[Match thread] Zimbabwe vs South Africa - Final

Post by brmtaylor.com admin »

Big game tonight. I think a win today would be a huge accomplishment for this team irrespective of the status of this series. Luckily none of that rubbish 13-a-side stuff was going on; they were proper games and I actually reckon there's a chance that in a couple of decades time these matches could get upgraded to full international status anyway.

I think bowling first might be the best option for Zimbabwe. South Africa have shown their middle order is quite shaky, so I reckon it's better to get Amla and Levi to be taking risks (which they'd have to do more batting first) in order to get them out and expose the other batsmen.

Masakadza has been in great touch this series, he just needs to keep doing his thing. Sibanda just needs to support him by rotating the strike; we have a long tail so the longer those two are out there the better.

Mpofu and Muzhunge have both had a good tournament. Muzhunge has pretty much signed his papers for the ICC World Twenty20 on his efforts so far, and good on him. Cremer has starred. Jarvis has had a bit of a mixed tournament, some overs have been brilliant and some have been atrocious. But he is a strike bowler and that is to be expected; although it would be nicer if his bad overs went for something like 10-12 instead of 16-18.

I reckon a score of 160 is par based on the last couple of efforts; anything less is hard to defend but anything more will be challenging.
