    63* off 222 balls today for young opening batsman Brian Chari. Jesus. Hope he can make it through to stumps; can't remember the last time I saw a batsman literally bat out the entire day with no loss of play and not ton up.

    He got out two balls later. My jinxing is obviously more threatening than the Rocks bowling.

    Seems the international Zimbabwe batsmen doing a lot of bowling,Taylor tons up,there must be something in it for the bowlers in both matches.

    The structures in place at the moment are going to really create a gulf between the centrally contracted players and everyone else, especially if they remain as they are for a few years. We're probably going to start seeing more of bowlers batting in the top six and batsmen bowling a lot of overs unless things start improving, and it'll become seriously important to fast-track genuine young talent into the centrally contracted players group to avoid players giving up the game or having their talented squandered by a lack of available infrastructure.

    Ideally the financial situation of domestic cricket would improve so none of that became a bigger issue than it already is, but if this goes on longer than just this season then there will be disastrous consequences. Ireland and Afghanistan are coming to get them.

    50 up for Vermeulen on his return to Mashonaland.

    I wonder if he still holds out any hope for a Test recall. I still straight up think he should be in the T20I side.

    Are there literally no sponsors? Don't the state sides at least have their own minor sponsors? No player wages? Crazy.

    There are literally no sponsors for the tournament. The franchises do have their own minor sponsors I believe which is where the very limited players contracts are coming from, but for pretty much all the players not on ZC contracts, it's probably not going to be a full-time job this season.

    Man that's so ****.

    Good on the BCCI for touring and helping them generate sufficient revenue to carry on with this season.

    I know you're taking the piss, but AWTA. Playing India at home is literally the only profitable cricket Zimbabwe play; everything else actually runs at a loss. So vital for them.

    Rainsford 13-8-11-1

    From an outswing bowler capable of bowling mid 130s ftr, so it's unlikely he's just putting it there.

    I really do wonder who exactly he pissed off sometimes.

    I think his history of being somewhat crazy wouldn't endear him to selectors taking him on an overseas tour, nor would benefit dressing room harmony (insofar as that exists in Zimbabwean cricket) all that much. Hard to see him coming back.

    This tournament sounds like such a mess though. Shame, because Zimbabwean cricket had such potential.

    He's actually already had one comeback post-craziness though. Didn't bother them then, and I don't think anyone would say he's gotten any worse since then as such.
