So,

Good news 1: Chatara and Burl are back from injury
Good news 2: Chisoro is back in favour
Good news 3: Madziva and Jongwe are back in favour too, after forcing their way in with performances
Good news 4: Shumba and Jonathan Campbell get a look in along with Madhevere, after impressing domestically this season
Good news 5: Marumani in, Maruma out

Problem 1: 18 and 17 people respectively in the squads. What is the point really?
Problem 2: Elton Chigumbura!!! :evil: :evil: :evil:
Problem 3: What exactly has Tinashe Nenhunzi done to warrant selection? And Faraz Akram?
Problem 4: There is no keeper other than Chakabva in the first squad, so he'll play all the games. Why him at all in this?
Problem 5: Why Chari, Ndlovu and Shingi Masakadza? And why Nyathi at all?
Problem 6: No Myers

18 strong squads is so that 7+7 players feel important and that it’s been worthwhile going without pay for months and further months to come. They may get a T shirt, cap and a lunch on game day as well. Bulawayo is Singo territory, so it’s unlikely though. :lol:

If anyone was still wondering if it's picking favourites, this confirms it.

The 2 Masakadzas, Elton, Chari, Regis....

Absolutely ridiculous.
Too be fair there aren’t many players around to choose from

Nyathi is easily the worst 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️
They've announced a squad of 17/18. They really did not need that many. To top it off, if these guys play they are just taking that opportunity away from our youngsters and then we wonder why our players are not up to international standard.

ZC have decided to treat the squads selection as a ‘Thankyou for your service this year’ mentality.

Only problem is the counties are going to pummel us.

Tinashe Nenhunzi used to keep wickets in FC matches.

Not only a detective, he gives fucking ratings on teams fucking performance :D

And here his rating skills. Donald Tiripano 5 out of 10 in this test. Donald had average performance didnt got enough wickets but he bowled lots of maiden over :lol: Test fucks maiden overs... format is about taking wickets
Mamba and Stoneman once again backing each other up in posts, within minutes of each other, with the same mannerisms and the same broken English...
Cover me in sprinkles and call my surprised, I’m shocked. Just waiting for Robot next.

@BRMT, what’s the stance on duplicate accounts again?

That Chairmans 11 shouldn't be a pushover in a 3 day match. Should be a good contest. Will really tell us where we stand. Chance for Burl and Tari to really show us they are made for this
