Usman Qadirs googly is very average, yes it turns but it's obviously pickable when they showed the screen, just orthodox back of the hand googly nothing special.

Reason why he is looking so good is the Zim batsmen have been ore meditating absolutely everything to him, hence why both Raza and chigumbura got out the same way effectively, as with madhevere who looks like he is gonna have to work on his game against leg spin since he was trying to sweep a half volley that he could easily have tanked back down the ground.

Burl has done well here to steady things for us. He's not exactly cut lose but the wicket, again, looks sticky. He's done well to nudge it around. Hopefully we can get a few a few boundaries.

9 balls left, it's on Burl to go ham now. No way we set a defendable total, so every run we score is that much more time given for Blessing and co to get a few wickets.

Burl's just smoked a 90m 6 off the last ball. Well batted, he played really sensibly today. Not his fault that his team mates threw their wickets away. Did the best he could in the circumstances.

Jesus Qadir is a bit of a find, isn't he?!
He's bowled so nicely in this game. His googly is as good as I have ever seen on international cricket. Better than Kumble's obvious change of action and better than Tahir and Rashid Khan's. Probably on par with Kaneria.
Good find for Pakistan.
Hopefully Ryan Burl can help us limp towards 140?
Qadir's googly is actually pretty easy to pick, from what I've seen so far. His googly comes out of the back of the hand, while his legbreak comes out of the side of the hand. Our batsmen obviously weren't trying to read his googlies out of the hand.

Rashid Khan's googly is incredibly difficult to pick. His arm action is extremely quick and the wrist position for his leg break is almost the same as that for his googly. He bowls both the deliveries from the back of the hand.

Burl is such a good player, got good technique too, looks like he can be more useful in ODIs and tests as well.

Burl reminds me so much of the manner in which Dawid Malan plays, yes he doesnt exactly have the same record, but he has the same strong shigs and weaknesses, he is far too far down the order for a guy who needs 10 or so balls to get his eye in. Should be minimum of 3

Burl 32*(22), that bodes well for the future. He should be batting ahead of Raza. Chamu better not be playing in the next series. Muzarabani, I wanna see him nab 2 or 3 wickets.

Watching ZImbabwe play is a real depression-fest huh, wonder why I keep coming back for more and more.
