    Grant Flower back in international cricket....

    ITSTL....

    I thought he was going back to Zimbabwe to be their batting coach, not to actually play international cricket....really big news for Zimbabwe.

    Good news. Still a very capable batsman, some impressive numbers in the County Championship this season.

    Why drop Taylor though?

    Indeed.

    I wonder if Anthony Ireland has any intentions of representing ZIM again. Good looking fast-bowler.

    Fair play to him. He's still a capable performer with the bat and he's super fit. I'm not authority on Zimbabwe, but imagine he's still close to the best available batsman they have.

    No Blignaut still. Is he injured or given it away once again?

    "as much a news event as an actual footballer, a worthy stop-start centre forward, but an all-time hyper-galactico when it comes to doing funny things with cars and hats, a player whose signing proves once again that the Premier League is still undoubtedly the best in the world when it comes to doing things with cars and hats."

    Last thing I heard was that he didn't sign a franchise contract and he was re-considering coming back.

    Didn't play in the Ireland series either, must be injured or something.

    Can only hope so. Would be 1 step forward with the inclusion of Flower, 2 steps back if Taylor and Price are missing through nothing else but injury.

    ZIM will benefit more by having Sean Ervine back. They have to stop the **** selections and play their best 11.

    Pick H Masakadsa, Taylor, S. Ervine, Taibu, G. Flower, Chigambura, Blignaut, Utseya, Price, Mpofu, Rainsford looks like their best XI.

    Ervine further down the order surely? Williams wouldn't be a bad option for opener either.

    Dion Ebrahim is still player/coach in Taranaki club cricket last I heard. He'd be a good addition to the side.

    Great to see a Flower back in Zimbabwe anyway.

    Anthony Ireland if he has interests in playing for ZIM again, would be in there as well.

    Would be very interested to know the reason why Taylor was dropped because of the latest bunch of Zimbabwean players I've seen play, hes easily been one of the most impressive. I'm sure having Flower back in the mix is going to help them in the short run but is it really a positive move with a look to the long term if he takes the spot of a younger batsman?

    I think it's a good move. Need to get them competitive first, then use the increased funding to work on the younger generation.

    Hamilton Masakadsa
    Sean Williams
    Brendan Taylor
    Grant Flower
    Chigambura
    Sean Ervine
    Tatenda Taibu
    Andy Blignaut
    Ray Price
    Anthony Ireland
    That Rainsford bloke

    Not too shabby. Would be a big plus if they managed to steal back de Grandhomme from us as well. 31 with the bat and 29 with the ball in FC cricket for Auckland.

    Getting their best players in other domestic competitions would really help them out imo.

    Ervine not 100% certain to come back last thing I heard. Ditto Blignaut and Ireland.
