We got them again?
Thats a good start. Weird, but good.

Other teams in that 9-15 region must be filthy with us.

Good news for Zimbabwe, I would like to see Zimbos preparing some hard and bouncy wickets which will make it difficult for Asian teams like Afg, UAE, HK, etc. There is a chance may be one among SLN / BAN / WI will have to play the qualifiers and they will struggle under such conditions as well.

If the conditions are like slow and turning, then it will be very difficult to stop the likes of Afghanistan and Asian countries. There is effectively only 1 open spot. Such a shame because there are quite a few good teams out there.

Why is there only effectively one spot open?

That's our coldest time of year, often get a bit of frost early mornings and can be bloody cold if you get what they call anti cyclonic gloom, which is basically overcast with a biting wind in the mornings up until about 10am and then gets cold around 4pm. Its also dry as a bone.
Its never going to rain. Most days are cloudless skies though. For me the worst time of year on the highveld.
Its basically winter cricket.

Yeah but it won't rain, the domestic season in Zim could start in late September and we wouldn't have so many abandoned games

As long as it doesnt rain, its great for cricket.

A little frost never hurt anyone - except perhaps some Asian teams :lol:
