    Ervine is in Ireland trying to qualify for them through family heritage. I think they passed on him anyway, but he doesn't have a Zimbabwean winter contract.

    Meth I think is still recovering from a knee injury he picked up in the Bangladesh series

    I have no idea why Williams isn't in the side, but he should be.


    Australia are 4/108 at the lunch break with Jarvis picking up 3 and Chigs picking up the other one. Zimbabwe would be happy with that result.

    Doolan the only real wicket they got tbh though, rest of the Aus batsmen are rubbish
    There are two colours in my head

    According to the below article, him and Utseya have been rested for the match which considering Zimbabwe's last international fixtures were two months ago against Bangladesh, it seems a strange move.

    As a Zimbabwean supporter you can use to bizarre selections and omissions from the side. Quite often they have nothing to do with form or cricket in general. Shingi Mazakadza is another who should be in the side over Chinouya and Maruma shouldn't be anywhere near the team

    Henriques and Maxwell spending lots of time in the crease is surely the result the selectors were after.............
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Can't believe this is Cummins first First Class game for 20 months.

    Cummins is obviously the most interesting thing out of this series.

    He's probably got one of the highest ceilings of any young quick in the world, there's not too many quicks I've seen like him at his age in the last 15 years with the lack of real quality quicks (Steyn aside). Has Donald/Ambrose tearaway type potential with his pace/bounce, and despite his injury, he only just turned 20 a month or so ago.

    Will be really interesting how he goes in this series and the start of the Australian summer, he's a real favourite of Cricket Australia, and I suggest with a bit of form and a decent run of fitness, will be straight into the Australian home Ashes squad.

    Australia bowled out for 226. Jarvis and Chigs the pick of the Zimbabwean bowlers. I have my doubts though that the batsmen will be able to back up the bowlers efforts. I can see the Australian bowlers going through the Zimbabwean batsmen like a hot knife through butter

    However most of them are very inexperienced.
