For Zimbabwe Andy Flower and Heath Streak are auto picks. Could argue Taylor, Masakadza, Olongo and Flower Jnr are autopicks as well. Price and Strang competing for the spinner's slot.

Murray Goodwin and Brendan Taylor too, surely?
Yea I mentioned Taylor. Goodwin a good shout. Didn't play as many Tests for Zim as he should have but defo a quality player.

Graeme Cremer would be a decent shout for that spinner's role as well. IMO he was one of Zim's best captains post-2005.
Yea. 3 spinners in competition for that spot for Zim, so no real auto pick for that role tbf. Not sure who I'd pick of the 3 really - I personally rate Ray Price, and never saw enough of Strang or Cremer bowling in long format cricket to tell who the better legspinner was.

Same here, from the little I saw of Price he impressed me greatly. Would love to have seen a bit more of Strang, I know that he was very highly regarded when he was active. Was considered to be Zimbabwe's #1 threat with the ball behind Heath Streak.

Olonga wasn't that great, and the whole point of auto picks is that "could argue" doesn't come into it. If you're an auto pick then there's is no argument. At this point you're just discussing your opinion of what an ATG side should look like.
