Hey guys. Do you think fielding first was a good idea?

Certainly, wi are on the back foot so pressure them early, and its worked a treat so far.

It has worked so far, definitely. Need to get Gayle out soon though.

At the moment, Zimbabwe are bowling wonderfully well.

i reckon it was a good idea fielding first. put presure on them early like chigumbura's done. i rather see us chase a big total then defend it.

Funny you should say that. Besides yesterday, Zimbabwe's best victories in recent times have been batting second (vs Bangladesh at Harare, vs Australia at Cape Town).

Brent conceded the first 4 of the innings - seemed to be a poor delivery right on leg. Bowlers are becoming expensive now, West Indies run rate has crept up to 2.52 :lol:

Time for a bowling change. Please bring the spinners on, the quicks are getting hammered. Price and Utseya in tandem for 12 overs, then give Chibhabha a crack.

the spinners should not be an option during the powerplays, Gayle will just put them away.

once the 20th over hits they will be brought on.

11.4 Chibhabha to Gayle, FOUR
11.3 Chibhabha to Gayle, no run, short of a length delivery outside the off stump, punches off the back foot to the fielder along the ground at extra-cover.
11.2 Chibhabha to Gayle, no run, back of a length delivery and into Gayle, works to the on side.
11.1 Chibhabha to Gayle, FOUR, an elegant looking shot from Gayle as he drives a pitched-up delivery in the gap between extra-cover and mid-off to the fence.
Not really sure what other options we have. This is why I think Mpofu should be in the team.
