Re: South Africa Emerging Tour

I hope Macheka sorted out his action. That was the first worry for most people. Raw fast bowling talent is rare to find in Zim for some strange reason but unlike Chivanga, Macheka has time on his hands to develop. A lot of players have been talking him up. I’m sure they will work on him. Ngarava was...

Re: Zimbabwe 'A'/U25 Tour of England 2024

Good to see Newman Nyamuri doing ok. We have a serious shortage of quality fast bowlers. Hasn’t he been playing in the UK already? Expecting Wes and Maru to pitch up and immediately fire is ridiculous. You would also expect Nick Welch and even Naqvi to be in there if he is part of the plans. This is...

Re: 4th T20I | Zimbabwe vs India | July 13, 2024

Faraz should actually try reinvent himself as a batsman who can smoke a few. That is the area where he has surprised me the most this year. Looks like he can actually play some shots. He is 30, Raza is 38. He has the resources and time. Try it at club level then domestic

Got a feeling they don’t have a set squad

Or, if as Jonty suggests that Makoni and ZC are in trouble with the SRC, then it may be ZC themselves who have backtracked and are now holding off selecting Naqvi to protect themselves, rather than the ICC holding it up?
This makes the most sense actually

ICC eligibility regs; https://images.icc-cricket.com/image/upload/prd/o6gtuccut4pumbxmbzgu.pdf Article 2, starts on page 4. Same Documents Page 5 on NOTES. All of those notes refer to article 2.1.3. To be clear, Naqvi and ZC are applying for him to be eligible under 2.1.2. Not 2.1.3. "at the date o...

Re: Test Match Squad for Ireland

The 11 I would go for is: Gumbie (wk) Masvaure Ervine (C) Bennett Myers Williams Campbell Masakadza Ngrava Muzarabani Nyauchi Bench Chatara Chivanga Kaia Madande Would like to fit Madande in but I don’t see where, Masakadza is a cert in that squad without Raza, they won’t trust Williams, Bennett an...

Re: 5th T20| Zimbabwe vs India| 14 July 2024

Leaving out Burl made no sense for this series. Nightmare series for campbell takes the team a step back and still no fast bowler to support Ngarava and Blessing. They should get clarity on Naqvi. Either he plays or he doesn't, you cannot have him in the squad with so much of uncertainty around. In...

Re: 5th T20| Zimbabwe vs India| 14 July 2024

In all the years we have watched this team I can tell you 4-1 is a good result. It has gone as expected.
