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."

    I may as well be the first one to express my disgust.
    Or something.

    Good stuff.

    So all Dev League players should state in here whether or not they will be available for selection to play this series. The CWBCC has been mandated by the ICC to carry out the series, and will be issued a severe fine should we not do so.

    That said, it's fascinating that there wasn't much complaint for this.

    The difference between a multi-national tournament and a two country series has been pointed out numerous times previously.

    Difference being....?

    If there's an issue with playing against Zimbabwe in CWLand, why would it matter if it was a one-off or a 5-game series? Aren't morals morals? There was every opportunity to forfeit the game against Zimbabwe in the World Cup. That way said morals wouldn't have been compromised.

    Why do you keep inviting Zimbabwe rather than the other minnow nations? Is it just a love of stirring?

    Bangladesh have never visited CWLand, and Holland are the only associate to have done.

    I'm available for selection if needed. I'd be hesitant to tour Zimbabwe to be honest, but I have no real qualms with playing against them over here.

    We've only ever played one series (outside of multi-nation series) against Zimbabwe, and that was four seasons ago. And we've also played one series against Bangladesh and one against Holland. I don't see where the discrepancy is. We've also never played a Test against Zimbabwe.

    We've played each once and now we're playing one of them a second time. It's a cycle. It's how things work. Are you available for the series then?

    It's a funny looking cycle if it excludes Canada, Kenya, Bermuda, Scotland and Ireland and doesn't work on a Home/Away basis.

    How many Test nations have played Canada, Bermuda, Scotland and Ireland outside of the World Cup or Champions Trophy? Kenya, perhaps, but when was the last time they played a series against England or New Zealand?

    How is it uncommon that a Test nation would host Zimbabwe rather than Canada?

    Two wrongs making a right, are they? Under the ICC initiative for ODI status post the Trophy, Test/ODI status ought not be as relevant.

    The WI are hosting Canada and Bermuda in 18 months time - at the same time that Kenya and Scotland hit SA. If the incompetent WICB can get it, can't we?

    And why are we to host Canada, Bermuda, Kenya and Scotland right away? I really don't see the sense of your reasoning. Are you saying that it's unrealistic that we would host Zimbabwe for the first time in four years before we host another minnow nation? Do tell. I'm intrigued.

    Considering that the ICC only opened up the playing field for other minnow nations very recently, it's not as though that factors into any sequence to date. I still fail to see your argument, other than you simply don't want to play Zimbabwe. And therefore I gather that you'd be arguing against playing Zimbabwe regardless of how many times we'd played Bangladesh in between.

    We played Zimbabwe once. We played Bangladesh once. We played Holland once. We've toured Bangladesh. We've never toured Zimbabwe. We're not about to start touring Zimbabwe now.

    We're going to play Zimbabwe a second time. We will then play Bangladesh a second time. Maybe then we shall host Canada.
