Zimbabwe squad:

P Utseya, H Masakadza, V Sibanda, CJ Chibhabha, T Taibu, SC Williams, KM Dabengwa, E Chigumbura, T Maruma, RW Price, CB Mpofu, GB Brent (12th man)


Williams comes in for Brendan Taylor
Brent comes in for Matsikenyeri
Maruma also makes the team.

Dabengwa continues to get selected, this time ahead of Taylor. What an absolute joke :roll:
We can only assume Taylor has been dropped, there has been no news of injury or another reason.

So, we have Williams, Dabengwa, Utseya, Price and Maruma - all spin bowlers. Mpofu and Chigumbura are the only pace bowlers. NO Gary Brent, again. Looks like the quotas are well and truly being enforced now, 2:9.

I was hoping for some sanity getting restored in 2008, as far as team selection is concerned. But...

Really? How strange is that! Just minutes ago I posted that Utseya should bat higher up the order.

I have confidence in him.

:lol: It's happened before, it will happen again.

C'mon Sean Williams, smash 100... First Class average is 46, his first target should be to beat that. Second should be to push it beyond 50, and by that time he should be nearing his century. C'mon mate.
