Don't start us Zimbabwe Cricket!!

The game of Cricket matters the most in Zimbabwe, infact Zimbabwe matters most to the game of Cricket, because Zimbabweans just uniquely love cricket.

We love cricket that it exists in the figment of our imagination and matters to us that it covers the better half of our water-logged brains.It matters more than work, look how employment issues are compromised whenever Zimbabwe Chevrons play host to any visiting cricketing country.  
It is a symbol of Unity in Zimbabwe, the only sport that knows no cultural, Tribal or racial boundary.

Imagine; while other countries are rallying their teams in England, ZC gulliable board decides to affirm their managerial positions without the blessings of the big brother SRC. One would wonder whether SRC is acting contrary to the requirements of the world Cricket mother body (ICC) by suspending the whole board or ZC board is just too obedient and can not act wayward to the precepts of the ICC. Well, cricket always answer itself in the field of play.

Amidst all the tagging and all the hibbie-gibbering in ZC, the Chevrons are tasked to tour Europe. Our dejected boys tour Netherlands and Ireland, few Kilometers shy from England where the whole cricketing world is locked at. As if to draw them closer to their heart break, the Chevrons quickly answers back to the ZC-SRC-ICC conflict by getting a hummering from the Dutch.

With that much of value we treasure the gentlemen's game in this third world country, i belive we deserve happiness and joy as reward  to our ever bubbling and relentless passion of the game. Yes, the game of cricket should be a solace snd refuge to the poor souls of Zimbabweans

Honestly, ZC dont start us! We cannot afford to play victim again to the Zimbabwe Cricket management kids play squabbles. We havent even healed a bit from that crushing humiliating  defeat  from UAE that took with it a place for the ongoing World Cup in England. Look how we now desperatly cling on Proteas and Windies flags just to fit-in in the ICC "elite".

We dont deserve to endure this mental torture caused  by incessant maladministration and irrisponsive management by ZC. We really cannot afford to live with such abuse and fallacy from ZC. We need peace for crying out loud. We need to enjoy cricket in this land. Or else......
