The only really nauseous thing was that you defend it.
I didn't defend it. I just denied it existed. Big difference. The Afghan team appeared to me to be underage if anything. At least the 4-5 lads that I saw. Of course I don't have any evidence, but the critical thing is that there is no evidence to the contrary.

Aside from the guy who has FC stats dating him as having debuted at 12 and the other guy who's played IPL and Big Bash? The evidence will be apparent down the road like Rashid Khan.
You whine about kicking the topic to death, it was finished, and yet here you are again. You're like Covid.

This may be one of the cleverest things you've said.

I agree. I mutate and evolve. And I'm relentless.

Zimdoggy (if still alive) will be happy I think

Just been told they offered the job to Shaun Tait earlier this year but he chose Pakistan.

Dale Steyn has now been offered an interview but there are some reservations from both sides

Steyn won't be available until June though due to an IPL gig. Which is a huge blocker for ZC apparently. They are keen to have someone start much sooner.

Two years in Pakistan vs two years in Zim? He should have spoken to Jason Gillespie. I mean Gillespie was even happy to live in KweKwe (so nice they named it twice).

Why was Gillespie no longer an option? Cracking bloke, knows fast bowling and cricket better than most and can claim he's an Aborigine if someone accuses him of being a racist :lol:

Happy to have a head coach who spends half his time in India, but insists that the bowling coach must be here from the start.

ZC things
