Re: Match Thread - 1st ODI - Zimbabwe vs West Indies

I note that five of the current Zim squad (Matsikenyeri, Taibu, Sibanda, Price and Brent) were in the pre-dispute side that played in the last match where Zimbabwe beat the West Indies, in Harare in 2003 (WI won the series 3-2). That's not a bad turnover of players, considering...

Re: Match Thread - 1st ODI - Zimbabwe vs West Indies

Spoke too soon about them finishing the innings though - although very good effort by Chigumbura. Utseya in.

I have a sneaking suspicion we won't need him - these two will close the innings out.
Current rate: 10.6. Can't remember the last time Zim scored at that rate against a Full Member...

Re: Match Thread - 1st ODI - Zimbabwe vs West Indies

Stuey & Elton are playing it around nicely at the moment. I predict around 270, if we don't lose any more wickets...

Something that Queen's really need ...

Re: Match Thread - 1st ODI - Zimbabwe vs West Indies

...and Zimbabwe's pre-series rankings . Some of the players featured aren't playing this time around, but I'd like to think everyone else should be looking to improve their position. As for Zim's ODI ranking, we're probably too far behind Ireland to catch them this time around, but a win or two shou...
