    **Official** England in Namibia and Zimbabwe

    Not long now..

    Big bit in the telegraph today bigging Namibia's cause up, they have a better chance of upsetting England than Zimbabwe at the moment. Apparently there is a lot of purpose down there.. And remembering the last time the two met it took an incredible run out to save England's skin.. AJ Burger on the riot. England should romp home, but it's all food for thought..

    Good for them.. If there is going to be any good come out of this tour, it will be at the beginning with the two one day matches. Hope for a good contest (certainly better than the rout predicted in Zimbabwe, which has been spoken about enough IMO)

    Anyway, my change in avatar is a shot back to the old days of cricketweb, when everyone had their favourite non test nation as their avatars!

    What about England in South Africa? Or will that get a thread of its own?

    Fair enough.

    England to win every game bar one. They've gotta drop one surely.

    I'll stick to Nemi. She's pretty and it saves me the bother of digging up the logo of the NCB (which from memory beats the FA's when it comes to blandness)...

    Oh, and England to beat Namibia by 120-odd runs.

    So why not have England have a crack on it batting second against India?

    England have already chased down far more challenging targets in the last 2 years. Australia now have the pathetic batting collapse scout badge instead of England, congratulations you've earned it.

    I hope Anderson does well in the series instead of Gough - who's just past it. Would be nice if the new batsmen do well so someone can take Solanki's place in the full strength side too.

    If England lose any game it will be one of the biggest upsets of all-time.
    But Namibia's recent destruction of Zimbabwe "A" (alias half the Zimbabwean first-XI) suggests they're at least as good as the first-team Zimbabwe.
    Hopefully the tour will provide no political problems and we won't get Vaughan and Solanki or any other substandard player getting a huge statistical boost, rather an average of 35-or-so and a sparing of embarrasment.
    Oh, and hopefully Gough will get 15 wickets at 2.5-an-over or so, just to annoy his detractors. And hopefully (sorry to say it, nothing against the two personally) Hondo and Panyangara will go around the park without getting any wickets.

    Jan-Berrie Burger looks a good player, it'd be nice to see him getting some more consistent exposure to medium-level cricket (ie South African First-Class\List-A-one-day scene), not totally sure about the rest. Gerrie Snyman seems to have a few admirers - apparently he's got a very good action and he doesn't look as wayward as some of the Namibians.
    Daniel Keulder won glowing opinions during the England-Namibia game but doesn't appear to have done much in his other limited chances. Be nice to see him make something a bit more of himself.

    Yeh Danie Keulder and Burger are the mainstays of the batting. Riaan Walters hit a beautiful 100 against the Zimbabweans, (but was dropped a lot admittedly and I'm still not convinced about him)..

    Not sure if Rudi van Vuuren is still around, but he and Burton van Rooi can bowl nicely, and they have quite a few decent all rounders (esp. Deon Kotze)
