ZIM won the toss.

Jarvis out with a disc bulge...sounds painful and sounds like he will be out for a long while :o

Nice to see mumba back in Zimbabwe colours. What we need is someone with a bit of pace for sure. Thinking about it mutombodzi is probably a good selection. He has a googly and will offer more than ndlovu

Not sure if picking Mutombodzi is really inspiring just seems a safe bet hoping he might be able to nick a few wickets and add some extra batting

After watching Mutombodzi in Bangladesh he looks pretty average I can't see causing many issues nor being able to hold up an end

Zimbabwe really should have went with 4 seamers IMO

From the pitch report we'd better not expect scintillating strokeplay and quick scoring.

lets go Zim, so far its a here we go again moment, ultra conservative start, lets hope we open up abit more because if we continue being ultra conservative this test will be over in 3 days.

First time watching with the commentary turned up this morning, and one can't fault Dirk for talking up the product. Seems we're in for another moan-fest.
