Very clever.
April 1, had the Blignaut reference and it STILL got me.

Realistic and subtle.

I’m disappointed there was no Blignaut return story this year :(
Every year requires more creativity to get Blignaut in there.
After he turned 40 the comeback stories became a stretch, and coaching became the thing, who knew what’s next.

My heart can't take April fools jokes when it comes to Zim cricket, especially when its such encouraging stuff.

Yeah we aren’t nearly that creative or absurd as them.
If Odendaal was Takashinga, he would both be in the squad and named vice skipper.

Speaking of captains have you guys seen the current captains? I think there is Wes, Munyonga, Musakanda, Mudzinganyama and Chari. I don’t know if they follow the old system where the captains were paid more. I find that interesting

Seems like senior guys are part time assistant coaches now. I wonder what the pay structures are like. Something tells me the assistant coach package must be better than a captains package
