any updates? I don't see us getting close. Saul had a start, which I'm relieved about because I rate him. Once again DB should have opened with Taruvinga. Batting order is everything.

Saul top-scoring with a Zimbabwean century (39).

This is the level of competition we should have been exposed to. You either raise your game or sink. 4 practice games against these guys instead or Ireland would have been the make or break, it would have been good to know sooner rather than later. 2 beatings by these guys and then you see who's got the goods to raise their game.

We'll have to pray the old fellas from Afghanistan are tired on Sunday from their visa/travel troubles if we are gonna have even a slight chance.

So Bawa was at the toss, but if the ICC scorecard is to be believed, he didn't play? I hope he didn't pick up an injury in the warm-up or something?

We've clearly got some good bowling options, but the batsmen have got to sort themselves out - what exactly is Elton doing?

How does a non playing captain do the toss? That can't be right, surely not? We need a scorecard

We're a full member with a big budget. It's bullshit not to arrange at least 2 pre tournament tours against decent opposition. 432 games against club cricketers, 4 games against Ireland and then a reality check. Don't blame the players!!
