I think someone had said that he had a suspect action here, years ago. Was that zimfan1 or Googly? So, if he can't bowl, then his utility and goes down massively. But what about all those bunch of wickets he took domestically? Similar to Querl. That meant another genuine bowler could not make a case for himself...

Why isn't Roy kaia near the odi team? His first class bowling stats for one days are respectable. Has anyone seen him bowl live?
Local 'eyes' have said his bowling action is very suspect, and would likely get called.

His batting has been inconsistent throughout his career as his average suggests, I'd say if he could have performed better with the bat he would have gotten a chance. Tinotenda Mutombodzi has probably taken the chances Kaia may have deserved.

Yes, thanks, but I thought jaybro was also quoting someone who mentioned it earlier here, I feel.
