Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

there are only 2 scenarios that will probably occur here. a Zim win or a draw. i think Zim wins if we get a full days play, just need to be disciplined, aggressive and creative.

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

I think umpires honestly want us to lose. It’s like they need to maintain order and not upset the cart. Back to strategy. We need to go for the win, otherwise why play the game? I know Zimbabweans in all walks of life have a ingrained losing resignation mentality (sorry if this offends but it’s tru...

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

There’s no point in being on the safe side. Whether we lose 1-0 or 2-0 is irrelevant surely? We need a win to level it. I think they should open their shoulders and try and get 50-80 toute suite and then bowl. Rain is almost guaranteed to shorten this game. It’s drizzling where I am right now. Agre...

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

113 run lead, that's still really great. I'm astonished that we bowled them out so cheaply with this attack, take a bow Sikandar Raza. So what do we need in the third innings? If we scrape our way to 100, that sets up an interesting little 4th innings chase albeit not a really troubling one. If we ...

I am willing to admit here that I see what people meant about not scoring runs affecting you if wickets start tumbling. Sri Lanka fell into that trap today
Glad to see you’ve seen the light😂😂😂😂

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

Excellent performance from Zimbabwe.No surprise to me whatsoever that we got a first innings lead. Even India would struggle abit, all set up by a good batting performance anchored by a very good RUN RATE. This should give us enough time to bowl Sri Lanka out. I believe 280 is more than enough to wi...

Anti-run rate brigade wont be happy today:lol: great first day from Zimbabwe much improved from 1st test, id take 350/6 over 180/2 anyday. very positive cricket. apart from the Raza dismissal everybody else got really good balls (maybe Kasuza should have played a shot, he played well though especial...

Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

this is very impressive from Taylor and Kasuza is feeding off Taylor's attitude, this is straight out the the test cricket manual. you reverse the pressure by playing shots and manipulating the field. positive mindset. as im typing Kasuza decides to have a brain freeze and revert back to the Modus o...
