Whilst I’m reminiscing Zim is crashing and burning.
This is going to be a serious ending. Fasten your seatbelts belts.

Regis is best when he gets his head down and doesn't worry about the scoring rate. Raza needs to get us into the lead and then some.

Oh no, it looked like these two would guide us to safety with ease. Williams with all that talent averages in sub 30s in tests is a frustrating thing.

Taylor and Williams both should have cashed in better on a pitch like this.

I'm not panicking yet. As I said yesterday, the aim is:
So let's say 1/20 at stumps.
3/90 at lunch.
6/170 at tea.
Which we are on track for, and we can afford to lose one of these guys at the crease. I have tremendous faith in Tiripano.

If we have one more guy make 30 or 40, I think we'll be safe.

Googly seems to watch cricket for a living, England one week, South Africa the next and finally one in Zim! Maybe he’s an England selector?!

SL would back themselves to chase 150 off the final session at 5 an over. To get there, Zim needs another 180 runs off 25 ish overs.

Given those numbers, the only way ZIM avoids defeat is by batting till stumps.
