News: Zimbabwe make 295 v SA in 3rd ODI….

Zimbabwe has always been a brunt of our jokes, and criticism. Some things happenned for this series which were….. well …… positive. Taibu returned, and returned with a bang. The other good things were that Sibanda and SC Williams were both playing. I have seen SC Williams and he looks like a great player at the ODI level. In addition to these 3 there is always Taylor, who was for quite some time the only class player in the Zim team. Then there are always Masakadza and Matsikenyri, followed by the hitter Elton Chigumbura.

Zim batting looked better in these games than they have ever since the player revolt began. Their bowling is quite weak. Mpofu and Mupariwa are effective bowlers, but neither is a top bowler. I think Zim has lost out on Payangara for good, so they need to look for some wicket taking bowlers.

Prosper Utseya is usually very economical, but he was unable to hold up the reputation. I think Zim may have gotten even closer, and may even have won the game if Utseya had given away his usual 25 runs in 10 overs instead of 60-70.

    According to Ray Mali Zimbabwe will be the number one ODI team in three to four years. Chingoka and Bvute must have wined and dined him well in Harare.

    Chingoka and Bvute are the worst crook in any cricket organization. by the end of three years they would have lost every development coach to private schools who pay well compared to their very low salary ($4500000.00)which doesn’t help coaches at all. players will continue with their dismal performance so long as the side their playing has good left arm spin.

    Chingoka and Bvute are the center of all corruption within that organization. Spectators only come to enjoy the booze.

    Zimbabwe should try and get experienced good players back! the likes of Andy and Grand Flower,Andy blighnaut, Sean Irvine, Heath Streak, Stewart Casile etc to beef up their current side which lack in genuine pace bowlers!!?

    They should cut down on number of provinces playing cricket as quantity is less important that quality of cricket being played
