Back from lunch. Seems I missed quite a bit...

I was doubtful about the Utseya / Chigumbura opening combination as well, but it certainly seems to have worked. Price is being his usual miserly self, too. Looking good...

2/14 from 4.1 for Maruma. With the asking rate at 8.98 it's just a formality from here on in... hopefully that means bowling them out and not allowing them to bat out the full 50 overs.

It's hard to tell without seeing it, but my guess is that Ireland's bowling and batting has been below par today, I was expecting it to be closer than this. Let's see how we go against Kenya.

Mind you, if Ireland were playing well today it means Zimbabwe is more than a cut above the associates... I guess what I'm trying to say is that it would be nice if today's performance was because Zimbabwe were playing well, and not because Ireland are poor.

And Maruma gets another wicket. 6/72

RW Price (sla) 5.0 2 5 0 1.00
I'm beginning to think the wrong person has been nicknamed "Dots"...
