    Prosper Utesya has played 11 1st class games for Mashonaland A. He has a batting average of 13 and a bowling average of 44. If he's getting figures like that in the Logan Cup then he wouldn't even be playing Minor Counties. He bowls offbreaks

    Tawanda Mpariwa has played 6 1st class games. His batting average is 15, his bowling average 28 with 14 wickets, he's an RFM

    Edward Rainsford has played 10 matches. His batting average is 10, his bowling average is 25 . He bowls RFMs

    Brendon Taylor is a batsman. His batting average in first-class is 27. He keeps wicket and I think he got a big hundred at the u19 World Cup.

    Elton Chigumbura is a batsman with an average of 25.

    Those are the players I think most people, including myself, have never heard of. I used to be a Zimbabwe fan but I'm through with them now. It's gone past the stage where you can really support them as underdogs anymore. I reckon the sacked players should set up a "Real Zimababwe" XI and play tests in Sharjah, if only that were possible.

    Perhaps this might help some of the Aussie players with their presumptions that the Zimbabwe public are just begging for them to come and play, rather than boycott the tour.

    Our joking doesn't involve putting him down (apart from Clarke that is)

    err, righto then.

    But I find it strange that I make a couple of comments about Sibanda within a week & you label it an obsession. While of course, you went on for months about Agarkar (and still do)..regardless of whether you were putting him down or not.

    Because the Sibanda is not humour, you made an allegation about him and then had a go at him again.

    With comments like the AAAS, there is absolutely no malice involved.

    The comment about him being related to someone in the ZCU was ill-sighted & I owe an apology..but as far as im concerned, my comments about his ability have been in the same joking fashion as you have done before with several players on this forum.

    Why you accuse me of obsession with it after only a week or so is beyond me. Im prepared to let it go, I hope you are too.

    Is this a one-team series? Looks like everyone's forgotten about the other team playing!

    Issues, Arjun. Issues.
    The fact that Sri Lanka are there is by and large irrelevant.

    Agreed, but this is a cricket tournament.

    The Lankans are fielding a young team and I would like to see them improve and make the most of a really good chance to announce themselves. They did play rather good cricket, even against a club side. They too need some support.

    Anyway, this is a Sri Lanka in Zimbabwe thread, not one on a Zimbabwe Second String XI.

    But it was inevitably going to happen because of the nature of the Zimbabwean side.

    No doubts from me that what Sri Lanka have done is very good but that is what they were expected to do unfortunately whereas why it happened is much more newsworthy in my book.

    Though I did congratulate Vaas on his 300 wickets.
