Re: Test Match Squad for Ireland

Regardless squad components the pity is going to Belfast for an only Test. (At least) a second Test would have better amortized the overheads without too detrimental additional cost due to the second Test. The other issue would be the notoriously "sunny" Belfast: it's a not at all remote risk that t...

Re: 3rd T20I | Zimbabwe vs India | July 10, 2024

Very disappointing to say the least. I was OK with the thrashing in the last game, that was bound to happen in one of the games, but it cannot happen in all the 4 games. I hope they pull up their socks and do better in the last 2 games. Just one more win and I'll be very happy. In my opinion the gl...

Re: 2nd T20I | Zimbabwe vs India | July 7, 2024

A win to be glad, then a massive loss just the following day. I didn't expect a win, at all. So it is something I'm truly glad. I expected massive losses, with 100 runs difference. What I don't care is the witch hunt to the players who (apparently) sank the ship. I care even less for the local Zimba...

Re: Antum navqi and passport

To be honest I would take him. That is just my personal view though, purely because I want Zimbabwe to do well and I think he will strengthen the side. He probably will strengthen the side. But then again there are literally of hundreds of cricketers around the world who would improve the side and ...

Re: T20 WC 2024

I remember watching Fazal Farooqi at HSC a few years back. I think it was his debut. The crowd was taunting him for a bit but within 30 minutes he had shut everybody up. I think it was just before DH came back. Quality bowler As for the Proteas this might be the moment. It’s a bit concerning that t...

Re: T20 WC 2024

Nah, it’s bollocks. South Africa were banned for 20 years for their government sponsored inequality. Afghanistan should be the same. This isn’t something casual like quota selection policy, it’s outright discrimination and in contravention of ICC regulations saying full members should have a women’...

Re: T20 WC 2024

Andrea coming across as a wife beater here. C'mon.... I prefer to answer you about the money. If ICC states how money is to be allocated and part of it is for women cricket, then whoever is not spending money by the rules should not receive that tied quota of money in the future. This does NOT mean...

Re: T20 WC 2024

Afghanistan beating Australia is a feel good story until you remember the Afghanistan Cricket Board willingly enforces the Taliban's stone age policies around women. The silence of the men's team regarding the banning of the women's team is incredibly disappointing. If South Africa could be banned ...

Re: T20 WC 2024

The pitches have made this the best T20 tournament ever. I'm actually engaged in the proceedings, unlike the IPL where my eyes glaze over at the sight of another SIX. I agree. Last IPl boom boom cricket got ....boring. Much better low score contested matches rather than counting sixes every other b...

Re: Ryan Higgins Turned Down Zimbabwe Approach

Burns has committed himself to playing for Italy with a hope to qualify for the next World Cup, I believe you have some pre qualifying tournament coming up soon? The tapeball thing is banter because you used to mention it in every post like Googly does with that high performance centre ran by BT an...
