Timycen Maruma

Post by eugene »

Test Average: 9.71 with 3 ducks from 7 innings
ODI Average: 11.52 from 18 ininngs, double digits reached only six times.
T20 Average: 11.11 from 13 innings, a high score of 23*.

Over a career spanning 2007-2021 Timycen Maruma has never played a consequential innings from 38 attempts. I think it is time to move on from Maruma, at age 33 he isn't going to get any better. He will never get a friendlier wicket and bowling attack in test cricket than what he just received vs Bangladesh and he failed miserably. Our lack of a middle order was the main difference between the two sides and Maruma must surely pay the price.

Well said.

All mental for him. A vicious circle that's probably now too late to fix.

Interesting to note that according to court papers Timmy was with Roy Kaia on that night the alleged ‘incident’ took place.

Friends that party together get ducks together!

Not a surprise, many have found themselves in Playing XI after peforming in useless warm up games and damaging the team in main game.

Cephas Zuhwao was smashing Kenyans before Qualifiers and was brought in the national team and later he turned to be average performer.

It was all over the press last year. Not sure what happened afterwards: https://www.hmetro.co.zw/cricketer-up-for-rape/
The trial of Chevrons player Timysen Hlahla Maruma who is facing
rape charges kicked of yesterday with the accused pleading
innocence.
Maruma, 31, stands accused of raping an acquaintance.
He appeared before regional magistrate Themba Kuwanda.
It is alleged that Maruma and the complainant both reside in Highfield
and on December 26 last year, the complainant was going home from
a funeral.
She was in the company of Maruma and another acquaintance she
only knows as Roy.
