Is he suppose to move permanently to play for Ireland cricket? IF yes then it will be bigger loss to us(Cricket Zimbabwe)

More than likely just some cricket in the European Summer, although Zimfan1 suggested he isn’t happy with Zimbabwe not selecting him of late.

You have to think though, Moor’s family is well setup in Zimbabwe so you’d think his future is in Zim. Also he’s hardly going to choose club cricket in Ireland over a Test match for Zimbabwe.

I doubt he’s going to be selected for the upcoming series, but I definitely think he could be a key player for Zimbabwe if the ‘Big 4’ retire after the 2023 WC

Not good news for Zimbabwe.

But Moor should have been regular in shorter format cricket, deserved support after few of his failures.

Moor should have been playing a lot more frequently for Zimbabwe, although it may just be that he is looking for some game time. Too early to conclude that he is moving to Ireland.

He's not eligible to play for the Irish national side until October 2022, as there is a 3-year cooling off period between switching between full member nations. If Zim pick him in the meantime, it'll be put back even further. Although I guess he'll be arriving in Ireland for the season quite soon, so presumably he isn't going to be involved in the Pakistan series.

Having said that, Ireland are desperate for wicketkeepers at the moment so this could be quite shrewd by Cricket Ireland......

Ffs this is so frustrating. I had been hoping he was going to be selected for the test series.
Such a shame

I am convinced if he had stuck around for another 2 weeks he would have made the T20 squad after the domestic T20. Interesting choice. There is so much cricket to be played this year. There is always an opportunity. If he wants to play for Ireland I can only wish him the best .

I think if he is selected for the Pakistan series he will stay and play, this is just another UK club contract. However we will get out answer when we see whether he plays in the domestic T20 starting on Saturday.

This is where there needs to be conversation with ZC. I don't think ZC communicate much. They need to be talking to players all the time, discussing plans and idea. I feel he would have signed the contract because he knows he wont be picked.
