Rubbish, he retired on 10 Nov 2020 after the Pakistan series to give youngsters a go. He could coach power hitting at least cause he was good at that.

Why people are discussing about retired players.
Now focus on current players and on those who are available in bench.

It's really Chigumbura and Waller are not even good in T20. They are not consistent anywhere. Tiripano is far better then these two.

Concentrate on PJ, Burl, madhvere, Prince or Zuwao. If kumun improve his shot selection then he will be best.

Tari has to solve his footwork.

Main thing is if bowlers can bowling well then we can easily win. On an aragerage we are suppose to manage 150 easlily. IN T20 if 2 or 3 batsmen worked good then it's enough. But in the case of Bowling department, Everyone has to perform and it's compalsary to win any T20 match.

Our bowlers must have to bowl on correct area and with variation..
T20 match require extraordinary bowling. Yorker,Slow balls, Spin , Googlies are compalsary.
If you are going with Speed only,, You will be loss and punnished. Blessing, nagarava all must have to take ownership.

I must say, with all the names being spoken about, and considering it is a year away, I am not filled with much confidence.

Tiripano would get smashed by quality T20 batsmen, like cannon fodder. At least Elton will have a swing at some and may connect a few. There are no other naturally big hitters in the Zim system and I doubt they will find any in a year. Nabi still plays T20, age isn't so much of a concern in this format.

Yeah, there aren't any T20 specialists in the country.

A T20 NPL followed by a national tournament is the only way. Otherwise we will never know who really can clear the ropes. We need to completely start again in this format. Do we even have any T20s lined up before the Pakistan series?

As mentioned before age isn’t really a big concern in this format so I would suggest Waller, Elton, Zhuwao and Mire play in a domestic T20 competition. Not necessarily for them to make the national team but to pass on some knowledge. If Hami hadn’t suited up I would have suggested he plays too.

What is the obsession with Elton and Zhuwao? Yes Elton is a big hitter but he is extremely unfit and inconsistent. Zhuwao was given his opportunity and failed to take them. He is 36 and not going to get any better. There is absolutely no point in putting him in the squad and hoping something comes of it.

Waller last played a competitive match in 2018. The guy has retired. No need to try and rehash anything. Age may not be a big factor, but all the names being spoken about, especially these three are 35 plus. We're going to need walking sticks on the field.

I don't understand the thought process here. One side we talk about how we need to blood the youngsters and theres this push to play Wes no matter what. On the other side we want to bring back players who have not played in years nor shown any quality.

T20 is not a hard game. Cricket in general is not hard. We can do well at the T20WC, but it will just require proper planning and development from now. Our admins are just too dumb to do that or see it, and our coaches are too poor to know how to coach, train, and develop.

Raza opening makes sense. It's clearly not working batting him at 5.

Is Chamu still the interim captain? They really should have given it to Raza. Extra responsibility I think would really help his game and he's clearly a leader out there.

Haven't heard anything different but if they don't pick him we'll all cope.
