    Mupariwa takes 5/46; surprised he wasn't used more yesterday after taking those two new ball wickets.

    89 for Panyangara batting eight in the same game, heh. Can definitely see every ZC centrally contracted player becoming an allrounder this season.

    Seems crazy that the gulf in quality has opened up so quickly. I mean, sure, bowlers work on their batting a lot more then in previous years, but former bunnies shouldn't become all-rounders that quickly.

    Sounds like the sides are 5-man teams, with the rest solely making up the numbers. Not good signs at all.

    Very few players are actually debuting this round, so I'm probably exaggerating things slightly, and Panyangara was someone identified with batting (or at least, slogging) talent as a kid before it kind of fell away, so it's not that surprising that he scored some runs at #8 I suppose.

    I think what I'm saying is typified a bit by the fact that Tawanda Mupariwa is batting five this round, though. I mean, really? He batted six in the one dayer a few days ago too but I held out hope of it being some sort of pinch hitting role. Doesn't look to be case.
    He's not even a centrally contracted player; must've been really seeing them well in the nets to get that sort of random promotion...

    I should mention, to add irony to what was basically "become an allrounder week", Zimbabwe's actual Test allrounder Elton Chigumbura decided he cbf bowling.

    Mupariwa batted five, Panyangara hit 89, Raza Butt bowled plenty, Williams bowled plenty, Chibhabha bowled, Waller bowled, but Elton cbf.

    Apparently the Eagles strongly considered debuting a 15 year old in this week's game. I'd be surprised if he didn't feature at some point this season. His name is Nick Welch; he's a batsman.

    Finished the 5th leading run scorer at the CSA u17 cricket week that finished yesterday. Would think he will play for Zim u19s next year.

    Rain kills off most of Day 4 in both games then; two draws.

    Would hosting an India A / development team ( including players like Sehwag, Ghambir etc) be profitable. Surely some Indian networks would pay to televise, obviously not as much as if playing against the National team but something is better than nothing. I would guess the games would be fairly competitive.

    Yeah it's possible. He does go through periods where he just completely loses his bowling though.
