Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

Sangakkara dropped on 0! This could be costly!

Could have been Mupariwa's 50th wicket :(

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

Well, we already see that SL are one up on strategy. Jayawardene, one of the better players of spin, has come to open the innings. Clearly to handle the situation of Utseya opening the bowling, if it happens. No Williams today too. I fear the worst. Ah, good that Utseya has noticed this and has open...

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

Well, we have a lot to look forward to today. Hopefully another fighting effort by the boys is on the cards. Mendis has 48 wickets from 17 matches, and could become the fastest to 50 wickets in ODIs. Competition aside, whenever he gets it, he deserves it. He is already a role model for Sri Lankans t...

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

Well, another close defeat, but again, a lot of positives to take away from bowling department. If we only had another 30 runs on the board... :roll: Last two matches have been very encouraging signs for the team. Elsewhere, Bangladesh has crashed to 2 innings defeats in a row in SA. When Zim travel...

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

And Masakadza had gotten us off to such a good start, too... I have been saying these days that Masakadza has transformed himself into the Alistair Campbell mould. Throwing his wicket away when very well set and looking good for a 3 figure score. He is currently by far our best batsman, and over th...

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

williams out and dabengwa in Cricinfo says Williams is out due to illness. I fear this is the end of his career for Zimbabwe. I still believe he should have taken a firm decision long back, whatever it was. Be it sticking with Zimbabwe or moving on. This kind of oscillating decision making has not ...

We should have won it, and we should have bowled after winning the toss all the time. That's our strength, and it has been proved again today.

Masakadza has pretty much filled Taylor's shoes in recent times, but could not pull the win off today.

Re: Zimbabwe v Sri Lanka - ODI Series

Taibu is playing one shot. Reverse sweep. He has managed to handle the spin that way, but not scoring at the rate you would need at the moment...
