Leaving aside that Murray Goodwin is never going to come back anyway, I wouldn't pick him at this age, however good he is compared to the rest.
Somebody has to...
Yeah, is 39-year-old Goodwin still a better bat than Waller, for instance?

Eight in an innings for Ed Rainsford; I'm loving it. One of the players I found myself disagreeing with Chubb on the most back in the day I believe; I guess he won out with Rainsford way down the pecking order now, but I still hold out hope.
I can't believe he's already 27; seems like such a waste.
Jeez I can't remember bagging Rainsford? I do remember calling for him to be in the side a couple of times. And I used to have him as my avatar too.
Fair enough. Perhaps he will be selected now.
Did what he could with the cattle he had to work with. I'm hearing Streak or Grant Flower will take over.
Meth and Querl have torn another batting side apart getting figures of 4/24 for Meth and 5/24 for Querl as the Rhinos were bowled out for 65. A side that contains Taylor, Waller, Sibanda and Vermulen.
Word going around in Zim cricket circles is that Querl is a bit of a chucker. I haven't seen a lot of him, but in the domestic games that were televised last year, his action looked a bit dodgy.
I hope I'm wrong because he looks like he could be a gun.
What's the story with Crystal? Doesn't seem to have had a fair go internationally, is he too slow? Can't see why he couldn't get a go ahead of Mpofu or Ncube in the test side, especially since he can bat too.
