Re: Zimbabwe Vs Namibia | 1st T20I | 17th May 2022

Wes is way too technically gifted to just be a slogger trying to desperately hit every ball in the first couple of overs. He's classy and would be better in the middle order. Marumani is the big hitter you need up there. Why do we need 4 specialist seamers on Zimbabwe's slowest pitch though? Defini...

Re: Zimbabwe Vs Namibia | 1st T20I | 17th May 2022

I agree that Madhevere does a good job at the top of the order. 20 odd off 12 every match gives us a great start to the innings, I prefer that to a slow start where we end up 2 down anyway because of pressure. I would make 2 changes to the 11. Evans and Nyauchi in for Tiripano and Chivanga. Unfortun...

Thanks mate. And the commentary on the Youtube stream is always ahead of the visuals,

Tino Mawoyo: Oh what a nice shot

Bowler: Still in his run up

:lol: :lol:
I know it’s really frustrating. I just mute it now.

I’m used to the domestic season being dead silent anyway :lol:

Re: ZIMBABWE vs NAMIBIA T20I

The bowling attack concerns me. Knew the big names weren’t going to be back in time. My 11 then:

Marumani
Chakabva
Madhevere
Ervine
Shumba
Raza
Burl
Evans
Masuku
Chatara
Nyauchi

Raza and Madhevere will have to take the primary spin role. Hoping for seam friendly conditions.

Re: National Premier League (NPL) 2022 | 17th April - 15th May

Based on what? He has not played cricket at any level for nearly 8 months. Based on his batting performance today :lol: No he is just so talented and If he wants to come back then I think we should get him in and not let him go away again. I struggled picking 15 in the other thread and although it ...

NEWS! Dion Myers has appeared and is playing for Takashinga today!
Best news I have heard in a while, I’d be tempted put him straight in the Namibia squad if available.

Re: Zimbabwe XI to Play South Africa "A"

The Chivanga delivery and wicket at over 4.2 of the south africa innings was a sight to behold. A proper bully boy snorter that rose from a length alarmingly. Only blessing can so that sort of thing or so i thought. Chivanga could be special Still don’t like him, but I have got to admit it was a be...

Re: Zimbabwe XI to Play South Africa "A"

The worst thing about this display is, barring Mutombodzi, this should be our strongest batting lineup :oops:

Why is mutumbami playing as well? Playing 3 bowlers plus Raza and Madhevere is just not sensible.
