Matigimu still looks quick but a bit wayward so far, quite a few wides and missing his length. Maybe rusty. I wonder what the story in SA is and why it hasn’t worked out?

That's massive for zimbabwe cricket that he is playing.

He is ngaravas age I believe so still has a good few years left in him 😃😃

Well he's 26. 10 years minimum.
There's pressure on the seamers and seaming all rounders-
Faraz, Luke and Brad.
Plus, like Faraz he's got cash to throw at the problem :lol:

I see Lavert Masunda is back. Welcome back.
He broke his thumb badly a while ago. Nice player, good guy.

Hope matigimu is not injured. He only bowled 3 overs.

Wonder what lured him back to zimbabwe? More test cricket over next few years, World cup?

Absolute crap that they keep going back to Faraz and Chatara. Why can't they try someone new, surely there is someone doing better than these two?

Anybody else remember when Chris Mpofu didn’t know how to hold a bat :lol: he has hit 2 50s in a row including 95 not out. 7th in the run charts :lol: I don’t know if the standards that bad or he has aged well with bat in hand.
