Ervine is always slow with his bowling changes
Wonder why Macheka didn't open?

This Banks lad has got a nice smooth action. Looks like he's got something about him. Never seen him before.
He is part of last u19wc group, got many wickets too with them.

Why is this match today, on a random Monday, and not yesterday?

All the national players were available and played for e.g. Takashinga and Gladiators yesterday. But from today they are 'in camp' and Rangers are missing 5 players. Suspicious.

Chatara is in the India squad but allowed to play for Westside today whilst none of the Rangers national players allowed to play. :lol: :lol: :lol:

The sheer desperation to make sure the white and black Rhodesians don't win. You're seeing the true colours and the real problems we face laid bare. Would they resort to acid attacks, car bombing? :lol:

Stop the Rhodesians winning the NPL then try and buy bros who gapped it, old Ryan Higgins made the smart choice however :lol:

There’s as much consistency as everything else ZC related.

From what I have seen from the streams (credit to ZC for them) Arineshto Vezha has caught my eye in a domestic scene short of fast bowlers. Left arm fast, just missed out on Under 19 selection. He was involved in some of the under 25 matches so clearly on the radar. Hope he gets a chance in the first class stuff.

Victor Chirwa looks to have made a lot of progress with the bat, he has his action sorted now by the looks of things. Tariro Makauyo looks a decent player too but he needs to shed a lot of timber.

Ya the streams are a fantastic thing. They buffer all the the time which is annoying, but to be able to click on any game is just awesome. They make the umpires a bit more honest as well.
