Zim bowlers are getting thrashed. This could turn out to be a massive score by the Windies if they don't take wickets soon. As I write Charles goes for 130. Windies 248/2 after 39 overs.

I expected Zimbabwe to get thrashed this match. They haven't played international cricket in ages. Sad to see that they don't get any matches really. That's why it's very important that they make every match count this series. I just hope they put some fight in but it'll be tough. The Windies are a tough team at home and plus they're on the rise.

273 is a good score. Windies openers have started nicely. Zim need wickets.

So is this fair umpiring. WI commentator is defending the WI umpire who did not ask for third umpire.
Biased umpiring at its best.

"Can you believe it, but why ZIM didn't appealed well enough...horrendous umpiring..." They did appeal. It's up to the umpire to ask for the television replay. But Zimbabwe should've asked for a review, surely.

how did johnson charles manage to get dropped the match after scoring a century? i know pollard came back in but really? that's a strange decision.

I think Johnson Charles was injured. I was jumping channels did not see the whole match.

Tiger Manc
February 24, 2013, 07:54 PM
Johnson Charles tweaked his hamstring muscles and was therefore rested. That run out decision was a disgrace. Potentially a game changer. Zimbabwe should complain to ICC.

Rise of WI making it easy for them but you should never under estimate the team efforts of dedications of the Zimb players..I wish we had a tri-series type of things. Lately not that many tri-series are happening with two or three different countries.

Zimbabwe put up a decent fight but unfortunately it just wasn't enough. Sad to see that in ODIs, they haven't risen the way we have. Their batting is more predictable than us in that they'll not put up the biggest totals but at the same time, they won't put up really small totals. That's the problem though, their batting lineup isn't as dangerous as ours which is why they'll have a tough time rising to the level of the other G8 teams. Plus their pacers are pretty poor. They desperately need to play more. They should schedule more matches against the associates.

Apart from the first match, which was their first in 11 months, ZIM didn't do too badly. It was a nearly full strength Windies team in their own backyard. ZIM were without Ray Price who should be back for the Tests. We will have to be on top of our game to beat them in a couple months.

Chigumbura did really well in BD and Taylor on occasion too. It'll be a close fight as Al_f says.

Hopeless zimbos! Seriously if we can't banglawash them in both test and odi, we should stop playing cricket.

Just look at them now, can't even compete in T20, nor ODI and am sure gonna get trash in test too.

Taylor has been a super flop in this series and whole Zimbabwe struggling to score. we better make some plan to get Taylor out early and Chigumbura. We cannot afford to lose against them!!!!

That's harsh on Zimbabwe. They haven't played international cricket in 11 months whereas the WI have been playing nonstop. Do you really expect them to beat the WI in their home? Besides the 1st ODI, they put a good fight against them. We'd have trouble against them as well.

And we lost both the Test and ODIS series last time we played them and those were no flukes. Their pacers are better than ours and their batting lineup isn't that much worse than ours. We'll have to play really well to beat them.

Zimbabwe has some talented players but they are highly inconsistent(reminds you of another international team ;) ;)) simply due to the fact that they do not get exposed to enough international cricket other than the odd series against Bangladesh. Some of the players that could have a major impact against Bangladesh in the upcoming series:

1. Hamilton Masakadza ( quite an obvious choice)
2. Brendan Taylor( another obvious choice)
3. Elton Chigumbura(yet another obvious choice)
4. Kyle Jarvis(decent fast bowler)
5. Tinotenda Mutumbotzi(newcomer bowls decent legspin)
6. Sean Ervine(has had a successful BPL campaign, which should boost his confidence)

I feel that these players pose a threat to defeat Bangladesh, other than that, the other players are far too inconsistent. Ray Price too is also a decent bowler and pose a threat if he is selected and on song.

Expectation from series: win everything, every format except that one odd loss(be it ODI, T20 or even Tests).

