“Zimbabweans pride themselves on being hospitable. So even in this match, we keep throwing them a lifeline.”
Zimbabwean coach, Alan Butcher, throws up an innovative excuse for letting their opponents, Bangladesh, off the hook in the Test at Harare.
What he really meant:
“We do want the Bangladeshis returning for more. They’re the only team we can beat regularly.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“We take pride in losing matches at home.”
