Taylors wicket was very unfortunate. I'm sure he has had some unfortunate dismissals in the past too, but they just seem to follow him.

Wesley looks so much better in the middle order. I think that's his spot and he needs to stay there.

Other than that, same old problems, same old issues, let's just keep going round and round in circles without actually fixing anything. Can't have batsmen not kicking on and not giving the bowlers anything to defend. That is just poor.

Not sure what happened to K-long. It's like he decided to join the boys club. So grew his hair like them and has decided to start playing like them too. This is a big problem because mediocre players are getting chosen which means we don't actually have a strong side and this is why we will always struggle to consistently compete against other teams. These mediocre players have one or two good games at domestic level, so they get into the national side and they are not up to it, so they play poorly and it affects the team overall.

When was the last time we had a full-strength side? We always seem to have a few guys out due to muscle strains, vacation plans, the flu, and disciplinary reasons. With our depth basically non-existent we can't afford to always be missing two of our top six players.

Yeah, when people make XI lineups choosing all of Williams, Taylor, Ervine, Raza as well as Blessing, Chatara, Myers, Madhevere, Marumani, it looks more like what we used to do in post-rebel era "what-could-have-been" XIs. Will we ever see them all in the same XI?

Wes I reckon should be at like number 4 or something with Myers at 3ish and Taylor opening. I say this because he cant find the boundary easily at the death like Brendan or the other seniors. Maybe move Marumani down as well? Get Taylor and Raza opening

Shocked to see most improved cricketer Tiripano not in the side. If he is given bit of confidence in domestic & A games, he can bat at n.o 4 for Zim in shorter format and provide some balance in the set up.

The BT decision was also harsh and cost us maybe 40 runs. Our own guys never ever have our backs but also at the same time with all his experience BT should have never found himself in that position.

Why BT ? He is doing the job for long time, rest seems doesnt have any liability to turn 30 s & 40s into big score.

What position? It was a freak accident. Not like he was deep in his crease and stepped back to play a shot. How can you blame BT for it.

Taylor was wrongly given out IMO. The ball was already dead & Taylor was fully balanced. He hit the wicket afterwards. (I am a Bangladeshi, so telling it from neutral point of view.)

Although the video is in Bangla. You just look at the videos & laws. Except Taylor incidence, all other was given not out.
