Easy runs and wickets ahead. Though I suppose conditions wise can’t be much different from home

ICC wants that way.Future test matches will be more and more either 4 day test Involving Minor nation and Also more Two tests series unless Ashes.

Southafrica,Srilanka and India protest Against ICC of 4 day tests.

30/4 makes it look better.
Law 31.6 - benefit of the doubt for an dismissal appeal goes to the batsman
A third umpire call for a run out or stumping is a referral, not a review.

Hehe great yorker by Rabada, that Zimbabwean tail-ended had to untangle the ball from his own shoelaces.

Good question.

Two divisions needed. Let Zimbabwe and Afghanistan play each other, more even and more to learn/improve from for both.

What are Zimbabwe learning being bowled out for 68?

Uhmm with superstars Khan, Nabi and Shezhad - Zimbos are beneath Afghanistan. Srsly.

Afghanistan will, if smart, like BCCI smart, serve day 1 turners aka budsen burners.

To help fill Safricas yearly quota so Faf and C Morris (or W Parnell or another bat) fill in for Bavuma and Phelukwayo respectively in the tests vs Aus in March. A few more tests vs India should get close to fulfil the rquirements for the A Team to play Aus in at least 1 test.

If you think Bavuma or Phelukwayo deserve their spots - 'u mad bro'. Hopefully for Safrican cricket fans, they lift to deserving their spots.

We can read the scorecard.

That’s a humiliating wipe out.
