I know ZCB not a very efficient organisation but the way you guys find problems with everything they do is also not acceptable.

I think overall this is a good squad. Probably they had a clear criteria that attending the training camp is mandatory for selection and hence Chakabva is not selected. Overall a good squad, all the key players are available and selected, I think they should win all the games.
Give me one good reason why Chigumbura or Mutumbami should be in the squad
1.G.Flower 2.B.Taylor 3.M.Goodwin 4.A.Flower 5.D.Houghton 6.N.Johnson 7.T.Taibu 8.P.Strang 9.H.Streak 10.R.Price 11.H.Olonga 12.A.Campbell

As Bliggz pointed out the squad is boring and safe and reeks of 'favours for old friends' the squad needs some new blood, good to see Kamunhukamwe, Burl & Ndlovu there but surely Murray and Mumba for Mutumbami & Chigumbura would have been better??

I feel for Maruma and Regis who have been left out, two ways of looking at it firstly that they should have turned up for the training camp like they were asked, but still if it were some other higher profile guys we'd be up in arms.

I guess the only saving grace is both were probably lucky to be in the UAE series and IMO aren't guys who will take Zimbabwe forward.

Shows how much espncricinfo take notice of Zimbabwe cricket mentioning that allrounder Chigumbura will help bolster the attack lol

Netherlands squad: Pieter Seelaar (capt), Wesley Barresi, Ben Cooper, Bas de Leede, Scott Edwards (wk), Brandon Glover, Vivian Kingma, Fred Klaassen, Max O'Dowd, Roelof van der Merwe, Paul van Meekeren, Tobias Visee, Saqib Zulfiqar

Dutch side missing big stars such as Myburgh, RTD, Snater & Tim ven der Guten

Zimbabwe really should win all 5 games easily

I’d like to see that ZC bill from the Falls. I’d also like to be in charge of the bungee jumping for a couple of days, and they’d be doing it at gunpoint. :lol:
Nice offer - I presume no strings attached? :)

According to the ZC press release, Regi, along with Timmy Maruma and Brian Chari, could not be considered because they have contracts with English teams that prevent them from touring.

Well that's a different story, although it's quite sad these players are opting for club over country

Why should we not hold those in charge accountable? This is why Zim has gone the way it has. No one holds anyone accountable and the thugs just get away with it.

Nice John. :lol:

I’m sure Murray would have been available for this. He’s another that’s going to rapidly lose interest if he’s no longer under consideration and there are no A tours. I see the SRC has just been reconstituted with Mlotshwa as their chairman. He’s ED’s son in law and I think may have represented the Player’s Union at some point?
Let’s see which way he’s going to jump. He’s got some serious influence and he’s sharp, I mention this because he should be up at the Falls seeing which of the Board members has a legitimate O level and could recognize a cricket bat. If you got someone to draw a hybrid burrowing cricket cross a fruit bat and there was multiple choice I would guarantee there would be some wrong answers.
Kirsty Coventry will continue with her IOC bid and drive her fancy new Gov issue Mercedes and do jack shit. A swimmer out of her depth.

They may not get a game but I think since Mavuta has lost form they wanted to give mutambami another chance. Chigumbura shouldn't get a game I think.
