    A side note, I see it's not just the Cricket that sees some strange dismissals - a TV commentator was sacked after Zimbabwe were beaten at Football by Nigeria - the reason was for being unpatriotic (he praised an Okocha goal)

    If that happened in England the commentator would have his ex-employers in court for unfair dismissal quicker then Notts County drop through the English lower leagues.

    Its not much of a new name, theyve just subtracted a word. How imaginative of them.

    Agreed. At a point where more skilled test teams are required in order to prevent the competition becoming too lopsided and predictable, Zimbabwe is instead trying their best to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    My heart goes out to Tatenda Taibu. He is only 21 years of age yet the weight of Zimbabwe's cricket (not to mention political) aspirations rests on his small shoulders.

    Since this whole fracas began late last year he's managed to lead by example and score 378 runs at 31.5 (including an 83 against the West Indies). Not bad for someone who has to bat, keep and captain a side choosen more because of their colour than their talent (that is no criticism of the players who are pawns in Mugabe's game)

    It'll be worth about £2.99 anyway, I can give you a long winded explanation about hyperinflation and the neutrality of money if you want.

    My heart doesn't.. He's got the most stable job in international cricket... And at least he is allowed to play it..

    60,000 Zim dollars will probably buy you a couple of loaves of bread...

    Apart from Langeveldt's comments (which I completely agree with), don't you think that perhaps it helps that a) he's the "right" color, and b) he didn't support the rebels? Not that I wish him any ill-will (because I don't), but what's with all the heart-rending sympathy for his "plight"?

    Yeah thats what I thought... I think the guy is great and wish him all the best.. But if you want to cry a river for someone, go do it for someone like David Houghton, Olonga or one of the Flower brothers.. All that toil, for this... Or Sean Ervine, promising beginnings, never? to play international cricket again, because of the colour of his skin...
