Re: Myers, Madhevere, Marumani and Shumba the future of ZimCricket

White Black white black white black....boring. How about sinply batter and bowler? I didn't see anything wrong with what he said. He's largely right that a black cricketer is more likely to stick around. At any rate, the 2020 batch of U-19 cricketers seems to be the best set ZIM have had since 2004.

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

Taskin and Ebadat bowling impressively here in the short spell before lunch. Both generating some serious bounce which was not on evidence in the first 2 days of the match. Its bouncing like the WACA out here! Taskin bowling in the high 130s to low 140s, while Ebadat cranking one up to a shade under...

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

Some tight bowling by SL on day 2, and some [overly IMO] defensive batting from Bangladesh erodes most of the advantages gained from day 1. This game has "draw" written all over it at the current time. Thats not to say a result isn't possible, as both teams love a good batting collapse, but the pres...

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

150 up for Shanto and first away century for Mominul!

These guys should bat sedately till lunch, but they need to up the tempo afterwards. Bat 5 overs past tea and then declare. But at the current rate, they will barely cross 500 by then, and they will likely need more than that.

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

Fantastic batting effort here. Its been a very long time since we've seen such a batting performance from Bangladesh. Its especially heartening to see a young batsman get going. Tamim and Mushy still have 4-5 years left I feel, but youngsters need to step up and Shanto can finally say that he's deli...

Ngarava has absolutely put on a yard of pace.
Must be 140 clicks now then. He was around the 135 mark before if I recall correctly...

Chakabva cost Zimbabwe 2 test matches in an important situation of the game one in Sri Lanka and the other in Bangladesh.

26 avg in Test 18 avg in Odi & 3 in T20I....seriously badluck for Moor
Remind me what happened in those 2 tests vs SL and BD.

He did help draw a Test vs Windies.

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

Tamim gone for a splendid 90 off 101 balls. Really needed to kick on, but 152-2 is a solid platform. This should be the real meat of the Bangladesh top/middle order here with Shanto (youth), Mominul (veteran), and Mushfiq (experience) taking the 3, 4, and 5 spots. Its up to Shanto on 53 not out to t...

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

BD going with an extra bowler, bold move I don’t mind it at all. Mehidy stepping up with the bat allows that. He's batting at 7 which is a good move IMO. Saif Hassan just isn't good enough IMO. He's a classic example of a domestic all star who is not international class (his first class average is ...

Re: Bangladesh in Sri Lanka 2021

Anyways I hope they select a decent playing XI. Quite decent XI picked for the first time in recent memory. Best part is no Mohammad Mithun. Worst part is Mosaddek Hossain continues his run of being ill, injured, or having a family emergency before every Test series: a touch of fate even Sean Willi...
