No Chibhabha and Mutumbami - I think this is official confirmation their international careers are definitely over. Great news.

Not happy to see Kaia and Maruma but the rest are fine. Delighted to see Campbell and Madande included.

Evans deemed not fit enough/sharp enough unfortunately. Bad blood remains between ZC and PJ, although he hasn't done much to deserve a call-up anyway.

It really could be if they put effort into it and did it each year.

But no haha, half of the players in each team aren't even from that region. They are just random teams really.

Would have liked to see Evans and Moor but that's the way it is. Hope the best squad is selected.

Nothing bad blood between Moor & ZC. Moor is the victim of racial politics and has been dropped after scoring 141 runs in 6 matches in pro 50 whereas Maruma has been picked scoring just 78 runs in 5 matches.

Serious case of Racism in selection
Robo to rule :oops:

I know I'm repeating this, but I have a feeling that Brad Evans will be a brilliant addition to this side and will make a massive difference which can prove to be significant in terms of 2023 WC qualification.

Understand he is not fully fit as of now, but is he in the selectors plan once fit? That is one thing. Other thing is that is he himself willing to commit to Zimbabwe cricket?

He's committed. And he's on the selectors radar. As long as he doesn't go and play club cricket in the UK summer, he will play for Zimbabwe this year. I'm certain of it.
