Jongwe seems to me to be a Zimbabwean Andile Phehlukwayo, a bowling all rounder with no real pace but that ability to pick up wickets and bat occasionally well. Unfortunately just like his SA counterpart is liable to regular bad days at the office but in reality is too important to leave out entirely.

Wellington masakadza has been very average in this tournament
Wellington has always been very average. I don't know where people got the idea that he's the next Daniel Vettori. Him and Ngarava and Jongwe (today's heroics notwithstnading) are three cricketers that really won't cut the mustard.

Williams, Raza, Ervine, and Chatara are so far carrying this team. Not sure how Chatara is doing it, to be honest, as I thought he was past his prime. Looks like Wesley is hitting the wall and the next 2 years will be critical to determining if his career goes the Sibanda route or if he can follow the footsteps of Taylor, WIlliams.

Blessing is solid without being a world beater. I expect him to pick up a big haul at some point at this level.
Ngarava is very good. He and Blessing would make it to SL and Bd definitely.
Definitely not BD. Rajitha and Fernando also look very good.

At the moment it looks like zimbabwe will play either PNG or netherlands in the semi. PNG seem to be doing well in current game. Things can change though quickly

This is important this game.
If we lose, this is now a clutch ‘all of nothing’ match against the Dutch and I’m just not overly confident.

Current odds are:
1.44 Zim
2.75 USA

That sounds about right to me. Maybe slightly complimentary to Zim. I’d have them at 1.6 myself.

Surely even if zimbabwe get to the 20/20 world cup Houghton must know that he needs to strengthen the squad after almost being embarrased by likes of Jersey

Nick welch needs to be offered some wonga

I think it's quite unfair to put so much importance on one game to qualify for an event like the World Cup, that too in a T20 format.

Everyone in the world knows that Zimbabwe are a better side than PNG, PNG have won just one game and sneaked into the qualifiers, yet here they are, if by chance they win, they make it to the WC ahead of a far better side.

It should either be another round of 4, with top 2 from each group qualifying and playing each other, or have some kind of an eliminator/qualifier format... This Semi Final stuff is just stupid.

Win or lose that's not a matter :lol:
If we win we got a trophy but going to placed in a tough group, if lose not a good look in international cricket circuit but will get a easier group.
A relief final day :D

Maybe we will see marumani in the final. Chakhabva can be rested as he was clearly struggling today when he was keeping
