Even the Gurkas have been treated better.

You are very right. If everyone who had ever supported MDC or felt ‘unsafe’ in Zim had gone and claimed asylum, there wouldn’t be many people left here!

He’s absolutely played the system . He’s going to be top and I think there’s a strong chance he plays for England one day. The ECB will be all over him using him as their poster boy to paper over their own actual deep racist culture in the game there. No wonder theyve bent the qualification rules. See Archer.


I don’t blame him for playing the system but I can’t believe how easy it seems. If you’re the right colour and you make something up about protesting, quote a few things about democracy and freedom and equality and a few other buzz words and that seems to be enough? No wonder the U.K. is absolutely full of these guys from the third world. Muyeye won’t exactly be a drain to society because he’s smart both academically and sportingly - but you have to wonder about the U.K. as a country. It seems to be on a downward spiral.

I’m quite happy here thank you.

He's basically been a fringe player, clearly his season here and all that time he's spent in the middle has helped a lot and that innings will rightfully buy him some time in Firsts.
I think there will be a flood of guys wanting to come here next season.

I don't know if this has been mentioned before but Brydon Carse has Zim heritage. He is fast and nasty. There's also Dusty Melton who's really quick. We're ok in the seam department, but these two blokes can bowl 140 plus.

And will never represent Zim, so sho cares.
Carse is fast but does fuck all with it. He scraped an ODI fiver but honestly looked docile, regardless of the fact he his 87mph

Ten years scrabbling around in second eleven cricket struggling to make runs and struggling to take rare first class chances.

Comes to Zimbabwe and his game and confidence is transformed!

Surely a fantastic advert.
