Zimbabwe, light at the end of the tunnel?

Could be a bit of light at the end of the tunnel for Zimbabwe's cricketers.

They are apparently thinking of entering an A team in the 4 day game with the Associates.

The way I see it is a good thing for the Associates because they will get to test their ability va recent test nation and a good thing for Zimbabwe because they will get a longer form of the game.

Only problem is the regime though.

It's not exactly a groundbreaking observation it has to be said. And with the link dead, in actuality probably never alive, I can't comment on the article either. 2/10; must try harder...

The reason they're fielding the A team is that everybody would call for them to be stripped of their full member status if they lost some matches. A previous article even openly mentioned that.

It is a good thing though. If they are here to stay, then they should be playing first-class cricket as well.

They need to improve their bowling. Their batting is adequate, though the placid pitches they're preparing is probably masking potential problems in this area.

Watched a fair bit of the last two games while here in SA. There are some promising players for Zimbabwe. Hamilton Masakadza was pretty impressive I thought.

The light at the end of the tunnel is Mark Vermulen with a flamethrower?

Heath Streak, the former Zimbabwean bowler is set to be named as the new Head Coach of Zimbabwe!

This is surely good news for the cricket there right?

I think it could be good news as it stands too. The fact that a player that, not long ago, quit due to management has decided to return could be a sign that things have changed at the top. It's not the complete change we'd all like to see but it's a start.

Zimbabwe cricket is returning albeit slowly to some normality. Grant Flower is coming back to play and coach in Zimabwe. Streak is back and apparently Blignaught too .

Judging by today's ODI v Bangladesh I guess they still have some way to go. The 5th lowest ODI total.

In addition, Ray Price, Greg Lamb, Rickey Wessels, Graeme Cremer, Gavin Ewing, Elton Chigumbura, present captain Prosper Utseya and Charles Coventry form the basis of a national squad.

What's Wessels doing there?

That's Riki Wessel not the same as the this guy called up by Zimbabwe.

Anyway Zimbabwean cricket has returned to more or less its full strength now. Blignaught, Williams are back in the frame, Streak is back as coach, Campbell is a selector and there's rumours that Murrary Goodwin is about to return.
