    Zimbabwe - are they on their way back up?

    I know this sounds kinda dumb, but Zimbabwe look to be on the improve. Vermulen and Coventry have returned, their performances are better, the country looks to be in better political state, Peter Chingoka may go as ZCU President, Barney Rogers, Trevor Gripper, Douglas Mariller, Campbell MacMillan, Dion Ebrahim, Terry Duffin, Andy Blignaut and Gavin Ewing may go back to the fold (and there's probably more).

    So, should they get their test status back?

    Not yet, because a lot of this stuff is rumour. If some of those blokes come back, then they should. I'm biased of course, but they'd compete with the recent Windies team, and give the Bangladeshis a run. Things are certainly better in the administration now, but results will have to come.

    Given they just got thumped 4-1 at home by Bangladesh in ODIs and thier Second XI is losing to Afghanistan, I reckon I'll go with no on this one.

    There are more positive signs of late but there are just as many negative ones. For a change, the positive ones seem to the off the field and the negatives ones on it.

    Lots of talent in the team but it seems to be going to waste.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Good point. I still think, however, that the performances will come. Work's been done off the field, with many ex-players coming back, but they still need to perform. Zimbabwe need a couple of good seamers to compete, IMO.
