2nd T20I | Zimbabwe vs India | July 7, 2024

Post by 55727835 »

It's game day baby! My starting XI is largely the same. Wouldn't mind seeing Antum get a go despite the fact he's a loser.

1. Wesley MADHEVERE
2. Antum NAQVI
3. Brian BENNETT
4. Sikandar RAZA
5. Dion MYERS
6. Johnathan CAMPBELL
7. Clive MADANDE
8. Luke JONGWE
9. Wellington MASAKADZA
10. Richard NGARVA (Chatara if injuries require)
11. Blessing MUZURABANI

Is anybody aware of whether Naqvi can actually play yet? There were whispers his passport still didn't work itself out for the first game.

As I said, he has a citizenship, not sure the passport is an issue, he’s got four other passports if he needs to travel.
Nobody has said Knackers is a loser? Where did that come from?
A wealthy manipulator of a corrupt system yes, loser no.
Once again I’d like to see a few low scores from him in a winning cause. The number of initial chances he gets would likely be dependent on his first installment. Subsequent appearances may cost 100k ea if he’s not delivering :lol:
Price may vary a little, but at least one player there will know the approximate figure :lol:

I spoke to a couple of guys who watched India in the nets. Maphosa, Nungu and mubaiwa were getting them out repeatedly.

I don't think wealthy kids should skip the queue over deserving underprivileged cricketers. He knows damn well he's paid cold money for his place, and he shouldn't forget it.

Don’t change a winning side as they say.

Kaia was unlucky with a big inside edge which could have easily have gone to the boundary

Campbell was sold down the river

Bowlers performed out of their skin

I completely agree, it didn't buy him ability in the North Yorkshire and South Durham league. :lol:

Muzondo and mubaiya are two players who I'm surprised didn't make the cut for this squad. ..Actually no I'm not surprised as we have our other non spinning all rounder welly 😬😬.

Shumba up top against pace in place of Kaia? You don't want to meddle too much with a winning team.
