More on Taibu's comeback in SL: https://www.firstpost.com/firstcricket/ ... 99041.html

He hit another 30 in a high scoring game that ended today. Should have gotten more than just a 30 there...

knew that I would walk into the domestic arena of Zimbabwe and score runs. I wanted something challenging. I like a challenge and I like to overcome a challenge," Taibu explains
So, in terms of fitness, it's probably the easiest thing for me. I would not be lying if I said I am probably one of the fittest cricketers in the world. Without a doubt," he said.
He has some ego for a church man.......

He is also the definition of flakey.

I don't doubt Taibu would score a lot of runs domestically. The ZCF XI would be competitive.
Neil Johnson, Alistair Campbell, Murray Goodwin, Andy Flower (w), Grant Flower, Dave Houghton, Guy Whittall, Heath Streak (c), Andy Blignaut, Ray Price, Eddo Brandes

He is 2 stumpings away from a century in his career.
Got a stumping done in his latest match, to go with 2 more catches and 41 runs with the bat.

He now has 194 runs in 6 knocks since return at 32.33. 10 dismissals (9 catches + 1 stumping). Has got starts in all the knocks but hasn't kicked on.

Anyone else recon he’s going to try and make a “shock “ comeback for zim to prove a point ? The man loves it to much and changes his mind in life every 2 seconds 😂
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!

Possible, but I don't think he has too many friends in the current selection panel?

No he does not but if he comes back and churns out runs , the Board will likely have no choice( they actually will as they are corrupt
Dogs) . I honestly recon he will comeback and at least try . Why else is he doing this ? It doesn’t make sense to me. I recon he has regret about retiring , I think the last test win away has shocked him .

Mate great minds and all that! :lol: Was thinking the exact same thing. It's like when Graeme Smith and Michael Clarke retired; both went on record (smith actually in the commentary box) and said they miss playing and in hindsight probably needed a 6 month break.
I reckon Taibu is gunning for a spot again, although it would be very obtuse and borderline Vermeulen territory.
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

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:
