Well, Chigumbura is back into the attack and kept Chanderpaul under control. It would be tempting to leave Chigumbura for later... perhaps give him one more over.

Perfect situation for zimbabwe to be in right now.

If we can win from this position then its certainly looking up for us.

Welcome to the forum zimdan :)
You are in Bulawayo? Is that match on TV? If so, how are Zimbabwe looking in the field, etc?

And yes, good situation. Price and Utseya bowling... if we can just get Chanderpaul out it would be great :)

I am in bulawayo but unfortunatly the match isnt being shown in Zimbabwe or SA as far as im aware, its only on star cricket and star sports india looking the schedules.

Thanks for the welcome, its about time we have put some good performances in, Robin Brown has done wonders for us.

Rumours are also about that Streaky coud also make a comeback for the series against pakistan in january.

Ah, okay. That's bad luck. Been looking for Star Sports India stream all day, best I can find is Star Sports, who have yachting :lol:

Wow, wouldn't that be a bonus! Streak could be the difference in this Zimbabwe side... Price, Taibu, Streak... all world class.

WI Required RR 7.52

Hopefully, because i feel we are really showing our potential now we have got rid of Curran. He was good but far too defensive.

WI are struggling at the moment, price isnt giving anything away.

Yes, Curran was good, keeping Zimbabwe competitive (albeit far too defensive) at a difficult time. Robin Brown I like a lot more though, he inspired me after the Twenty20 win when he said "We'll party after we beat England tonight"... that's the sort of positive talk you want to hear!

8 overs since the last boundary. Have you got radio commentary in Bulawayo zimdan?

Spot FM normally do it in harare but it doesnt seem to be on, its a pity because the public of zimbabwe cannot watch unless we go to the games.

i will be going to the bulawayo games though as there is no TV coverage.

Ah, that's a shame :(

What sort of crowds do you normally get in Bulawayo?
