Last time Zimbabwe have gotten one over us is in Bulawayo 2013. We haven't lost in 8+ years.

Very flimsy ground to judge it on, if so; it was a completely different motion of the bat.Kriterion_BD wrote: ↑Sun Jul 18, 2021 10:50 pmI think the reasoning was that although he had *finished* his stroke in terms of intent, the physical act of the bat swing never stopped. It went from attempted ramp continously onto the stumps. For me this was 50-50, I would have been satisfied if they ruled dead ball and not out.
Good appeal by BD, arguably debatable decision from the umpires.
guys new, wouldnt be too harsh on himTapsC2 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 19, 2021 7:23 amHe shouldn't be hitting his wicket with his follow through in the first place. Practicing or not. That's all I'm saying. Basic training that all coaches from junior level stress about. It was an accident yes and he should not have been given out according to most people's interpretation of the laws.zimbos_05 wrote: ↑Mon Jul 19, 2021 5:55 amWhat position? It was a freak accident. Not like he was deep in his crease and stepped back to play a shot. How can you blame BT for it.
Had that been Maruma you would have understood what I'm saying better. I also think he almost hit his wicket earlier too
The person I'm upset with over the incident is Langton Rusere. He should have done better but our own umpires have a history of being harsh on their own guys, even in domestic games
