The Zimbabwe Cricket team have found Ebola in one of their members, but they're not concerned because they have also found Ebatsmen and Efielda!

Just turn this in to a thread where we can all cry together every year when we realise what could have been.

Our biggest loss was Sean Ervine, in my opinion. He was beginning to come real good around 2004, and 15 years later we all know how good he really became. Ervine (all-rounder), Nick Welch (Batter) Brad Evans (Genuine quick bowler).

The Curran brothers are the ones that makes me feel uncomfortable . Adding Sam and Tom to any format for zim instantly makes us a much much bigger threat:(

Also agree about ervine he was exactly what we couldn’t afford to lose , probably my 2nd favourite Zimbo and so so talented . So many ‘ what if’s ? ‘

Sam Curran had more chance of playing for Zim than Tom, as Tom played for Kwazulu Natal and was born in SA; he schooled in Zim for a bit I think? Sam actually played for Zimbabwe under 13's and 15's I believe, right googly?

And yea, Sean Ervine is one of my favourite Zimbabwe players as well. Something about him running in in that 2003/04 kit, with the blonde hair and whirling action. Same as Blignaut. A lot of the Zimbabwe lads had blonde hair in those days; even price had a tinge during the 2003 West Indies series.

Genuinely gets to me how competitive we could have been if the money was handled correctly and the players lost over the years had stayed. Think of all that talent we've lost.. :cry:

Forget the rebels for a minute, I'm talking about guys like Dylan and Ryan Higgins, Anthony Ireland, Friday Kasteni, Campbell Macmillan, Ian Nicholson, Lake, Sam Curran,
