I like this league system where everyone plays each other. Will spread the talent a bit when players don't seek green pastures and other players will actually try and qualify for smaller nations.

As for Chisoro.
I don't get why everyone loves him so much here.
Despite today's effort, we have three spinners that pretty much offer the same as him already in our lineup.
We are better off with a pinch hitter or an extra seamer.
Wes/Raza/Sean are more than enough for our finger spinner needs.
If chisoro was Nathan Lyon fair enough but he's the other three without the batting skills.
If they need a front line spinner Mavuta is a good choice bcz he is an leggie and also a good hitter
Agreed, Mavuta is worth investing time in for those times where you need a specialist (especially Tests).
Williams and Raza (IMO) are the best spinners in Zim, but we need to think a few years ahead now - and Chisoro doesn't solve that problem.

I'd like to see a specialist off-spinner brought through the ranks though, leggies can get tonked... so it'd be nice to have a 20yo Utseya-like 0/45 off 10 type bowler we could use in the one-dayers from time to time.

It's going to be interesting to see the T20 side. Is Chamu captain of that as well?
I think they'll open with Shumba and Burl if Chamu doesn't play. If he does then Shumba will probably replace Chisoro.
I dunno, hard to guess what they'll do.
Yeah Chibhabha is captain for that too.

For mine... Burl for Chari, Shumba for Chisoro. Don't know much about this Faraz Akram bloke, but may as well give him a game.
Tiripano was good, but he's the first to make way.

Chari is a pretty decent player, he works hard, but he doesn't have the game to open in ODI's. Block block hit is not the recipe. Those hard hands of his makes red ball tough as well.
I've actually forgotten what Chamu is like as a batsman, he's never in long enough to take a look. I'm not even trying to be funny. He looks ok and then suddenly he's on his way back to the hut. He doesn't even get any lucky breaks to get going.
They're looking for two openers when perhaps they should only be looking for one. Ervine is generally in by the 4th over anyway and he's definitely got the game. Maybe he should open then you're only looking for one guy.

That one commentator got it right about Raza, his batting has definitely deteriorated. Maybe can't get out of T20 mode, but that was a flattering 40 something.
Experienced players like him have their way of doing things and you're not trying to reinvent them, but that trigger of his makes life more difficult than it needs to be. Its a way of getting momentum into a front foot shot, but you're going to be late on quick deliveries and you're going to step down the wrong line a few times and I'm not even sure what it does for your back foot stuff, but it gets unnecessarily complicated. It's almost a floating front foot like Cook, but not quite. £50/hr and I'll fix his set up :lol:

Can't there be a thread on ODI Super league? Will also help in tracking all the teams performances.

Am I correct in thinking that todays result will not go down as a ODI victory in the history books and instead will be recorded as a tied match? The Super Over is only for the purpose of allocating the 10 points. Hoping to be correct here!

That was incredible well done Zimbabwe.

Thirst for more matches now. Unfortunately won't play much now until February where we have Afghanistan for two test matches.
Now if only we could rearrange the Australia India and Ireland matches that would be great 👌👌👌

Seems as if I missed all the fun and drama this afternoon. Just watched the highlights: how bloody typical and brilliant all the same :D

Blessing and Ngarava must be the tallest opening duo in Zim history. They could go a long way if they stay away from injury these two.

And of course especially chuffed for the Don and his contribution with the ball.
