Re: Andy Flower: ICC Hall Of Fame Inductee

Now I know people will talk about the quality of the opposition but cricinfo breaks it down nicely these days. Quality and context are ultimately important. Flower averaged 35 in an era where 35 was a world class average. Good batsmen averaged 30. We're now in an era where the best batters average ...

This link says "all matches will be played in Harare". So looks like no Test at Queens.

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Wrong. As a fan I am 100% watching an A series with intent. I want to see if the young players are up to the task and how they handle certain situtations. What happens when they are under the pump? What happens when they are in a good position? How do they handle a turning a pitch? A slow pitch? a ...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

I guess zimbos was right...Wez is just not ready for red ball cricket. At least there are several fellow young batsman there to give 1 or 2 a chance while the Big 4 are still around. What you want to avoid is a situation where Wez, Myers, Shumba, et al become the core of the Test or ODI lineup with ...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

This is the wrong mentality. Winning at the lower levels is as important as at the highest. When you learn to win from a young age, you breed success. It is completely wrong to just be like, "it's only an A game so it's not as important" The players themselves should absolutely play every game to w...

Re: Inaugural ICC ODI World Cup Super League | Tournament Thread

Netherlands with the series win vs Ireland, 2-1. Really makes things interesting at the bottom of the table.

It's going to be very tight and may come down to NRR.

Flat decks will really be the death of us. They a totally mad to explain themselves here because the pitches are rarely flat for domestic games
Results aren't really important at the A team level. There are no points or ratings at stake.

Re: 2nd Unofficial Odi | Zimbabwe A V/s South Africa A | Harare

Tanzim is still a junior U-19 player - I'm not even sure if he got picked up by a Dhaka Premier League team this season...but I think he's got something about him, and he was clocking 135-139 even as a 17 year old last year, so I suspect his pace will increase a bit over the next few years. Turns o...

Re: 2nd Unofficial Odi | Zimbabwe A V/s South Africa A | Harare

Thats brilliant news. To have young lads who can bowl with some heat is exciting! Rubel still knocking about? His test bowling average is awful but last time I saw him bowl he sent down a 91mph rocket Rubel is not terribly old (31 or 32) but he's lost a bit of pace, and the think tank is moving on ...
