Ireland will create more worry and will be a giant killers, once their foreign recruits clear their visas & passport issues, which at present seems only barier for their Ireland national call.

My prediction from a couple years ago was ZIM would be fighting tooth and nail with Ireland and Netherlands to avoid being last in the SL.

This will be the first huge challenge for not just the Big 4 (Taylor, Williams, Ervine, Raza) but also the new Big 5 (Madhevere, Myers, Marumani, Musakanda, Muzarabani).

If the top ranked side from League 2 finshes the World Cup Qualifier ranked ahead of the 13th SL team, they will replace them in the next SL cycle.
True mate, Zimbabwe have got their work cut out. Will be interesting to see if they can step up. I hope they do.
Isnt the Super League going to be cancelled with an expanded world cup after this cycle? It wont make any sense after that besides being a champions trophy qualifier.

As for Ireland let's wait and see. They have a long way to go. You didnt see people here saying Zimbabwe is back when they beat Pakistan in Pakistan last year to claim 10 points.

Consistency is key and as far as I can see Afghanistan and Ireland have got a long way to go before they get to Bangladesh or Sri Lanka's level. You have to be able to consistenly compete(not necessarily win) in any conditions for you to get to that level.

The 1 off test between Afghanistan and Australia will show what I mean if it still takes place. It's going to be ugly judging by what I saw a few months ago
What even is Sri Lankas level lol

No matter the results. Irish team has been phenomenal against Proteas. A neck to neck fight great to watch.

Sour fucking grapes from a mediocre wicket keeper.
I know damn well who I would rather have behind the stumps if I was Graeme Smith, if I had AB in the squad. This guy is just bitter because he was in the shadow of a South African great and, surprise surprise, he plays the race card. Pathetic. Get a grip

They were terrible and completely outplayed in 5 of the 6 matches. 'Great to watch', although I'm 99% confident you didn't actually watch any of it.

Try to appreciate what others do which you can't do

Proteas confirmed a 3 ODI and 3T20 tour of Srilanka in September. ODIs are part of WSL.

Thami was also a match fixer. The race card is the only one he could play because he has no credibility otherwise.
