I’ve seen a few scorecards of these u19’s, the big problem they have is nobody ever goes on to make a big score.
It’s unusual to see 3x50 without one guy getting 100.
They need to work on that as well. Against a big side one guy needs 100 if you’re to win.
50s are the Zimbabwean hundred.
They feel they have done their bit once they get it.
Sean Williams is the king of it.

I recall Stephen Fleming saying in an interview that when he was young and No were struggling they/he had a mindset that a 50 was exceptional and it’s something he had to override in his later career.
Good example of what I mean.
And watch an Aussie test match. They don’t raise their bat at 50, only at hundred. The half century is virtually meaningless. Our guys are jumping in the air for joy when they score one.

There’s an amusing query on twitter asking whether Utseya has enlisted the help of a faith healer in the change rooms prior to the games :lol: :lol:
I’m going with yes. There’s a Moslem in there, he’s doomed. :lol:

Speaking of Utseya and Zim players carrying on after scoring 50, he is the only one I can remember carrying on (apart Blessing Mahwire when he scored his Test 50 v NZ which was ok) Utseya scored 50 against India in 2013 it was the 1st ODI where Zimbabwe really should have won that game, Jarvis had Darwan caught off a no-ball then BT dropped him in a exact replay of that delivery, Darwan was then dropped again although this time he was over 100.

In reply Hamilton & Vusi got Zim into a great position before both guys threw it away and BT was run-out for not much. Even still Zimbabwe were in with a chance but Utseya decided to knock the singles and twos around to get himself to 50 where he carried on and celebrated like he just scored a 100 in a match winning performance. Hisselfishness cost Zimbabwe any chance of a victory.
