The world cup qualifiers strip was the best ever imo. This current one really looks pathetic.
It was definitely our best of late, but i think our best ever were early 00's. Some of the 90's stuff was iconic too. The 99 WC one was stunning too.

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

K-long was so frustrating and disappointing in the last couple of series. I'm finding it hard to forgive him. I'm not sure he's the future really. This is what worries me. K-long was the guy who everyone spoke about as having the potential and skill, but looking at him now he has just stagnated. He...

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

Oh I agree. We were discussing recently about supporting kids through their uni studies. I hear Dion Myers (massive talent. There are people on the scene who rate him higher than Wes or Murray or anyone) is off to uni later this year so we could end up in the same situation with him. But to be fair...

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

It’s a shame but I think it’s the right thing to do. ZC are insisting even the big 4 play domestic cricket when available now, or they won’t get picked either. I can see why australia can do just elevate someone straight into the national team, but as discussed our Logan Cup is weak and of a low st...

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

This will always be a weird one to me. It wouldn’t have taken Murray one month in Zim to walk into this team. Instead he has an accounting job. The PJ situation is very understandable but this one can’t be blamed on ZC alone in my eyes. You have to want it. If Evans and Chivanga had to play the dom...

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

But in 6 months we’ve seen ZC put on (short) domestic comps in all three formats, late into the autumn, at great cost despite not being required to due to covid. Would Makoni & Mukuhlani have done that a year or two back if they had the excuse? We’ve seen overseas zimbos invited en mass to return f...

Re: Team kit

I'm not a fan of the current kit by a long way, but yellow is part our colours, not gold.

Would be happy to see us go to a more red kit with some green in them and the black or yellow playing less of a role in the kit.

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

I get you. I’m just bringing out another perspective. Let me put it this way. Afghanistan without their star player and preparing the wrong pitch got beaten by Zimbabwe in 2 days. Rashid Khan comes back and puts in a shift of 99 overs and they win . This is how much star players mean to small teams...

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

What I’m saying is that there is no doomsday coming like what people are suggesting. At the very least we will be on the same level. I think we will actually get better because I don’t see Williams, Ervine and Raza retiring just yet. We just got trounced by Pakistan (yes i know, injuries all that j...

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

The problem we are seeing here is that there is a whole 3 or 4 generations of u19s who struggled to produce any real world class talent. From 2010 to 2014. Those guys have really failed to step up. That is What we are seeing now. Things were very bad then in terms of ZC management and its there to ...
