What Has Happened To The Zimbabwe Cricket Team?

by Anura Guruge


Up until the World 2016 Twenty20 earlier this year I had been REALLY enjoying watching the Zimbabweans — especially their batsman. They played with a gusto and passion which reminded me of my West Indies of the 1970s and 1980s. In the World Cup 20/20 they looked fragile. And now in the three match ODI series against India at home. Gee. They appeared clueless. On that form I would have to say Afghanistan should be given Test credentials in place of them. It is disturbing and bad. I hope this sorry situation is being looked into ‘at home’.
