Zimbabwe out for 35

I find it strange that this hasn't drawn a comment. We're going to play a
country that makes 35 in a home game against Sri Lanka, who rested three top
players?

Never mind the crap about a tour being cancelled only on grounds of
security, why not cancel it for being a joke? Surely the ICC can withdraw
Zimbabwe's accreditation as a Test nation.

They (the ICC) are showing what a bunch of useless intransient pricks they
are by doing nothing.

I think I read something that the a certain number of the other 10 test
playing countries had to vote them out. May have been 7 out of 10. Can't
recall though. Perhaps someone could confirm it.

Jason

ONCE.

SA lost to Holland. ONCE.

That said, whilst they won't be bowled out for 35 every time and
whilst some of them show signs of developing into reasonbable
cricketers, they're not going to give Australia any kind of a fright.

But to know if the tour is going to go ahead or not we'll have to ask
Dalmiya what he thinks. Dalmiya will say "I think XYZ" and the next
day the SMH will leak a confidential memo from the ECB criticising the
CA board for deciding that XYZ is the most appropriate course of
action.

Over here in New Zealand, we reckon 35 is a decent score. Respect!

That's true. Problem is, it might destroy some of them before they've
got going.

Australia if they take it seriously will win absurdly I would think.

Australia lost to Holland once in the 60's, I think.

Zimbabwe should stop playing cricket cause theres too much politics involved.
