Haven’t we learnt that the part time spinners are only dangerous on pitches that offer lots of turn? On flat or slow decks that don’t offer them the assistance they aren’t as effective and worse they go for lots of runs.

Raza & Burl are the best part timers Zim have and they’re both injured, going in with Williams & Kaia would be a disaster. Chisoro got through lots of overs & kept it relatively tight at least so the seamers could bowl around him.

As for the batting there really aren’t many other options at the moment so Tari to open & Williams into the middle seems the only change. I’m surprised Sloan thinks Shumba should open in Tests! For me he’s a middle order guy perfect for 5 or 6. But Sloan has played a life time of cricket & I’ve never lifted a bat, so maybe he knows more than me 🙃
Didn’t you play lower grade at south Sydney or somewhere in that vicinity?

Interestingly enough I just read an interview where BT backed Stuey and said the batsmen are not applying themselves after all the hard work Stuey puts in with them. They didn’t even ask him about Matsikenyeri. He brought it up himself . Hondo for me is the most questionable

I hope Taylor is including himself in 'the batsmen'

No no definitely not, born and bred in Penrith & only ever played Rugby League & Union. I’ve probably watched more cricket than anyone I know but apart from a couple of fill in games of indoor cricket I’ve never played.
