That zimbabwe will not qualify for 2023 WC is almost a given, neither do I think any new team will, it will be exactly the same set of 10 teams that played in 2019.

But then who knows? Strange things have happened in cricket when you least expect them!

I think WI have real potential to miss out in the qualifier. They wouldn't have qualified last time either if it wasn't for some exceptionally bad umpiring that went in their favour.

You are right SZ, actually Afghanistan have got Zimbabwe's number, there is a greater possibility of ZIM beating WI or SL than beating AFG.

No disrespect to SL but I think ZIM does fancy pulling an upset win over them or WI more so than over AFG these days.

The bigger problem atm is that for WI to drop down to below 8, RSA will have to win some games against really good sides in the next 8 months.

I hope he does come, and I hope he fails - it will be so hilarious :lol: :lol: :lol: Nearly three years since he scored a century in international cricket. How many has Sean Williams scored in that time? 4? And he's probably played a quarter of the matches.

If that doesn't fire up the Zim bowlers then nothing will.
That's a double glove slap.

Ya that doesn't surprise me at all, Zimbabwe's reputation has hit rock bottom in the world of cricket. Even below Ireland tbh.

I think Brendan was the last of the well recognized and respected ZIM player, now some people know about Muzarabani and Raza, otherwise casual fans don't even know ZIM players names.... A big change from the times of Flowers, Streak, Campbell, Johnson, Olonga, Blignaut .. common names on a fans known list.
