Yeah I would have too, but I understand why Taylor gave Waller a second over. Let's keep them to under 140, come on Muzhunge!

A very manageable target for Zimbabwe. Too bad I have to work and can't watch the second half of the match. Great to ee a big crowd at Harare Sports Club.

In hindsight it might have been better to give the final over to Mpofu; and yeah, good point maybe about giving Cremer one of Muzhunge's. He didn't have such a great outing today.

But chasing 147, well - it's definitely achievable. Only if the top order score the bulk of the runs though; we don't want to leave too many for Cremer to chase.

I agree with eugene. Great crowd in - any guesses as to how many thousand? I thought yesterday looked bigger and could have been pushing 8 to 10 - there was no room in the stands or on the embankment.

I think the offical capacity of HSC is 10,000 but that was before the redevelopment. At a guess i would say that the ground is 75-80% full so between 7 and 8 thousand which is a great effort for a cricket match now days in Zimbabwe

Superb error on cricinfo at the moment

Sibanda out for 23 in 17 minutes from 2 balls with 1 four, i bet him and Hammy are a bit knackered after running a 19

His strike rate 1150.00

:lol:

21 of that over from Peterson, massive 6 from Hamilton, keep to keep wickets in hand here with Cremer coming in at 7
