Don't think he's ever been here before. Seems a UK product, possibly UK born - not sure.

Makes sense to take a look at him, I assume he'll be with the UK touring U25 squad this summer anyway.

I once mentioned that we will eventually start seeing diaspora kids. There was a mass exodus out of Zim between 2000 and 2004. Those kids born around then will start popping up. Whether it’s from the UK, Australia and South Africa. Most of them won’t play cricket but some will. Soccer is already benefiting from this but they are still shit for now but im sure they will improve.

Also surely they should have the squad by now. No way they are still doing trials

I think it's another month or so until they fly out.

Big runs for Campbell today. Caveat - it is a much weaker lineup for todays match - bowling attack he faced was Shara, Vezha, Nxumalo, Nungu, Muzondo.

Not overly sure what the point of these matches are. Is it to select the U25 squad? Is it a warm-up for India series? Why are some national (over 25) players playing but others aren't?

Zero rhyme or reason to anything as usual. It's all just such a huge mess. We are going to get destroyed by the India D team.

Am I right in thinking that the NPL starts this weekend? (15th)
