How would Zimbabwe defeat Australia by an innings? They would need to hit 1300 in record time

James, what do you guys feed these players? I'm glad they were (or were they?) on a diet couple months back. WHEW.

Zimbabue is all out for 239. I think they are better than us in batting, while we might be slightly better than them in bowling now.

I do dearly miss a certain someone who predicted a Zimbabwe win over Australia (and a BD win over Australia along with a 4-0 trashing of Australia by India). Here's to amitting:

Aus barely got to 735 and was FORCED to declare as they ran out of quality batsmen against increasing pressure from the strong zimbabwe attack. In reply, Zim (ekbar bat shesh korey abar bat korche) rounded up their first innings for a formidable 239 to give Australia a fighting chance to get back in the match. Lehmaan and Waugh remained wicketless as opener gripper quickly posted his 50 and wishart slogged the aussie bowling to reach his 46.

Zimbabwe need to score only 496 runs to make Australia bat again. A simple task, unless they continue to play the friendly vicitors.

This is too good. Is it really Tehsin bhai back, or Amit hacked Tehsin bhai's nick!

I was going to say - muchimporved performance by Zimbabwe in the 2nd innings but then I saw the bowling score card:

Zim 64 for 2, 21.4 overs
Lehmann 4 0 10 0
Martyn 2 0 10 0

are they bored ? do they want to extend the match to the fifth day ? Bat again may be ?

Probably keeping the front line bowlers safe from possible injury. This test has truly turned into a picnic unlike BD series.

Australia treating Zimbabwe pretty lightly. They could have easily finished them off. The result could have been an innings and 300 runs. Here's the aussie bowling:

Bowling O M R W
Lee 28 6 70 1 (2nb, 2w)
Gillespie 3 0 6 2
MacGill 3.4 1 10 0
Bichel 22 11 55 3 (3nb)
Lehmann 26.2 12 54 3
Martyn 10 3 26 0
Waugh 7 1 26 0 (1w)
Ponting 5 1 15 0

Looks like Lehmann is enough for teams like Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. That's just pathetic. 48 overs bowled by the lke of Lehmann, Martn, Waugh and POnting.

Hope this breaks zimbabwe's morale and keeps them down for almost a year. :)

O dear don't give us heart attacks, its the other match NZ-IND which was drawned.

Match is still on with the Aussies needing just one wkt to win. However, with shower looming to washout the final day, the Zims might get just lucky.

October 12, 2003, 10:00 PM
Australia 735/6d
Zimbabwe 239 & 321/9 (123.2 ov) (f/o) And Counting..

Last partnership continue to pile up runs!
