anything under 270 would be excellent for zimbabwe.

We can chase anything under that, over that i feel our inexperince will get the better of us.

Just nipping in for two minutes - definitely not the best of starts for Zim. While Price and Utseya have done a good job bringing down the run-rate (and if Dabengwa can manage a few more at 2/over!), we really need to get some wickets - if WI still have 8 wickets in hand come the last 10 overs, they'll really be able to open up...

Maybe you should stick around for a few more minutes. A hat-trick would be nice :lol:

If I though it would work, I'd hang around all day..! :) Dabengwa doing his best to make up for a poor performance on Friday, it seems...

Dabengwa and Utseya getting through the overs very quickly - good ploy. If we get through another 5 in good time and restrict WI, they are going to all of a sudden find themselves under a bit of pressure, which will hopefully create opportunities for the bowlers.

Big difference with WI today is that they're prepared to go for the boundaries - playing far more agressively than in the first match. Still, if Zim can keep them to around 5/over overall, then we'll still have a target that's in the region we can chase...
