If only they had the support and sporting infrastructure like Australia enjoys with things like full time cricket coaches and academies, they could actually realise their full potential. And then of course like you said their is an added problem with respect to the political instability over there.
yeah, it's always good to hear people who've had actual experiences of Africa speak of how much potential and good stuff there is going on there. Rather than those who just accept the newspaper/TV version which are only interested in accentuating the negatives.
Anyway, back to the cricket....
