I'm not terribly keen, tbh.
I'm not too, but I want to definitely watch this happen :D. So let's see who else signs up..

But for the heck of it and because I haven't named an XI for ages, here's my fantasy side of retired cricketers who never represented Zimbabwe in an offcial Test/ODI.

Ray Gripper
Tony Pithey
Graeme Hick
Brian Davison
Colin Bland
Mike Procter (c)
Percy Mansell
Howard Gardiner (wk)
Paddy Clift
Joe Patridge
Goofy Lawrence

12th man (depending on the wicket):
Jackie du Preez
Well, interesting you mentioned him today, Jackie du Preez is no more :( . RIP!

Do you want to run this one CrimsonAvenger?

I'm still interested in playing if anyone else is.

I agree about NATO. It's place for peaceful stability is huge.
I know Trump has disdain for it because USA funds it, and the Baltic's (especially Estonia) for example gain the most but can only contribute a little, but it's soft power for the USA and allows the USA to set up shop along the Russian border to keep eyes on things.
Before NATO, Russia would instinctively devour all nations it has cultural and geographical similarities too.

That's what people need to know about Russia.

When Australia, NZ for example see a country with cultural and historical similarities, the instinct is to become allies. Russia on the other hand, sees such countries as something to consume and swallow up.

A smart Russia should aggressively pursue and make sacrifices to build strong allies with the UK and USA, and stop with the internal media talk of trying to take back the Baltic's and Ukraine.

Was caught up with a lot of work for the last couple of weeks. Let us see if I can get back to this topic over the weekend and set up some guidelines and plans for this to proceed...

One of those rare occasions when the all-conquering ZIMDOGGY makes a mueddie-esque mistake :D

Lol this is amazingly muddiesque.

This is the equivalent of Hammy kissing the certain Run our to the stumps a few years back.
