This is classic Chigumbura... two sixes, 19 from 11 balls. 300 still possible at 6/285 with 2 overs to go.

T Maruma c Wilson b Connell 2

That doesn't help. 300 still possible, though, if Prosper can just rotate the strike and let Elton do his thing...

EDIT: Like that. :)

31 from 17 for Chigumbura including 3 sixes, 7/301... still 2 balls to go!

Great batting!

Great batting!
..and precisely why he should have been in sooner. Job done, though.

49.6 Connell to Chigumbura, OUT, fullish one on middle and he slogs that to deep square leg and Botha is under it and he takes a comfortable catch to end the innings
E Chigumbura c Botha b Connell 33 (19b 1x4 3x6) SR: 173.68
Ohhh :(

That little 33 would have been a nice average boost had he stayed not out :(

great innings. Masakadza to start us off was great. Taibu and Chibabaha to keep that work going was good. And good contributions to Matsikenery and Chigumbura.
just need our bowlers to bowl well now.

Here we go. Boom Boom and Dots taking the new ball, which seems a bit strange...
