This is what we yearn for as Zim cricket fans.

Sounds like there is an U19 tour coming soon?

Coming or going? U mean Zim are going somewhere?
That's waay to pro-active :lol:
There's a panic to now qualify.

I think theres some kind of internal matches happening next week - potentially some kind of domestic series with mixed teams consisting of U19 and U23 players or something?

And then gearing up for an u19 away tour (SA?) next month. I think. Will try and find out details.

Zim Rugby have their shit together. They have access to much less than ZC does and also appealing to a smaller base, yet they keep making strides in the right direction.

They've embraced the whites. Simple equation.

There's a crazy stat. The last West Indian opener to get a test 100 other than Braithwaite was Chris Gayle in 2013 and against Zim.

Dean has chatted to Dave; https://anchor.fm/dean-du-plessis/episo ... ON-e1kdcgs

Also a bit of chat with Reggie too. Worth a listen.

Good to hear their voices, especially Houghton's, I almost starting saluting, he's a no nonsense guy. Exactly what we need. Hopefully he has everyone's respect and won't take shit from anyone.
Very vanilla chats though, I suppose not much else to say.

Dean should have at least asked if there was a change in selectors, and if so, what?
And if the squad had been selected, and if so, who was in it?
And how Masakadza, Williams and Ngarava are getting on.
Who is the reserve keeper?
Plenty of other stuff to ask, but I'm sure there was some agreement beforehand.
I enjoy his podcasts, he knows his cricket, researches his stuff and is well respected. He gets some big names to chat to him and he prepares well for them.

Let's hope DH can get them to start posting information through the ZC media channels in a professional manner and not this cloak and dagger stuff through third parties. They need to start trying to run this place properly.
