Fuck. This is extremely poor. To be expected though, considering we are missing 5 players through injury; Ervine, Williams, Raza, Burl & Wes.

Let's remember this is arguably a B team. Let's not panic.

Raza is out for a longer time after his surgery i believe. Ervine and Williams desperately needed.

Is there any update on Jarvis? Will he be back playing cricket again?

I agree. This squad couldn't hope for more. However I stick to my belief: the most Zimbabwe plays (in all formats) the sooner it will regain its international status.

Zim teams are catching up, they are definetely much better than a few years ago. Keep playing.

I'm hoping Raza is back for Bangladesh Tests. 2 months from now. Although I suppose even if he is fit, he will be very rusty by then. With Burl, Sean & Raza in the team we can do away with Chisoro and get an extra pacer like Chivanga in, or an extra batter.

Word locally is that Jarvis had lost interest, and that was before he nearly died in hospital a couple of months ago. I can't see him coming back now to be honest. Especially as Ngarava and Blessing are probably going to be stalwarts in all formats for quite a while. It's sad, I'd love to see Kyle back, but realistically it's probably better to focus on Chivanga / Nyauchi / Jongwe & Evans.

@secretzimbo what happened for Jarvis to wind up in the hospital?

I see it slightly more pessimistic.
This is a glimpse 3 years into the future when those guys are done.
Only Wes has the ability to grow but I don’t
Think he has as amazing an ability as some people make out.

People might kill me for this but the truth is Williams> BT. He just wants it more. Don’t forget Williams never ever got the BT bucks. He had disciplinary issues and they dropped him but here he is giving 150% every single time. Talent is only part of the equation
