    All Time Zimbabwe XI game

    Sorry for the thread spamming but I think we can get through a couple of the less experienced teams at the same time as a bigger country which lead us to Zim.

    Ive had a bit of a look and think we can get through 4 good to decent XIs.

    - Name the Zimbabwe XI 2 opening bowlers
    - Name Zims 2 opening batsman
    - Should Andy Flower play as a specialist batsman or wicket keeper?

    No. Just Test cricketers who played for Zim

    Pity. So many great cricketers miss out who played for SA, who played for some great Rhodesian teams in the Currie Cup or who left Rhodesia during their independence or just played ODIs for Zimbabwe.
    ie Ray Gripper, Robert Bentley, Tony Pithey, Colin Bland, Brian Davison, Andy Pycroft, Stuart Robertson, Kevin Curran, Peter Swart, Paddy Clift, Duncan Fletcher, Howard Gardiner, John Partridge, Godfrey Lawrence, Peter Rawson, Vince Hogg, Jackie Du Preez, Richard Kaschula, Denis Tomlinson, David Pithey

    Other wise :

    Streak & Brandes (tough one with Jarvis)

    G.Flower & Masakadza

    A.Flower not to keep.

    My answers would have been different including the last one if we could go back.

    After we name the best Zim XI I would be interested in seeing your best ever XI including the Rhodesian guys. I dont know a large number of the cricketers you mentioned.

    Should be no restrictions IMO. If the voters decide they count, they should count.

    I realise NUFAN has already said otherwise but I suspect the number of people voting for non-Test players would be really small anyway. Too late now I guess.

    True. I suppose it wouldn't make a difference like you say. But probably unknown to most they have had some awesome cricketers worth reading up on and even players as we know who jumped ship. They obviously had some help from players like Mike Procter, Robin Jackman, Peter Carlstein as non-Rhodesians but they competed strongly in the Currie Cup in some spells.

    It's amazing when you look at their cricket how it stayed in the farming family names but so many moved to England, SA , Australia, New Zealand that the family lines just stopped.

    Goofy Lawrence and Joe Partridge were one hell of a opening bowling bowling partnership for Rhodesia and both did relatively well for SA. I read Lawrence moved Oz and the son or grandson was a decent Aussie Rules player.

    Yeah I think it would've been interesting to see you vote for a stack of Rhodesian domestic players, especially as I don't think it'd end up biasing the actual results. It'd create discussion and give them some well-deserved credit in the full listing of voted for players, and probably not affect the overall result.

    I agree that it should only really be test careers. Otherwise Clarrie Grimmett will make the NZ first team...

    An xi from the decade or so of "international" matches prior to being granted test status would include Arnott, Pycroft, HIck, Fletcher, Curran, Rawson and Traicos.

    Anyway... Flower G and Masakadza
    Streak and Mbangwe

    Flower as keeper. I think he did better when he kept.
