Re: State of SA

200% ZC could buy their way to international competitiveness Buy two openers, a spinner and a fast bowler and we push top 5. For me I would throw money at ballance, Markram and Welch and that Melton kid Believe me, ZC has no money to throw! They can't even pay their own employees; they are two mont...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

As much as I agree with some of this Googly, Jarvis's wedding is still poor. Could have had it in winter .some Club cricketers have weddings in winter lol. he is a high paid player. Then again, you get winter tours, and usually the itineraries for these are announced only a few weeks before the tou...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

The problem caused by scheduling vacations or weddings during the cricket season is often that these arrangements have to be made in advance, and the players so often have no idea of the dates when the cricket will be played - like right now! We heard that cricket, probably the Logan Cup, is schedu...

Re: Logan Cup 2020 - 21 : Discussion

But yes scheduling vacations during the first class season is poor, it would be slightly frowned upon in club cricket.

Re: Elton Chigumbura to retire from international cricket after Pakistan series

Does anybody know when the Logan Cup is due to start? No idea! It's probably the same situation as last year - ZC have no money left, and they are waiting for the next ICC handout to enable them to start. They told me they never know exactly when the next handout will be arriving, so they can't pla...

Re: [ ICC World Cup Odi Super League ] Match 3 : Zimbabwe V/s Pakistan, Rawalpindi

I like this league system where everyone plays each other. Will spread the talent a bit when players don't seek green pastures and other players will actually try and qualify for smaller nations. As for Chisoro. I don't get why everyone loves him so much here. Despite today's effort, we have three ...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

So this is where all the white cricketers are these days, the Harare Friendlies League. aka. Salisbury Friendlies League, including one team of Rhodesian Doctors. Not actually Rhodesian Doctors - it is called Rhodocs (I played for them) and the name was coined when the two clubs of ex-Rhodes Univer...

Re: Ryan Butterworth comeback discussion

I was trying to think of who else could be in the discussion for best player to never play international cricket. Steve Trenchard was the other name I thought of. Given at times it seems almost everybody who can hold a bat has played at least a random T20 or randomly opened the batting in a Test fo...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

Zimdoggy is 100% correct about the Nick Welch situation, his focus is on country cricket at the moment and trying to see what doors will open up England wise. I am sure he was trying to avoid any conflict when speaking to John. In regards to Murray, family members have told me quite clearly that he...

Re: National Premier League 2020 ( NPL )

Nick Welch is on 50* for The Kings, class act as expected whilst no other batsman can get past 30. I spoke to Nick today and he hopes his international cricketing future will lie with Zimbabwe, although he has a two-year county contract ahead of him. This is great news. Just out of curiosity how do...
