Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

Nyauchi has found the jimmy Anderson trick of getting the ball to move both ways. I will say it again the set up of the south African captain was great. Two outswingers followed by a massive Inswinger that poleaxed him. Now if only ngarava could do the same we have a serious test match bowling line up

Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

Turn and bounce from chipungu.
Considering this is his third first class game he has equited himself very well.
Could have had a few more wickets

Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

Chipungu looks alright. Something to work with to replace creamer ultimately

:W: Please check out Nyauchis second wicket just pure class. Wow!!!
Just that solitory wicket alone shows why he should be In the test squad. Proper set up of captain. Previous two balls swung away or held line and this one that got him out swung in.
Nyauchi seems to have a good cricketing brain

Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

I like nyauchi. Gets good shape. Him blessing and ngarava should lead the test line up.

I was wrong about chivanga. Needs a bit more time and another season at first class. Lovely action though

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Nyauchi should be selected next match. Gets some good swing and bounce.
Stick in ngarava too.
Chatara isn't really match fit for 4 day let alone 5 day matches. He is no longer a 22 over a day bowler. You would have to use him short and sharp which is why he should remain in one day side

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

So myers and shumba are a cut above the lacklustre seniors judging by the second innings

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Ervine and Williams can play next match for sure.
Don't want them undercooked going into the Bangladesh matches.
The fast bowling situation is very worrying. Blessing is the only class player we have. Ngarava could Be a good find but needs more time and matches.

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Wanted to see myers bowl to be fair.
Muthasamy must be kicking himself after the other batters feasted.
Ngarava nyauchi and blessing not a bad bet then for the Bangladesh tests.
No other bowler has shown anything to depose them from their spots in the test. Chatata hasn't done a great deal
