Match thread: Pakistan vs Zimbabwe (4th ODI)

Post by brmtaylor.com admin » Wed Jan 30, 2008 12:22 am

4th ODI
4th ODI between Pakistan and Zimbabwe.

Date: January 30, 2008 (1 day match)
Start of play: 6:00AM GMT
Venue: Faisalabad

Zimbabwe XI: Vusi Sibanda, Hamilton Masakadza (c), Sean Williams, Tatenda Taibu (wk), Brendan Taylor, Elton Chigumbura, Chamu Chibhabha, Keith Dabengwa, Gary Brent, Raymond Price, Chris Mpofu

Pakistan squad: Shoaib Malik (c), Fawad Alam, Kamran Hussain, Khalid Latif, Khurram Manzoor, Misbah-ul-Haq, Mohammad Yousuf, Nasir Jamshed, Sarfraz Ahmed (wk), Shahid Afridi, Sohail Khan, Sohail Tanvir, Wahab Riaz, Younis Khan

Injury concerns: Prosper Utseya, Tawanda Mupariwa
Live stream: http://www.bhejafry.net/livesports1?ch=31 (likely)



Mupariwa is injured, Mpofu comes in to replace him. Keith Dabengwa manages to hold on to his spot - perhaps playing Maruma would have been a better idea though, he is a better bowler (ie. he could have bowled 10 overs in tandem with Price) and on recent form maybe a better batsman...

Openers fail again - shock. At least Taibu and Williams are putting up a stand.

Yeah, good charge by him to finish things off. Only thing that worries me now is that without Utseya and Mupariwa, the bowling might not be up to the job of containing Pakistan - they only need 4.9/over to win. If any of the Pakistan guys are allowed to cut loose, we'll be in trouble...

Khalid Latif c Williams b Mpofu 19
Would have preferred to see Malik go - he's beginning to look dangerous - but that's a start...

Mpofu and Chigumbura seem to be getting a bit of a choke on the scoring. Any pressure helps...
