Jesus sending Jayden Goodwin to Zimbabwe

Post by Googly » Wed Mar 11, 2020 4:26 am

Ok here’s some interesting news-
Young Jayden Goodwin (18), who’s one year into a WACA contract is taking a two year break to follow his calling and is coming to Zimbabwe to do two years of missionary work.
Aside from my contempt and dislike of white missionaries traipsing through darkest Africa, and for sure he’s going to need to bring torches and candles, this kid is going to want to play cricket and we’re going to see a kid who is the real deal.
The God bothering thieves in Head Office should be singing Glory Be, praises on High, Hosannah, Hallelujah and pray that this kid’s God is the same one that keeps them grasping the cookie jar and whispers in his pearly white- “play cricket for these thieving MF’s and be the white Saviour of Zimbabwean cricket, my son, show them the Way and the Light!” Look he’s not going to stop them being racist thieves, but they can hold group breakfast prayer sessions and at least pretend that God is on our side.
This kid can play!!! He’s the real deal. He can seriously bat and he bowls leggies, a very unusual combo.
I hope Gary Brent is aware of this kid and ropes him immediately into the Rangers. He will be looking for a freebie and Goddammit to Hell he should get one.
It also means Murray Goodwin will be visiting.
It’s an interesting development and I can only daydream-
Goodwin, Byrom, Welch and Muyeye! Houghton, Brent, Flower, Goodwin in the management team and these young men in the fray and we’d have a fighting chance.
Hallelujah

Are the Goodwins Mormons?

That’s a plot twist.

No idea. It’s bizarre if it’s true that he’s taking a sabbatical, I mean this lad is good enough to one day in the not too distant future play for Australia, he’s proper.
Crazy stuff going on. It probably means his pops will also be coming out here to get him started, to check on him etc. In a perfect world it would be an extremely interesting development. Murray Goodwin is probably still good enough to bat 3 for Zim right now. He was an unbelievable player, just check out his Sussex record, he was one of the greats of County cricket, legendary status.
Jayden is an unbelievable talent as well. Much more to this story I’m sure.

ZC probably won’t need him, plenty of talent coming out of Gokwe and Muzarabani. :lol:

This is an opportunity to capture A star, the next BT.

It won’t be easy, but there is a real opportunity. With the right pitch.

If there was a full FC schedule of more than 2 games we could get Byrom, Muyeye, Madhevere, Welch, Goodwin, Murray and Evans for the upcoming season. Brent could rename his side the White Power-Rangers or something equally offensive to square up against the Black Rhinos, Black Mambas, Black Aces, or whatever other names guys dream up that reminds them of the pointless struggle we all went through to make 50 people rich, destroy a country and impoverish the rest of us. We could go neutral and call them the Corona’s in order to coronize cricket again.
Brent would have his hands full with this lot, some proper young cricketers there.

Murray was great at county but almost useless at Sheffield Shield. Pretty much a passenger for the two seasons I remember him there, a bit like Ervines time there. 4 failures followed by a big score.

320 matches, 554 innings, 98 fifties, 71 hundreds, high score of 344 and an average of 47 is hardly shit :lol:

Domestic career Edit

After his retirement from international cricket, he became a regular for the Western Warriors in Australia and for Sussex in England. He made 1,183 runs for Western Australia in 2003–04 and highlighted his consistency with 840 the following season. He has also played for the Netherlands as an overseas player.

Goodwin holds the Sussex record for the highest individual innings, with 344* against Somerset in 2009, beating his own record of 335* set in 2003.[2] Goodwin's 2003 innings helped Sussex to win their first-ever Championship title, after 164 years. He is also the only Sussex batsman to have twice made a double century and a century in the same match.[3]

Goodwin led Sussex to the league title in the final match of the 2008 NatWest Pro40 competition. After the collapse of Sussex's top and middle order against Nottinghamshire CCC, his 87 not out from 64 balls steered Sussex to victory. Needing three runs from Charlie Shreck's final delivery to tie the match and ensure victory for Sussex in the league table, Goodwin hit a six over long-on to clinch the game.[4]

Goodwin was released by Sussex County Cricket Club in August 2012, but was soon snapped up by Glamorgan, with whom he signed an initial 1-year contract on 17 October, 2012.[5] In his first season with Glamorgan, Goodwin averaged over 56 with the bat in the County Championship, this triggered a year extension to his contract.[6]

He was an amazing cricketer, unbelievable record.
