    Just as well too. Should easily be able to find a decent 8 amongst that lot.

    Selectors should be begging Rob Quiney to make a comeback.

    Zimbabwe have cancelled the test series against us, and one against Pakistan, and replaced it with a T20I tri-series. Hip hip hoo f**king ray.

    Looks like the Bangladesh series has been quietly shelved as well.

    So, instead of a few nothing series so the new team can knit together, the Paine era will truly begin on horizontal turners in Dubai followed by an inbound tour against an Indian side that have found a few decent quick bowlers.

    This is just great stuff all round.

    Zimbabwe were always going to cancel their tests, they have zero money and lose money when they host tests.

    Should be a good series in Pakistan they are about our level atm

    Plus they've just sacked half the side and the coaching staff

    It's been said for a few years now, but honestly what's the point of Zimbabwe as an ICC member anymore?

    Hopelessly corrupt, would struggle to compete in the FC system of most of the other countries, no sign of improvement - going backwards if anything - and can't even really afford to play the game.

    They've been on a downhill slide since about 1999. Just turn off the life support already.
