Chats 116 km/h bowling, he's definitely not at his best.

Wicket, it'll help Chatara's confidence, especially since it's Azam. :W:

Safe hands as well, what's not to like about Wes.

There is something called a slower ball.

Going from 124 max. to 116, I'd rather call this 'a subtle change of pace'.

Nice one Blessing.

Think Wellington may be worth ago instead of Chisoro. I hope Burl gets another chance but I am not sure that he will.

Will the captain fall on his sword?

Zimbabwe missing Peter Moor as finisher.
He’s never finished a game, ever. Where’s this come from?
Moor is too talented to just be left at home I think, but it’s where to fit him in.

Burl I think is a brilliant batter, he’s just been massively underused up top. He should have been opening in the ODI’s
Moor has got big hitting skills, specially in handling spinners. Ryan Burl fits either as an opener or n.o 3. He takes time to settle, batting at 6 or 7 in T20 will not allow him to waste balls he had to deliver right from the first ball.

I'm sure they'll drop Burl and give Shumba a go, which would be unfair considering that I saw on twitter that Chamu has averaged 11 in his last 23 ODI and T20 innings.
It's almost at the point where he himself needs to call time on his international career because the "selectors" are clearly not going to. Give him a life managerial post and let's move forward.

Looked like a fairly comfortable chase for Pakistan.

The things we did wrong were the simple things. Misfields, terrible lines in our bowling. Lack of feet movement when batting.

It's really quite clear that the coaches are not up to it. We need some proper coaches and selectors who push the players and don't take shit, and the board need to stay out of the actual cricket side of things.
