Tatenda Taibu: What he said, really meant and definitely did not
What he said:
“Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) has just painted a house that’s about to fall.”
Zimbabwean cricketer, Tatenda Taibu, slammed the country’s cricket administration claiming that the return to Test cricket is mere eyewash and that the very edifice is crumbling. “”When you walk around and you see a house that’s painted well, you will think that house is really standing strong but if does not have a strong foundation, it will fall down one day or another.” said the wicketkeeper batsman. Zimbabwe take on Bangladesh at Harare on the 4th of August, 2011 followed by four ODIs.
What he really meant:
“Painting a creaky building just makes it a prettier ruin. It’s merely papering over the cracks—to use a better metaphor.”
What he definitely didn’t:
