Just for some fun,
In the wake of the ‘emerging’ side that had some players who were anything but, who arr the players who started out with promise, but fizzled out worse than High Hefner’s erection when the Viagra wore off. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Current players only.

For me;
1. Chamu Chibhabha (c)
2.Tino Mawoyo (I had to double check that he was still an active!)
3 Richmond Mutambami
4. Sikander ‘Mystery man’ Raza
5 Tarisai Musakanda
6 Kevin Kasuza
7 Tino Mutombodzi
8 Richard Ngarava
9 Natsai Mshangwe
10 Chris mpofu
11 Tendai Chatara


I’ve no doubt missed a few.
I’ve also tried to avoid players like Maruma who never had any flocked of brilliance on the up. He’s just stayed consistently decent at Logan cup level and not international. Doesn’t count.

If we are just doing current, then Mawoyo retired a couple of seasons ago Doggy!

I’ve enjoyed his commentary in the Pakistan and Bangladesh series though. Hope that doesn’t decline too! :lol:
Did he retire? I though the was technically still playing?
True, I don't think he's ever announced retirement. But I mean he hasn't played for two years and seems like he has his fingers in a lot of different pies now; coaching, commentary and a foundation. Can't see him playing again tbh.

He's a smart guy and I think pretty honourable. ZC could do worse than getting him involved with something somewhere.
Yes, Tino told me himself a few months ago that he has retired from playing; he is now found in the commentary box!

I'd be inclined to include K-long in the list.

Not sure if Kasuza is declining. He is pretty much going along as ever.

He started off with a bang.
I have a vague memory of him hitting a 20 ball fifty or so in his debut year when he was a 16 year old or thereabout.

He also worked himself up to a test call up in the Sri Lanka series but couldn’t maintain it.
So you could pick him twice.

:lol: sure. He tends to have a good year and then a bad year. So he is constantly rising and declining I suppose

Tino now seems to be playing a stint in the Nairobi League in Kenya along with quite a few other Zimbo oldies!

Who else is playing in the Nairobi league? I saw a Neil Mugabe on a scorecard playing for Stray Lions.
Neil Johnson, Alistair Campbell, Murray Goodwin, Andy Flower (w), Grant Flower, Dave Houghton, Guy Whittall, Heath Streak (c), Andy Blignaut, Ray Price, Eddo Brandes

How did he manage that? Was he not in the commentary box in BD just a week ago for the NZ series? No travel quarantine requirements in Kenya? Did he directly travel there from BD?
