    Would you tour Zimbabwe?

    Ignoring whether the ICC will decide, or not decide, to remove the requirement for teams to tour Zimbabwe, would you personally go? If not, would it be for security reasons, moral reasons, or both?

    Personally, I think I'd follow MacGill's example last time Australia were to tour and declare myself unavailable on moral grounds. If I did so, I'd be disappointed if it was held against me later, but prepared to wear it if that's what happened.

    Funnily enough I went to Zimbabwe for a weekend break last weekend.

    Very enjoyable it was too.

    No -on both grounds plus the fact that the team is crap anyway. PS -I'm prettuy certain Flintoff and Harmison didn't go on our last trip there for moral reasons although it was said at the time they were "resting"
    Ian Botham, Freddie Flintoff, Kevin Pietersen, Brian Laudrup, Gazza and Daniela Hantuchova....a fan of you all FOREVER!!!
    Can't wait to see Australia field a crap leg-spinner like Hollland or Hohns again.....
    Congratulations to Daniela Hantuchova on her 3rd career title....

    M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10

    No, because I'm not actually allowed in the country. What option do I vote for?

    Not completely dis-similar actually. I have a press-related ban, despite never writing anything about the Zimbabwean team aside from on a couple of forums. Mugabe reads cricketweb evidently..

    Somehow I have doubts over whether it really is a press-related though - my connection with Zimbabwe is quite strange. There's some evidence to suggest I may have been born there, despite my parents' insistance that they've never been there.

    Wtf? How on earth did you get a press-related ban?

    Edit. Actually if you're uncomfortable talking about it, don't worry.

    I wouldn't have a clue. I don't even have a passport to my knowledge. I'd be interested to see if Chubb for example would allowed into the country.

    Not only do I have a press-related ban though - but they made a special effort to let me know that I'd been given one, despite not making any indication to suggest I planned on going there. I probably shouldn't discuss it here though ITBT.

    They may regret the decision though because I'm quite convinced that I'm a better bowler than this guy!
