No worries, we're glad you like it! Don't give up hope of not seeing the game, there is a possibility of an online stream but we won't know until closer to the time (hopefully we will find one over the next hour and a half) :)

Zim lineup confirmed: V Sibanda, BRM Taylor, CJ Chibhabha, T Taibu, H Masakadza , E Chigumbura, S Matsikenyeri, T Duffin, KM Dabengwa, P Utseya, GB Brent.

NO RAY PRICE
NO CHRIS MPOFU

Brent, Utseya, Chigumbura the only specialist bowlers. Unbelievable selection to leave Price out. I'm shocked. By including Duffin and Dabengwa they are clearly putting all their eggs in one basket hoping for 320+. Surely.

Some confusion now. Ray Price is playing, Gary Brent is not - according to Cricinfo.
Zimbabwe 1 Brendan Taylor, 2 Vusi Sibanda, 3 Terry Duffin, 4 Hamilton Masakadza, 5 Tatenda Taibu (wk), 6 Chamu Chibhabha, 7 Stuart Matsikenyeri, 8 Elton Chigumbura, 9 Prosper Utseya (capt), 10 Ray Price, 11 Keith Dabengwa.
Taylor run out for 27 :(

Edit: unbelievable, now Cricinfo say Brent is playing, Duffin is not. Who knows what to believe.

Current news on the sides is:
Zimbabwe: Vusi Sibanda, Brendan Taylor, Chamu Chibhabha, Tatenda Taibu (wk), Hamilton Masakadza, Prosper Utseya (cpt), Gary Brent, Elton Chigumbura, Stuart Matsikenyeri, Keith Dabengwa, Ray Price.
West Indies: Chris Gayle, Dwayne Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Runako Morton, Rawl Lewis, Daren Powell, Denesh Ramdin, Ravi Rampaul, Jerome Taylor, Marlon Samuels, Devon Smith.

Chibhabha and Maskadza seem to be settling well - need them to put in a good partnership now to cover for the early losses. Still some useful batting to come, though (if that team list is correct..!).

5/193 after 41 overs. Zimbabwe aren't doing too badly. Chigumbura is at the crease which is the main thing, he can start accelerating soon. Hopefully 250 is still on the cards.

Chigumbura 17*
Matsikenyeri 6*

Stuey & Elton are playing it around nicely at the moment. I predict around 270, if we don't lose any more wickets...

270 is possible at this rate... Last 5 ovs 44/0 RR 8.80
Still have Brent to come for some quick boundaries too.

bhejafry, thanks for joining! Bad luck you weren't able to find a Zimbabwe stream, hopefully for future series eh? :)

I have a sneaking suspicion we won't need him - these two will close the innings out.
Current rate: 10.6. Can't remember the last time Zim scored at that rate against a Full Member...

They are looking impressive. Have to eat my words about dropping Matiskenyeri now...
