    The thing about Vusi is that, although his stats are dreadful (although they are improving at the moment), he always looks good when he is batting. His big problem is concentration, which is something playing Grade in Aus can help him with, and he evidnetly knows that because he says it will "help him grow mentally". He's a talented player and he just might be a success, certainly heading in the right direction.

    I remember the first ball he faced in Test cricket (I think it was the first one) and he played a gorgeous cover drive for four. He only made 18 or so though.

    He looked a lot better when he toured the West Indies this year than he did back then. He certainly is an improved cricketer. He's one of those talented cricketers who really never had the coaching to maximize upon that talent. I'm glad that he may now get the opportunity.
    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."

    SIbanda is a lot better than people give him credit for. Especially of late.

    Interesting move. Wonder which club in which state he'll be playing for.

On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Great move IMO. Moving to play cricket in Australia can only benefit Sibanda, and the Zimbawian team.

    I saw his first ball as well Camps, and it was indeed a glorious cover drive for 4. Hopefully he can make full use of the wider range of coaching facilities, and experience here in Australia.
