakadza or Raza.
Apples and oranges. Taibu is a wickekeepr first and foremost - the best we have ever had for that matter, then a batmans second. He was a premier batsman during the post rebel because was one of the more experienced not because he was the best, or better than Taylore for instance.

An, whats up with all the Taibu slander anyway? I have only read half the posts here but wow... Taibu was what? A hypocrite because he failed to take a stand with Flower??? As a 20 year old?? In a fight he hardly had understanding about? Jezz... Come now guys; and who says Flower was right anyway? And what does that make Taylor who also refused to take the so called stand?

What right do you guys have to judge one man's religious views as if you understand them; who did he kill? If there's anybody who's a hypocrite here it is the guys on this forum.

Did he not ask the likes of Mavuta, Kamunhukamwe,Tari,Murray and Muzarabani to join the strike in July? Arent these guys only kids as well? What did they have to do with Taibu's fight with Mukuhlani?Thats why I called him a hypocrite.

Never doubted his ability on a cricket field though.
