So it’s the best of the rest match. Fighting out for remaining spots, since the top 3 bats aren’t there

Yes. I think the real practice matches will be in the bubble in Abu Dhabi. They don’t even know how many people they are taking yet so it’s survival of the fittest

I’m sure Williams is sick if I recall what others said, but I think Craig and Bt should play. They need match fitness too.

Musakanda is in serious form. Burl opened and got a score. Regis is an automatic pick along with BT,Ervine,Williams and Raza. This means Wes,Burl, Prince and Tari are fighting for 3 places.

I think Tari opened

As you said he’s in form and if he’s going to open he’d fix a lot of problems for Zimbabwe, especially in the limited overs formats. #chamuout

Busted a finger. He won't and does not deserve to be selected anyway.

If Tari opened then even better. Why didn’t Prince play this game? A Tari- Prince opening Pair might do ok. So that would mean Burl and Wes would be competing for 1 spot then. Has Williams recovered?

Mashinge also getting 5 wickets and a 50. He deserves a chance. He is direct competition for Tiripano. I would say Mashinge is a slightly better bowler whilst Don is a slightly better Batsman.

‘A’cricket would have answered a lot of our questions.
