Sri Lanka going at 3 an over. Now if we use the stats and calculations that were being used here they would need to bat until around lunch on day 4 to be 150 ahead and hope there is no rain which is highly unlikely .then we must also collapse in the second innings

Orrrrr we bundle them out for less than 150, make em follow on and win by an innings.

I dunno, might be the optimist in me.

I know he doesn't set the world a light, but is there a more likeable cricketer than Donald Tiripano? He shows the same grit and determination that we were renowned for in the 1990s.

One hell of an effort by Zimbabwe to play out a massive 148 overs! I agree they haven't scored as much as they should have, but this was a resilient performance. :W:

Well done Zimbabwe. :W: We will have to see how it goes tomorrow, very important day for both teams.

Because he is in a post quota world.
Donald and the two openers had to FIGHT to get into the team.

They weren’t gifted spots like the 2005-2011 era +2013/14.

It’s why Kasuza played the warm up tourney in SA and Prince lost weight and changed his game.

Ok the flip, it’s why Matsikenyeri plateaued young and Sibanda never hit the heights.

And why Bavuma and countless South Africans are struggling now!

You need focus, commitment and sheer will.
Some of our guys are discovering this inside them and I am hopeful it’s starting to show.

They'd have to bat till tea on day 4, if they continue at 3 an over. If they bat that long they will surely go at closer to 3.5 though which takes us to a bit after lunch on day 4. Which means ZIM will have to bat another 100 overs, and at 3 an over, leaves ZIM 150 ahead. Then with 60 overs left for SL to chase it down or for ZIM to take 10 more wickets. Assuming no rain of course.
