    Zimbabwean rebels to tour England?

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I, for one, will pay to go see a match involving these guys on a tour.

    Would be a classic against Lashings, but doesn't Olonga play for Lashings at the moment?

    I can't see it happening - shades of the Packer circus................

    the ICC won't sanction the games as they would be seen as having double standards re the ZIM situation, and they will put the word out that any board entertaining the idea of hosting such a tour / match would be viewed with some disfavour etc etc etc ..................

    Playing against village sides and doing testimonials etc etc wouldn't be under ECB jurisdiction so the ICC can bog off on that front.

    than letting both the parties drift away further.

    In all honesty, would you rather live in England if your a Zimbabwe rebel or live in Zimbabwe?

    You'll probably find that's not that straightforward a poser to answer as you think.
