So, now we are at a stage where we play almost the entire national side and win at the last moment, huffing and puffing our way through, against some random guys from India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka. :? :roll:

Yep, but we have Bobby to see us through.
Peterhouse U14C 4th change bowler and no. 10 batsman (but only because Aaron didn't have a bat).

Chamu and Mire swapped roles as Chamu teed off at the start and Mire took a slower approach, both back in the hut now. Raza and Williams really need some runs here both have been very poor for a while now .....

Cremer again. He is the one Zimbabwe bowler who has the X factor against these minnows at the moment.

Double strike by Cremer but why is he bringing himself on so late.

Unbeaten century for Williams a timely return to form, also good contributions from the whole batting lineup .....

Cremer doing the damage with the ball .....

Just curious why are we playing all these associates who don't have ODI status when we could be playing ODI matches and gaining ranking points against Hong Kong, UAE and PNG?

I think you can only gain points against the other 11 teams on the ODI table.
