A ZCF trip to Zimbabwe is what is really in order. I would love to watch Zimbabwe play at the HSC, followed by a few beers at Googly's mansion.

Would it be better at Zim or a place like Sydney where a lot of people here are based?

Would have to coincide with some meaty cricket and cheap fares if Zim

And it would have to be within the next three years.

Before;

The last remaining decent generation retire,
And,
Before Zimbabwe devolves into straight out wartime Somalia.

There's a few Australian tennis players & NRL players who should take a pilgrimage your way to realise how fortunate they are.
Hahah, I know who you mean, but knowing them, they would probably use it as some publicity stunt. Talk about how blessed and touched they were to see what was happening and then two weeks later, be caught on the piss outside Kings Cross harassing some girls.

Pocock is one of the few who knows how fortunate he is and does everything to give back. It's systemic of the society though. Pocock got arrested and charged for protesting a coal Mine. Folau got thousands of dollars and media backing for condemning people to hell.

I would make the trip down south. Zim would be a bit pricey to travel to (i work in the industry, been keeping an eye on the prices), and I'm not really sure it would be worth it to watch Kaia play a 50 ball 10, or Elton swing and miss as he hits an fearless 5 against a Nigerian side who go 1 up in the 3 match T20 series.

We would do it in Sydney if this were the Australian Cricket Forum.

I say Sydney because it is touristy and I think most forum members are in Sydney or surrounds.
Jemisi, Jaybro, some other dude on the top of my tongue.
Zimbo and Milan are a cheap flight away.

That said, UK suits me just fine as I can get a cheap Ryanair flight from my current Soviet abode. Before People think the Sydney idea was self interest.

Berlin or Düsseldorf would suit me too thanks to Ryanair. Foreignfield can hang out with us and show the forum his pimp game and where he hides the bodies.
