I can't wait to see this batting line-up. I'll be scratching my head if Burl is not at least at 5.
Jongwe will definitely play. It will be out of who's been hitting their lengths in the nets between Chatara and Ngarava.
The bowlers will surely be
Mazarabani
Ngarava/Chatara
Jongwe
Masakadza
Williams
Burl
Raza
Madhevere?
Batters -
Ervine (capt)
Then we need two from Chakabva, Kaia, Marumani, Shumba
I have no idea :lol:
I see Shumba sitting out, but who's the other?

The reality is that neither Blessing nor Ngarava are that accurate or that quick and don't have great slower balls :lol:
Blessing does have some great wicket taking deliveries though, and Ngarava is a leftie, but at some point needs to get that in-swinger to the right hander going.
Their height and bounce will probably cause some batters problems, but you'd think spin will play a bigger role. Just depends on what wickets they prepare.

We should not be posting 140 totals against these sides, we need to be 180 plus.
They both bowl 140+ dont they? That alone is enough to cause problems surely. But yeah you guys are probably right.
BM can bowl up to 143-144...but he's usually low to mid 130s. Don't think Ngarava has ever hit 140 but he can go high 130s.

Ngarava had a quicker effort ball than Muzarabani in both Ireland and Sri Lanka from what I remember

Ya he can really let them go, makes you wonder why he rarely ever gives it 100%.

Raza was not at today's opening ceremony with the rest of the squad....

...Injured? Covid?

Let's hope not.

It's likely just related to the Muslim event happening this weekend

I think our bowling attack is pretty good when ngarava and blessing are firing on all cylinders.

I remember the trundler days of taurai muzarabani payangara and co. At last we have some bowlers with a bit of venom. It should come in handy against the lower associates

Yeah, some bags from the big bowlers should happen. Wellington needs plenty of dots. I'd have Shumba in the mix ahead of Kaia

Thats a very good call actually. I woukd like to see Shumba opening maybe with marumani or madhevere. If it doesn't come off we have the experienced core of ervine williams raza and Chakhabva in middle order

Namibia and Netherlands look good. Those semi-finals won't be as easy.
