Of course.
Another case (20th time in two weeks) of a zimbo overvaluing a fifty
By the way, people can get out in their 50s without overvaluing it too, for bowlers' brilliance, misbehaving pitch, etc. :)
Of course, but just look at how many get out just after 50, or on the dot, as THREE have this round alone.

This can’t be a coincidence as it’s been happening for years.
My strong suspicion is they release concentration after getting it. Other countries experience the same phenomenon, but after a century.
It’s holding us back.
It’s a mentality of being satisfied with 50, and not having the drive, or fitness, to carry on. Stephen Fleming said it was rife in NZ cricket in the 80s.

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.

Thanks, missed that -- although it kinda comes back in the foggy background of my mind that someone was having a baby somewhere :)

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
Unfortunately poor shot by Shumba, a half-hearted drive leaning back, did not get his head over the ball and caught at mid-on.

In this case Jongwe chucked it away, apparently deciding to celebrate his 50 with a six and instead putting the ball down long-on's throat. But until then a fine innings.

Probably nowhere, I'm afraid! ZC releases them to the local press only, to use in their papers if they want, but on the odd occasion when I do see a local paper I haven't found any of my articles for years. But I used to get paid for writing them. I should still do, but I am still waiting for payment - surprise, ZC have no money! In Zimbabwe today you have to take what you can get.
