They'll pick Tiripano and Chivanga again anyway. You know it, I know it, we all know it :lol:
Exactly, I don’t know why we bother discussing it :lol:

Is there any wildcards for the series do you reckon?

Nyauchi is quite a good shout actually. He has improved a great deal in white ball cricket. He didnt do a lot in nepal mind. Maybe pitches did not assist the swing he gets

I see there are calls for Kohli to play against Zim to regain form. That's f£#&* rude. Hopefully he gets knocked over repeatedly for not much.

Yes, the fans and administration here doesn't seem to rate Zimbabwe much, that could play into the hands of Zimbabwe if there is complacency on the part of players as well.

Without Blessing Muzarabani and Chatara , the bowling attack looks thin though and if ever there was a time for the the fringe players to step up, it is now. Blessing is a world class bowler while Chatara's experience will be hugely missed.

He's not accurate enough to be a world class bowler.
Hes certainly tough to face, has plenty wicket taking deliveries, but he doesn't bowl tight enuf. If you want the luxury of bowling a a few wayward deliveries then you need to be bowling 150.
If we played enough games and our domestic batsmen could put away those bad deliveries more consistently he'd tighten up. I think there's room for improvement and I think he's good enough to do just that. Ditto for Ngarava, plus as I always say, he needs to get the inswinger to the right handers. The most consistent is Evans according to his domestic stats.
If we had two or three seamers that gave the batters very little in their spells then you've got the basis of a reasonable bowling attack.

It's the same for our spin attack. They'll all give you one shit delivery an over at best.
The difference between 5 good deliveries an over and 6 is massive.

Blessing is the 5th highest wicket taker in the Super League so far with 28 wickets in 15 matches at an average just under 23. Despite all this I still don't think we have seen his best version in a while.

And Sean Williams is averaging 55 in the Super League so far. Raza has more runs but he is averaging 35, his actual average. Williams must be averaging over 50 in the last 24 to 36 months, or maybe late 40s