Hope people are watching this Test match. Best has bowled tremendouesly. Bowled fast, full and bowled great outswing. Both he and Roach have bowled with great control and discipline. There's a reason why Best and Edwards gave so much trouble to us compared to the likes of Eranga and Kulasekera.

Zimbabwean batsmen have also batted solidly. They've showed good temperament and application against a hostile pace attack. We have our work cut out against them. We can't afford to be complacent against them just because we're performing well against the Lankans.

Nadim
March 12, 2013, 01:44 PM
^ Not for long. They played well against some gd bowling. also played bad equally against some poor bowling. Story of Zim and Bangladesh cricket :(

Nadim

LOL 7th ball over, and believe it or not Jarvis gets Roach on the 7th ball :lol:

6.7
Jarvis to Roach, OUT, that's the seventh ball of the over by the looks of it, and it's struck Roach plumb in front. A full delivery angling into the right-hander from over the wicket and shaping away late. Roach played back and was hit low on the back pad. That's flattening middle. Gone.
KAJ Roach lbw b Jarvis 0 (1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00
A timely boost for Zimbabwe. Kemar Roach has come out as a night watchman.
6.6
Jarvis to Powell, OUT, that looks adjacent and the umpire thinks so too! Powell has reviewed the lbw decision. Jarvis pitched on middle stump from over the wicket and swung the ball back into the left-hander. Powell was caught on the crease and played across the line. He was hit flush on the pad and that would have gone on to hit leg stump full on. That's a review gone for West Indies and Powell has to go.
KOA Powell lbw b Jarvis 5 (27b 1x4 0x6) SR: 18.51

Roach was 1 of the wickets to fall. So basically they're 1 down

It's their 1st time playing a Test match in over a year. Not easy to bat on a pitch where it assists the pacers and face the likes of Best and Roach. I thought they did average job. Bottom line is that they need to be playing more matches. No excuses for them to be kept out of tours.

They still suck against spin though. Samuels picked up 4 wickets. Imagine them against the likes of Shakib and Sohag? So that's good for us but it'll still be tough to beat them.

Sammy killing them.

66.5
Masakadza to Ramdin, 1 run, was that dropped too?, pitched up and he drives it straight back to the bowler, Masakadza put out his right hand and got a touch to it but couldn't hold on, was a sharp chance but he couldn't snap that one
66.4
Masakadza to Sammy, 1 run, dropped, Zimbabwe are faltering, pitched up outside off and Sammy square-drove it uppishly, more a slice, Ray Price is positioned perfectly at deep point, had to move a few paces to his right but he couldn't clasp it as he tried to take it over his head, another miss
66.3
Masakadza to Sammy, no run, missed run-out, Waller fails to hit the stumps direct at the non-striker's end, pushed it towards cover and Ramdin at the non-striker's end was miles out of his ground after taking a start

3 missed chances in 3 consecutive delivery :(

Tiger444
March 13, 2013, 03:54 PM
As they say, bad teams find a way to lose. Zimbabwe had them in a tough spot but let the Windies get away and build a sizeable lead. They're showing good fight but not they're taking their chances in order to give the Windies nerves.

Their pacers are better than ours. They bowl with better control and discipline. Plus Ray Price is a good bowler as well. The key will be our spinners since Zimbabwe still seems clueless against spin

This is why Shillingford and Bishoo>Narine. Mystery spinners should be playing only T20Is and ODIs. While genuine wicket taking bowlers like Shil and Bishoo need to be in Tests

To be honest, Narine looked like crap in the Test series against us. Shillingford on the other hand was looking very good. Got bounce, turn, and was accurate. Looked better than our Gazi even.

Another innings loss on the card for Zim. Pathetic batting. But their bowling is gd. We have to bat well. And we must play 5+ spinners, when you see Samuel getting wickets left tight and centre :lol:

One series is not enough to judge my friend. Shillingford avg was 47 prior to this series. Assuming he played all his test before this series against top teams. That's nothing amazing. Picking up 5er against Zim doesn't prove anything. Am sure Narine would have done the same.

They can't even play Samuel...
