What’s funny about Munyonga is that he was actually picking Hasaranga’s changes. I don’t know how but he was
I'll have to watch again. Just play him as an offie if you can't read him.

The issue with sweeping is most guys predetermine it and they'll get one pitched up that goes under the bat. It's such a tough shot to play well consistently.

Bennett was great. He is not shackled by tyebpast but batted as a free spirit as you need in short format.

Would love to see matt welch J Campbell and naviqi in this side

Bennett played some great shots. Got a couple of slot balls which helped. He's rightfully bought himself some game time. They saw him camping on his back foot last game and bowled fuller and he dealt with that as well. His dismissal was there to hit as well, just miscued it.

Let's see him bowl a couple of overs, the game is long gone.

I think they'll persevere with the musical chairs. Some players only need one good game in 20 for the selectors to feel smugly vindicated. Easiest gig in world sport is being a Zim selector, zero pressure ever. Don't forget they'll think Wes will have sorted his head out and be ready for another 2 years stint.

The tail, which was key to the successful match three days ago is the one that is most of the times extremely disappointing.
Today the middle order too.

Apart from Brad Evans (anyone knows when he will be fit again?), all players in this tour are the best that Zimbabwe can obtain.

The individual skills are not missing, what is missing is continuity at good standards: too many ups and downs, especially when you are supposeed not to choke.

I read someone was suggesting a psychologist.... Rather than a psychologist I'd prefer a charismaic coach, someone with proven leadership skills. Not necessarily to be Zimbabwean citizen.

I wonder if they’ve started recruiting for a coach yet? I haven’t heard anything. They don’t appear to have even put the feelers out yet?
Maybe the intention is just to appoint someone internal like Chawa or any of the other various old hands on a permanent basis?

There still appears to be no action or no plan to improve things.
Ya my guess is they'll keep Walter there but will keep calling him the interim coach, it will be a lot cheaper.

It's the committee findings that has me on the edge of my seat :lol:
I hope it’s a comfy seat because I think you’ll be waiting a long time :lol:

Poor shot selection that’s all today. No one got an unplayable delivery, maybe only Richy

Bennett did well. We’ve rarely seen that sort of strike rate up top. Threw his wicket away though!!
That'll do wonders for huis self belief, just the fact he was thrown in at first drop and killed it.

I dont know, but if you go to his instagram, a couple of days ago he was jet skiiing and going rafting, a week earlier he is doing backflips in a pool.

If he is injured, you'd have to think he is just about back to fitness. Weird choice of photos and videos, almost like he is challenging the unfit diagnosis.
