Assuming there will be some NAT team selection, does Zondo look good with 44 bowl?

Worth a look in?

A lot of things going against him here, exp, trait combinations, skillset, lack of fielding and batting for a type of bowler we have in abundance. I could keep going. So I'm afraid he probably won't be in any plans in the near future.

43 high fm bowl though his movement is 18, 30 bat, 11 fielding.

Though this bloke is most certainly in the frame. Nice pace, good exp, can bat and can field. Also not entirely a one trick pony seeing as he has ok variation. Not a fan of dry hands, but close catcher is a nice addition.

Ah yes, Zondo. Always a...interesting talking point at selection. Skill says he'll certainly at least be shortlisted, though his nat record might go against him as a first choice spinner. We'll take stock of our reasonably strong spin stocks and see where he falls, but at worst he'll be a backup bowler.

Ah yes, the 50 pot player we had shortlisted which I had been trying to remember for the life of me who he was lol. Looking nice, though my only complaint is that he isn't more death bowling situated (we seem to have a lot of opening bowler type seamers....).
As for the other, he does indeed, unfortunately. A bit more skill as a death over specialist might get him a gig as seamer wise we're very short on that. 40ish skill would making him seriously tempting, even more so if he had pace (as well as exp, but a bit of a given). Although not sure what to make of his...interesting batting trait combo's with handy batting :lol:

Nice player, probably won’t play this season but given another season to develop should have him in the mix (more on the exp front, his skill is nearly there). Handy little part timer too which gives me fond memories.

My latest recruit Mbatha should be one for the future.

Absolutely he looks good hope he gains those skills quickly to be part of the squad for more games.

Also if he is trained in WK it can help the squad better too either as first or supporting WK when the first one needs rest.

With the forced exclusions of a few players and moving on from a couple more, there's still a couple of spots in the squad up for grabs. Mostly looking for bowlers at this point, preferably seam bowling all-rounders but quality seam bowlers will still do the trick. Or even a spinner.


I pulled this opener today (yep, I’ve somehow fluked the youth academy pull lottery to get another batsman :lol:)
https://www.stumpedgame.com/player.php?Player=221152

Only 43 pot batting and his fielding is mediocre, so he may not make it to the squad. However, he has the opener trait, with high
SS, good defence and excellent stamina perfectly synchronising with it to make him a much better player than his potentials make him out to be. If I train him well he should get to 40 skill in his prime.

Personally I’m pulling Zimbabwe from now on, ever since I pulled Wright I felt that it was my calling in this game to serve one of the smaller national teams. :)
