I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    The notion of having Zimbabwe on tour here disgusts me. This tour implies support of the Mugabe government, his minions in the ZCU, the black racism, the torture and the general mismanagement of Zimbabwe.

    Stop the tour! Ban the ZCU!

    Could not agree more.

    I'm also appalled at the board's action in "resting" me before I had the chance to decry the involvement of the Mugabe XI in this country's cricketing scene. I will not have any part in this tour and I call on every other CW player equipped with a functioning conscience to join in our stand.

    A point already suggested, but rejected I'm afraid.
    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?

    For goodness sakes, its a sim, can't we have a series where no political themes overshadow the cricket?

    If this were real life, I'd see a point to it, but having Zimbabwe tour CWLand on the basis of a 'sim' doesn't effect Robert Mugabe or the International Community in anyway.

    Some people on here just have a habit of getting too political.

    A lot of you may disagree with me, but I prefer harmony and some top quality cricket on this board, rather then every single thread on this board being turned into a politically volatile one.

    Sorry folks, but thats just me.

    I merely responded to the shameful invitation of the Mugabwe team to these shores.

    Could this be AMZ's international debut? I think it is highly likely now Neil has been rested.
    eep.
