Afghanistan seem a good spin bowling outfit.

Afghanistan are probably going to try crack some test matches now to get more attention. Their first task will be to demolish us in December. Their fast bowlers are quite good now so we might be in trouble. Will be an interesting series
Yeah I think once the world cups are over by the end of 2023, the Afghans will turn their focus to red ball cricket. They want to be a real cricketing nation, and with the increased ICC events (world cups every 2 years), they will have the money to play 4-5 Tests per year. They will surely be looking to ask if Bangladesh can be in the WTC, why not them? The Irish probably have the desire to play Tests but can't afford it, and so they aren't even trying, which is a pity.

Ya all their bowlers are sharp, we're always going to struggle against their bowlers. When they played here last their seamers were really impressive.
They've got decent batters as well, but not a lot of depth.

Playing them regularly is a half decent substitute to playing big teams, but I don't see us beating them, it's a vexing problem. Imagine having Rashid Khan and Noor Ahmed as your spin duo, those guys are the real deal.

Yes, Fazal Haq Farooqi and Naveen ul Haq are quite decent, Fazal in particular is a very fine talent.

Their batters, Rahmanullah Gurbaz, Najibullah are both very good while longer formats, Rahmat Shah is pretty consistent.

Overall Afghanistan are developing into a solid team.

Ireland also became good team. twenty 20 worldcup is difficult against Ireland & Scotland. we can't win against westindies. zim should more focus on twenty 20 matches.

They are still not complying with the ICC Full Member Criteria though and should be banned. Idk why everyone in the cricket world just gives them a free pass. If it was us, we’d be banned quicker than you can say Fuck Womens Rights

So as i was just randomly scrolling through IG i found this guy‘s IG. It seems like he is from India for sure and he seems to follow a lot of Zim cricket. He is a fan (or a great troll) but yeah still a weird character:
