At this stage I have Tiripano slightly ahead of Madziva & Mashinge for that No.8 - 4th seam bowling - allrounder spot
Yeah, agree. Mashinge is still not in this league I feel. He's gone for too many runs whenever he has bowled even this season although he has picked up wickets.
I'll feel good with the Jarvis-Chatara-Mumba-Tiripano lineup for sure.

Madziva is probably more likely to hit a slashing test half century very occassionally.
Tiripano is far more solid for No8. His bowling is also more likely to chip in with a couple of wickets and bowl to whatever team plan is required.

Madziva I think has more potential to win you a game than Tiripano does with both bat & ball, but Donald is so consistent & if Zimbabwe decide to go with KJ-TLC-Mumba+1* they might think Donald’s consistency is needed more so.
Interestingly looking at their career numbers in 1st Class matches Madziva averages 30.55 with the bat & 23.85 with the ball, compared to Tiripano who is 25.03 with bat & 24.17 with ball.
Madziva will need a bag full of wickets and some more runs if he’s going to push his way into the side.
