    Know Querl has done well in Devon but it is pretty annoying, although understanable, he won't play for Zim. Total geek question but does anyone else think of Consider Phlebas by Iain M. Banks when they see that name? (Querl = Idiran rank)

    It says so much, though, about Zimbabwe's sports culture that they still churn out good cricketers who can have pro careers. And still they have an exile XI that could compete with Bangladesh.

    Looks like a great knock from Ham.

    I think this needs a cute couple name. Torn over whether to call it Queth or Merl. Thoughts?

    I don't think I'll be able to get used to this Rocks winning malarkey either.

    Looks a good knock from Tinotenda Mutumbodzi - 100 off 123 balls from number 8 - to set up a challenging chase for the Mountaineers. Mashonaland will be encouraged they got Masakadza and Hodgson early, though Pettini is still there.

    Only one wicket so far for Keeglen in the latest round of matches, but 6-21 from Mpofu. Also a duck for Mickleburgh.

    That's ridiculous. Utterly ridiculous.

    Kyle Jarvis still taking poles for fun too, by the looks of things.

    @Cribb, Chubb and the guys who know more about Zimbabwean cricket than I do - if everyone was available, what would be your Zimbabwe Test XI?

    You're probably going to have to define "everyone" first. Does Querl count? What about Ballance? Compton? Paul Harris? Where do you draw the line exactly?

    I don't know as much as I used to. More of a benign interest in the team and provincial stuff than the screaming passion (and anger) I did have.

    I find it hard to select a batting lineup because I'd have most of the ones who were in the NZ test.... and we know what happened there. But I'd want Williams not Chakabva and he's the only one who scored runs in that game. So what do you do?

    Take this as a stab, though as PEWS said, how do you define it?

    Mawoyo
    Sibanda
    Masakadza
    Taylor
    Williams
    Waller
    Taibu
    Querl
    Meth
    Jarvis
    Cremer

    My natural defensive preferences here - Waller potentially better as pure batsman than Chiggers IMO. Also interesting, perhaps, there are 4 black batsmen and no black bowlers, which is unusual for Zimbabwe.

    Extremely harsh to bat Cremer below Jarvis.

    Good to see you've restored the Zimbabwean tradition of having bowling allrounders down to 10 though (well, eleven if you maintain your batting order). Ray Price at 8 with Jarvis at 9 was enough to make a man cry at 6 down.

    I think you'd be stupid not to have a strong tail if you're a Zimbabwe selector. Fact is there aren't any specialist bowlers who are worth their place above the "allrounders". Half the batsmen can bowl the odd over to fill in anyway... and then they go and play Mutizwa, S Masakadza and Chakabva.... but then perhaps they are trying to play to win. It just seems to me they'd do better to have a more conservative lineup.
