We hear ZC not having enough budget to organize tournaments, no proper tv rights, logistics etc. Even with the pathetic admin, somehow our boys are getting some good game time.We had strong Derbyshire tour us, our emerging team was next to tour them, we had NPL, Logan,u-19 and now A tours. Some of these tournaments should really lift up our bars.
If our boys can play more foreign t-20 leagues and if we can initiate more bilateral tours with other stronger associate nations( with fanbase and money) like Nepal or USA, we could have a full packed year. The senior team has been busier with the fixtures. If the board can just do its basics right, then fixtures will come and money will float. Cricket in Zim is not that depressing or dead as some of the folks here are saying.

I don't doubt that things like the NPL and such are good ideas and we are seeing some change, but we have to be honest in that 4 match domestic seasons are not enough for these kids to be near the level they need to be for International. Even in Aus, national players will play home and away domestic comps, then also play club cricket, and even play winter leagues. Some of them even play indoor when not playing season.

My other gripe with Hammy is he could have made all this happen when he was a player, but he never did. Very self-serving.

As for the Jayden/Dane v Murray debate. I'm not sure Murray is coming back any time soon. Which is extremely sad. The ideal situation would be to have both as you need the competition too, and possibly one would develop better as a long format player over the other. Or you do what other countries do and have both of them play, just one of them is a normal fielder.

Oh definitely could have. He had plenty of opportunity, he just chose to turn on his team mates.

Yeah fair but I`d have thought he might have saw himself trying would be futile and it wouldve been better to change from inside ykwim
