Indeed. Can anyone remember the last time Zimbabwe batted through a day, or posted 400+? I think it's been a while...
SuperSport challenge game 1 :P

It is pleasing to see a century from Sean Williams. Hopefully this will send a message to the selectors that he needs to be included in the team. Not that form is the main criteria for making the Zim team these days!
Neil Johnson, Alistair Campbell, Murray Goodwin, Andy Flower (w), Grant Flower, Dave Houghton, Guy Whittall, Heath Streak (c), Andy Blignaut, Ray Price, Eddo Brandes

South African Composite XI - 3/34. Mpofu has 2, Chibhabha has 1.

To win, SAC XI need 3.4 an over. Zimbabwe need 7 wickets. I'd say we will see a result today, but another few wickets would make things quite comfortable.

2 for Mpofu, 1 each for Chibhabha, Utseya and Chigumbura - can't see Composite batting out the day now... :)
Only downside of winning is that it kinda reinforces the selection problems...

South African Composite XI require another 139 runs with 3 wickets remaining
Rain isn't the worst thing possible. It would be nice to lose a few overs to put the game beyond all doubt. I'd really like to get these wickets quickly - the batsmen were both settled, a short break could break their rhythm.

It will be interesting to see what happens when play resumes.

...and Zim wrap it up, winning by 134 runs. I'm not going to complain too much about a 3-0 series sweep - even if they did make it more difficult for themselves than it needed to be...
