Funny to listen to an Irish and American commentator at the same time. One is bad enough :lol:
These Irish love their cricket, shines through their commentary, they’re building their cricket block by block.
They are very complimentary about a couple of our players as well, and seem to at least feign surprise that Ireland are doing well.
I was just going to say this isn’t a 30 off 20 wicket. His dashing nonsense has to stop man, we’re trying to win a game and don’t need these big shots.

That shot he played right there would get you dropped from a lot of teams.

This is a big test for Burl. This is make or break for us today and if he does well he’ll become a regular.

I’d keep the fielders really tight on him. He likes to nudge and noodle behind. C’mon Ryan, you’ve waited a long time for this very situation.

It’s amazing how often that short mid wicket comes into play. He smoked that, didn’t deserve to lose his wicket, was looking good and we’d have definitely won if he was there at the end. Anyway not over yet.

Burl is going to have to play a few shots, not high risk, but nudging it down to backward square for one at the beginning of each over is not going to get us over the line. We’re 80 behind and he seems happy to farm the strike out? He has to take responsibility.

Time to fire interim Zimbabwe Selectors.

Want ex players like Ray Price, Mangongo, Blignaut in new selection panel
Success depends on Aggressive Instinct
