Re: Match Thread | Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka 2020 | 2nd Test | Harare

We could well be all out for 200 in terrific time today, which will keep the run-rate crowd pleased. But it's a surefire way to lose this game in three-and-a-half days. As much as it was fun to watch Taylor's run-a-ball fifty, I liked the way we batted in the first match better.

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

I guess the only realistic change with that squad would be Mumba for Ainsley. If Kazusa cant play then bring Burl in. Seems reasonable to me. Williams is probably the best spinner in the country anyway. If Kasuza's concussion doesn't ease up, we could bring Burl in and have him open. Let's see what...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

In the end the difference was 1 of their star players stood up and scored big on a flat deck. None of our top players scored a 100. That's where the game was lost. There were runs to be scored. It was actually easier to bat on day 3 because the sun was out. I also don't think you can blame someone ...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

The way we lose is so soul crushing, not sure why we keep coming back to this team. CWCQ, the last U19 match, the SL home test, this one, and so on and son and so on... Why do we fans desire this suffering and keep coming back? I don't know :( Maybe it makes the good moments better? The win vs Bang...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Soft dismissal in the end :( Not sure why he tried to cut instead of a full blooded pull shot. Nothing is reaching the boundary and the field was in :( Well, it's been an interesting match. Probably went about as well as we could have expected given we haven't played a Test in about 25 years. Regis ...

Googly - 2 overs to swap. But that's not going to matter. These two either bat til stumps or SL win.

Chakabva could reach cult hero status if he pulls a Faf du Plessis here. Nyauchi to face 10 balls max.

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

The new ball really hurt us tonight. What's so sad about this is we're probably going to end up falling about 30 minutes short of a draw.
If only it had rained a bit more as expected... :(

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Not good Regis. Zero situation awareness. Not even willing to learn from previous experiences. He can still be the hero though, but it's 95/5 in SL's favour now. So in order to save the game he probably does need to take a few risks, that would include throwing the bat at the last ball of the over ...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Ah, damn. Jarvis gone.
Chakabva has to farm the strike from this point on, surely someone is giving him that message.

But I don't see how they can survive at this point, 20 overs is too long. Weather report says 25% chance of rain...

Re: Match Thread : Sri Lanka Tour Of Zimbabwe 2020 | 1st Test | Zimbabwe V/s Sri Lanka | Harare

Assuming Chakabva hangs around of course, if Jarvis can last 30 balls that gets us to about 10 overs to go. 4 down, 26 to go. Or as The Dogg says, for every extra 10 runs we get you can take an over off that. This is why Test cricket is great, there's a genuine chance we can survive this. Although i...
