Well we have blessing ngarava and chivanga who are very quick by zimbabwe standards to face Australia. Quicker than the mupariwa or payangara trundlers we have been used to from yesteryear anyway.


Im confident our pacers can docvery well in australian conditions.

Batters im concerned about

So we’ve got Namibia, Afghanistan, Qualifiers, Bangladesh, India and Australia all within the next 4 months. Finally lots of games
Just further to this, I've heard they are supposedly in contact with the Windies to organise a red and white ball 'A' tour later in the year as well.

The australia games will be brutal :lol: they could pick their 10th team and we’d still get fucked haha. But it’ll be fun seeing us tour their anyway.

And the T20 World Cup.. 😁

Aussies are skipping WSL games against Afghanistan and South Africa, how can they be allowed to do that?

Not sure. They are looking at around late September/early October apparently. Hope this is true. Red ball ‘A’ fixtures in particular would be exciting and interesting

I’m amazed they aren’t skipping us! Great news

The demise of the super league is just about the worst possible thing for teams like us sadly. These fixtures are golden

This is actually all I'm looking forward to. The fast bowlers. It will be a real chance to show what they got but also at the same time a real challenge because the Aussies face far deadlier bowlers in the nets. Otherwise its going to be a massacre.

It will also be a good experience for Wes and Shumba

Yes from that point of view, it is true, although I'm hopeful we will have a slightly balanced FTP for next cycle and not the same crap it Big 3 playing 10 series against each other.

I think Aussies will slot in South Africa somewhere because they are playing against them, just that not playing the WSL games which is very strange, I think those games will happen.

I don't think Aussies are keen on playing Afghanistan in any format and I don't see that series happening.

Aussies are in fact playing South Africa for the WSL games.

They have deliberately left out Afghanistan. Well, in the context of WSL this is not a bad thing for Afg as they would have lost those 3 games, and not a good thing for SLN/WI who are still trying to squeeze into the top 8. Aussies seem to be taking a strong stand against the Taliban govt.

They did that against SA, Zim and various, but their own track record is not the greatest. Pot kettle.
