This is all because of us. ZCF has been responsible for Moor and Burl, and we will get Jakiel into the team too.
Not that there's any doubting his ability (as a top class bowling allrounder who is just as comfortable opening the batting as he is bowling 150kmph toe crushing yorkers, he's an automatic selection) - we just need to convince the man himself to make himself available for selection again! Judging by that article, we've almost convinced him ;)

True I have seen him mentioned on this platform countless times I was so glad on reading the article early on Sunday
I hope he will get a run in the side and realise his potential

ZCF really does have pulling power with the selectors. Imagine if I hadn't started #Ervinemania and #Moormania?!

Moormania seems to have increased the bloke's self belief. He must be a regular guest here.

We all knew he could play, it was just about getting the best out of his ability. Really does seem to work extremely hard at his game too, which is nice.
When in doubt, listen to Oasis chaps....

Has there ever been a ZCF driven campaign that hasn’t resulted in national honours ?

No, but we weren't all that successful in getting Matsi and Dabengwa out of the team in the early years. It seems we can only get guys into the lineup!

Remember there was a Nyumbumania too, which worked well around his debut. Very few failed campaigns to "get them in the team" for sure.
