Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

Nyauchi was absolutely brilliant whenever I watched him today - the way he ran in, the energy, the areas he bowled, the pace and the movement - he must be in the starting XI against BD for sure, with Blessing. Good effort with the ball for Madhevere. Hope this gives him the confidence to come good w...

Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

After a few initial overs of bowling hit me balls here and there, Chipungu seems to have settled in nicely. Impressive turn on day 1 pitch. But I'm more impressed with the pace he's bowling with. Ideal place to trouble the batsmen. Even Cremer was a bit too slow throughout his career. This guy is wa...

Re: 2nd Unofficial test: Zim A vs SA A

Nyauchi just got one of the openers caught at Gully and celebrated wonderfully! The guy seems to have a good heart for the game. That wicket taking ball s...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

We can keep harping about all the "history" of ZC and their handling of the players etc. But it is difficult to find much fault in general with them in the last few months. Despite the COVID situation, they have managed to arrange regular cricket - both domestically and for the national side, and n...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

I can understand the criticism of someone meandering along to a 20 out of 95 deliveries and getting out in a test match. The guy did not help the team after getting his eye in. But criticizing a 20 year old who scored 75 out of 250 or whatever is illogical. He is finding his feet - has got an opport...

Myers and Shumba out with concussions according to the match notes.
Oh no, here I was thinking that this was a masterstroke by ZC selectors to rest them to ensure they don't get injured.

Hope it is just precautionary and nothing serious.

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

I think we can cross that one off the list after the pavillion knocked his middle stump out of the ground, with Brian still holding the pose of his elegant leave. Yeah :D By the way, the fact that Myers earlier and now Shumba have been replaced could only mean that they are certain to make the squa...
