Hello everyone and congratulations on Zimbabwe's highly convincing win.I was one of the fortunates who watched it live in India on star sports.
It was great to see Zimbabweans giving their 100 % despite a few uncharacteristic misfields. It was a delight to see jersey number 7-Ray Price. A lot has been written about WI's reluctance to press for win. As i saw the match live i can say it was the most one-sided Zim win i ever saw. Truly they lost the mt bcoz of that Chanderpaul-morton partnership. Never at any point there was slightest hint of accleration. Having seen their response, i can say we should not fear WI and hope for 5-0 result.

I'm always a fan of Stuey and his 36 ball 50 was marvellous. Chams again proved that WI is his favourite opposition. The injury concerns are not tht serious and both should be available for sunday mt.
I think we have good chance to win 2nd ODI too as Taylor, Vusi and Tibly should fire in this one. Go Zimbabwe, rock the world.
Thanks for creating such a superb forum. Being far away in India i was craving for more news on Zim. Great work buddies

Through hard work, determination and a bit of luck :lol: :)
My deepest thanks to Victor for taking the time to answer my questions. He revealed that Ed Rainsford has been one of the toughest outswing bowlers he has faced this year - at least we know Rainsford is still on the club cricket scene and hasn't disappeared to England or something!

Thanks for the brief overview Dr Situ, welcome to the forum. Glad you like it! :)
Unfortunately, few of us (if any) managed to see this game - so it is a great relief to hear that Sibanda and Chibhabha do not have major injury concerns. Also very nice to hear that it was a very one-sided win!

well Keith Dabengwa can be the guy who can be replaced by any speaclist bowler either Mpofu or maruma can be tried in place for Keith Dabengwa .other wise team looks to me great and balance for 2nd ODI. BEST OF LUCK FOR ZIM.

Deabengwa is one of our form batsmen at the moment, and lengthens out batting order, so dropping him i dont feel is a viable option. His bowling also would be more effective than pace on the Harare pitch.

Williams is also waiting but i feel he will be left out.

he was not required to bAt in last game and he did not bowl too much either so batter to replace him with some one who can do one thing well. either pick a batter or pick a bowler i think maruma can even prove more handy if the pitch remain same and zim bat well his spinning option can proved really tough for WI if he be able to control his line. well williams can be the most suitable option if he fits he really should be included.

In the first win, even our new ball bowlers were unable to bowl full spell so that speaks volume of our depth.
As i was watchin it live so i can assure you all that both justice and Masakadza bowled superb second spell in death overs. Especially Hamilton's two yorkers to chanderpaul were simply superb.
