I think some people have missed this, so posting again;

We had three T20I's scheduled in SL too. They have been cancelled because SL now need to depart for Australia earlier then envisaged (quarantines etc).

So this was supposed to be a lengthier tour.
Thanks for clearing that up, hopefully we can get a few games against Sri Lanka A while we are there? The thing is, we have a young team that needs as much cricket as possible if they can ever dream of being adequate replacements for the Taylor generation

Yes, now I can see that the games are confirmed on cricbuzz. 3 ODIs on 16th, 18th and 21st Jan at Pallekelle.

I'm not very happy though. Should have played more games, could have started a bit early.

Afghans better come, all that omicron shit is an excuse they want to give for their players to play in PSL.
I'm sure Blesing won't be happy if he misses the PSL too. Its a well paying gig. This is more to do with the Afghan players having more power than the board for me. A few mistepps by their board and all those guys will retire. They probably make way less playing for their country. Its a balancing act. They won't get a long rope like we did in 2004 if all those guys retire. People want them gone. Aren't they supposed to come in December too?

Reporter here mentions that we have about 10 tours lined up this year COVID allowing. Add 2 qualifiers plus a world Cup (hopefully) and we will have lots of cricket to look forward to in the next 18 months

Suggesting Afghanistan have confirmed they are coming end of January. A 3 ODI tour can be done in a week, 10 days max. It will be interesting to see what happens

With the way the world is going RE Covid-19, T20 leagues etc, we need a large pool of players, including second string bowlers to pick up the slack should Muzarabani and Ngarava become unavailable due to T20 commitments or Covid-19 exposure. Nyauchi, Chivhanga etc have to be kept in the picture, getting international exposure.

I can’t believe Rajput is still the coach, I thought his results suggest that he hit the road. Isn’t Dave Houghton supposed to be the guy now??

Afghans and Dutch will surely play Zimbabwe sooner or later in 2022 because they will also think this is a good opportunity for them to get WSL points. So I'm dead sure those series' will happen.

Afghans will desperately want their best players to be available though and will agree accordingly.

Latest is that the Netherlands series is likely to be at the end of July after the T20 Qualifier.

Australia and England are continuing with the Ashes despite positive cases within the squad now (Travis Head) and the BBL is going on despite positive cases within the squad of certain teams.

Finally the cricketing world has come to terms with covid being here to stay and we just play on, or will there be double standards as usual and pull outs from tours involving smaller cricketing nations?

I hope it's the former, that the world finally moves on by just isolating the player. This will give a great chance for Zimbabwe, and others to play out their full schedule of matches for 2022.

Let's hope for the best folks and a very Happy New year to all of you!

Afghans will always be looking to play ZIM I feel. They will want the SL points just because you never know how the iCC changes the scoring system due to so many COVID cancellations.
