I hope Kenya give them a 5-0 beating so everyone can have it confirmed what a joke Zimbabwe Cricket has become. I have no tolerance for this situation.
We will NEVER forgive "Umpire" Ian Robinson
And it will show that Kenya is actually a decent international side who deserve to play far more ODIs than they have been playing in recent times.Originally Posted by sirjeremy11
Can someone please explain to me why this happened.
I mean, surely the point of match-fixing is to lose a match that your team is favoured to win. Being Kenya, who on Earth would put money on them to win?
Q: What's your favourite animal?
Steve Waugh: Merv Hughes.
That was a tremendous six, the ball was still in the air as it went over the boundary.
That's what cricket is all about. Two batsmen pitting their wits against one another.
Anyone foolish enough to predict the outcome of this match is a fool.
Unless something happens that we can't predict, I don't think a lot will happen.
Ian Blackwell: It's just understanding foods and what to eat at certain times.
Zimbabwe should be boycotted.

OD: -62---56----15-----1342----32.73-----10------0-------99 (seriously)

Ah. The series I've been waiting for. It's all the boys have been able to talk about down at the pub.
This is the most meaningful series I've seen Zimbabwe play (with the exception of Bangladesh) in a long time. IMO this series will be good for both teams, especially Kenya, whose international career actually has a hope. There should be more series like this, but involving teams like Kenya, Bangladesh, USA and Nepal and not Zimbabwe.Originally Posted by BlackCap_Fan

Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
I think Zimbabwe will win, but it will be close and Tikolo will score a lot of runs. It will be interesting to see what squad Zimbabwe will select- will Greg Strydom finally get his chance? Is it time for de Grandhomme? Will Vusi and Waddy, the two worst players in international cricket, cling on?
This is the fifteen-man squad I would pick, taking into account the contracts offered.
Charles Coventry +
Colin de Grandhomme
Keegan Meth (He had a good world cup, although he isn't really ready yet)
Justice Chibhabha (or whatever he is calling himself at the moment)
I did not consider Panyangara, Ewing or Hondo because they are supposed to be injured at the moment. If they are fit, they have to be in the starting linups. Keegan Meth's performances in the U19 WC make him look like a promising allrounder, and with Blignaut gone and the relatively poor strength of the opposition it might be a good idea to blood him in the same role. Hamilton may not be available because of his degree, and I can't see another captain in that side with the requisite experience so that will be a problem if he can't play.
Of course, ZC are not exactly known for rational selection decisions, so doubtless we'll see the genius of Vusi Sibanda "grace" the international stage once more, and the hapless Waddy will be tonked all over the place again.
Somebody has to...
Kenya in Zimbabwe - Series Preview
"Politics, coaching changes, and intercontinental rivalry. A clash of the minnows indeed, but the upcoming series between Zimbabwe and Kenya has proven already to be action-packed, and a ball has not yet been bowled."
Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? 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."

OT but Chubb is that Heath Streak in your avatar?
Should be an "interesting" series...Definitely more interesting than one between Aus and Zimbabwe would be...

Ed Rainsford, hence the sig. I've been trying to get as many Zimboks in it as possible. Had Taibu, Vusi, Stuart Carlisle, Ray Price, Blessing Mahwire and Ed so far.Originally Posted by Craig
