Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Or gotten out playing those shots. That's the wrong attitude. Can't be going to bat thinking, "if i play a shot, i will get out". This is where players need to change the attitude and develop the game. They need to go out there thinking that they can score runs off most balls, even if it is just a ...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Sub-national teams (A teams) are usually ad hoc. They serve a purely developmental purpose and while selectors will try to create a balanced side, at the end of the day A team cricket exists solely for giving prospective national teamers quality game time. So if that means packing the team with spi...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

The players themselves should absolutely play every game to win whether its an international, A team game, domestic match, or U-19 level. But the fans really should only care about the national team performance, at the end of the day. Everything else is just a means to that end. Wrong. As a fan I a...

Re: First unofficial Test : ZimbabweA vs South africaA

Results aren't really important at the A team level. There are no points or ratings at stake. 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 ...

Is it now a requirement that players have to have a certain hair style to play for Zim.

Re: Team kit

Zim rugby is nothing in the world scene. Apart from being ranked around 59 and well outside the World Cup scene, they can’t be that great if even Australia is a top ten rugby nation despite it being a niche, all but dead game there. I guess buying up kids from the islands and good old boys sponsors...

Re: Team kit

I know multiple rugby players. They play for the love not money. I have even said it multiple times here that if the rugby guys had ZC money and salaries they would easily qualify. Not just about the board but also because of the heart. ZC is not to blame for everything. They are one of the best pa...

Re: Team kit

Re: Team kit

The Rugby boys always seem to get it right. https://blksport.co.za/collections/zimbabwe-rugby They've been doing a lot right for a while now. They've got some International based players back, and players who had no interest in Zim come back knocking. They've brought in quality coaches too. Pocock ...
