Re: 2nd Test | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Harare

The U19s coming up are the best for a decade or so and people involved in the next batch are just as confident in them too. The only player we've really seen enough of to make any sort of call is Wes, and its still quite early in his career. Granted, some players develop their game very late in the...

Re: 2nd Test | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Harare

An "outsiders" perspective for whatever its worth: Zimbabwe sorely missed the senior guys who didn't play. Its probably something that will occur more and more frequently given they are all in their mid 30s now. Taylor, Ervine, Williams, and Raza will almost surely be retired by 2024. I suspect of t...

Bangladesh are only coming for 1 test now plus the 3 ODIs and 3 T20s.
That sucks. One off Tests barely allow any time to build a storyline. Better than no Test I guess.

Lets wait for an official confirmation.

Re: 2nd Test | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Harare

Both zimbos_05 and secretzimbo made some good points. I'll chime in once the series is over. Still and innings and a half left, and for young players a single innings can change the trajectory of their career.

Re: Blessing Muzarabani appreciation thread

He's done exceedingly well. I'd still rate Jarvis' body of work ahead of Blessing in Tests, but overall Blessing has done better (white ball heroics) and he's got a higher talent ceiling. I am excite to see how Bangladesh will approach him in a few weeks time.

Anyone on this forum would have good stats with side.
Still a bit harsh on Chakabva. An average of 25 is not terrible for a WK.

All in all a drawn first session I would say.

I wish BD seamers had as much control as the Zimbabwean quicks.

Re: 2nd Test | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Harare

It’s very hard to define considering how often the term has been used. I’d probably define it as ‘hits it more than a few times’. So if a player can do it at least every 3 or 4 or spells I’d add Cummins as a 145 player By your definition, Cummins is definitely a 145 bowler. I would certainly classi...

Re: 2nd Test | Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan | Harare

There are more in aus. - Meredith, Richardson, Cummins, starc, Hazelwood, stanlake, even one or two at grade level in my state. They can all bowl 145. Probably not all consistently but some could If they wanted to sacrifice control. It is largely irrelevant if you are 140 or 145, look at stanlake o...
