Random Cricket Thread (International Cricket)

Postby braveneutral » Tue Nov 25, 2008 1:02 am

Hey guys... this is a little thread to let us post stories that may not have a huge interest, but that we have found amusing or interesting and will allow us to bring stories from all walks of cricketing life into it. From IPL to ICL, Stanford Series to Sharjah Trophies (not too many of them anymore :()...

Well, Andy Moles, formerly of Kenya and Scotland amongst others has been appointed NZ coach in an interesting (but cheap?!) move...

Another interesting move is the call up of Lonwabo Tsotsobe (I copied and pasted, no hope at all of typing it...) has been called up for the Test Series against Australia by SA... I am sure we will be hearing about him soon...

I knew of him at Kenya and Scotland, he left Kenya infamously (walking out to Scotland - due to admin problems of course!). According to BBC he has coached England U-19s, SA's Free State and NZ's Northen Knights... it seems that he has been around the block a bit... oh Hong Kong too!

I think Makhaya Ntini is Xhosa, isn't he?

Apparently a long term ankle problem which is a bit disappointing for a cricketer having to end his career in such a way.
