utseya and Chigumbura i rekon is a good move for opening bowlers. Mpofu be more effective once the powerplays go

I don't agree with Utseya opening the bowling, it is a defensive tactic. We've got 300 odd runs on the board, we should start with Mpofu and Chigumbura, we need to play with an attacking mindset.

In a Twenty20 or maybe a low scoring ODI, then you can roll the dice with a move like this... but it's so strange to do it when we are in such a good position.

Having said all that, it looks like the move has paid dividends. Perhaps it is a wicket for spinners like the ones in Canada were :)

I can see Chibhabha getting a bowl soon. He's our only other fast bowling option, maybe we can get away with it against Ireland.
