[MATCH THREAD] Pro50 R5 2019/20 Tuskers v Rhinos & Rangers v Mountaineers

Post by jaybro » Wed Feb 12, 2020 2:46 am

Another day, another round of Pro50 matches, hopefully the weather stays away although the forecast looks bleak

It's a shame the Eagles are on the bye, it would have been good to see Wes Madhevere get another game

The Tuskers v Rhinos game will have at least 6 high profile players missing, those have been selected for the Bangladesh tour, interesting to see if Milton Shumba and Sean Williams play for the Tuskers? For the Rhinos they'll have a few guys looking to put in a good performance after being left out of the Test Squad, PJ, Madziva & Mavuta will be looking to press for ODI & T20I spots, whilst one would assume Chisoro & Tari are still in the naughty corner

This match promises to be a one sided affair between the Rangers & The Goats, the Rangers really seem to be struggling now after a promising start to the season, now they're missing their four best players things will only get tougher. For the Mountaineers they'll be weakened by national duties as well, but they'll still have a few seasoned campaigners looking to book themselves a spot in the ODI squad.

Rangers should have signed Myers, Nyangani, Dane Schadendorf

Shumba gone second ball lol what a fizzer

I’m sure if he bowls well he’s still a good chance to go to Bangladesh

Mumba & Madziva ripping through the Tuskers 😍😍😍 what a time to be alive

Can someone fill me in, why Williams is out of the Test squad? I assumed he was injured again, which is obviously not the case.

By the way, people can get out in their 50s without overvaluing it too, for bowlers' brilliance, misbehaving pitch, etc. :)
