No Moor or Burl they’re the big shocks

I bet Moor is regretting missing those Logan Cup games now !!!

Kasuza
Masvaure
Ervine
BT
Williams
Raza
Regis
Tiripano
Mumba
Jarvis
Tshuma

That would be my XI
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

I’m sure the line-up for the second test will be different.

I was just going to say that will change, I’m sure of it.
I was right about Burl, damn shame. And he flew back early didn’t he from the BPL?
I’d have had Moor in there for sure.
Good luck to the lads though, the names there deserve their places. Glad Prince has been given another chance, he looked particularly handy against the spinners last time he played against New Zealand

I think Nyauchi comes in ahead of Tshuma. He has a lot more experience.

Probably. If Kasuza and Masvaure fail. HHM's dream pick has finally made the cut. Mudzinganyama must have really really impressed in training. As for Burl and PJ. Can't say I am surprised.

Raza came with the right strategy. Come and score big so that they cant ignore you. I guess he has dealt with ZC long enough to know. Why PJ missed that second game after not impressing in the first I will never know. As for Burl that's probably the biggest surprise. Burl and the new odi captain.

They usually have a training game before they pick . I wonder how that went. I'm happy for Nyauchi too. He has been asking for an opportunity for years. Tshuma is also a good pick. He will probably play on Sunday.

Chari missing out is also interesting. They really do want to try something different uptop. Personal I feel Chari PJ and Burl will be automatic picks in Bangladesh because they are more suited to those kind of conditions.

This is going to be a test series we haven't seen in a while. Seam friendly pitch in overcast conditions. A lot of our guys are used to the opposite. I doubt there will be much spin. Chatara is the biggest loss out of all those people not in the squad. Mpofu might have been a better replacement because of experience and his height and pace (he can bowl in the late 130s unlike most of our guys)

Moor is better wicket keeper batsman then Regis Chakabva who cost Zimbabwe test in Sri Lanka & Bangladesh.

Timycen Maruma another rubbish addition, Burl is better leg spinner batsman then Maruma, even Mavuta would have been better addition.

I don’t disagree with this.

Ya we’re seeing a selection that has been a while in the making. Between these tests and the Derbyshire internationals we’re going to have a look at everyone. Basically every player of any note that thinks he’s in with a shot will have one game to make a name for himself. :lol:
