If they started playing Tests again, Rainsford would get picked. Comfortably the best seamer they have but has no-ball issues which can make him a bit of a liability in one day cricket; he also struggles to control the new white ball at times and given Zimbabwe generally only pick one specialist fast bowler it's not like he could bowl first or second change.

Shame to see Blignaut reduced to a medium paced trundler. Use to enjoy watching him bowl gun barrel straight 145kph half volleys.
Awesome though for Zim.
I watched the first ten over of India's innings.. put me to sleep.. they were playing test match lol.. i woke up tomarrow saw they lost the match..

What's the reaction been like in India? Lots of angry people? Anyone give a ****?

Zimbabwe are good side at home, it's just that nobody goes over there except Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.
Strong Batting + a good twin headed Spin attack of Price and Utseya.
I'd like to see Andy coach them after the Ashes or World Cup
Agreed. You can't use the word 'good' that lightly. Great is already overused.
If good is too, we're in trouble.
In other news, how good is Kohli? Love watching him bat.
Jesus brings life eternal
Just why is mendis still playing? Nobody seems to get out to him anymore....
And in the mean time Chandimal is having a party out there. 43(48) with one four and three huge sixes
