If Snater is tossing up between staying with Holland or going back to ZIm you could understand why. He's about 4th or 5th in the seam pecking order in Holland, and the way things are going more South Africans will be switching to Holland in the coming years. Compared that to Zimbabwe who are always struggling for seamers at the best of times, and with KJ retiring & big question marks over Chatara getting back to his best, Snater would realistically be the 2nd best seamer in Zimbabwe.

The other big draw-card is obviously Test cricket, although Zimbabwe don't play many Tests you'd think he'd get about 20 Tests by the time he retires, where as if he stayed with the Dutch he'd be banking on the ICC giving them full status which might never happen.

Jha seems wasted at the top when you have Shumba, Moor and Jongwe showing some hunger below him.

This was my point regarding Nkosana Mpofu the other day. He's definitely more reliable than Jha and Chari doesn't churn the rounds out like a test quality opener should!

Are those guys you mentioned just protecting themselves from the new ball though?

Shumba and moor have a patheay to the national tean opening if they are good.
Shumba is an opener, and a young batsman that has big expoectations, so why waste time with a deadbeat?

opening the batting can also mean max value for runs whilst the ball is rpck hard. flies off the bat. need to do away with the 'protecting against new ba;;' mindset as other countries are.

Besides, the best players are best placed to protect.

For me the openers should be the best players of pace.

Is Shumba an opener? I've never seen him down as opener before? For me there's legs for Moor to do that role, but I reckon he's going to keep and bat at 7 more realistically in the long run.

Maybe the Don comes somewhere

By that reckoning Kamunhukamwe
