You better pray that there is a bit of some juice tomorrow morning and an early wicket falls otherwise it's going to be another tough day for your boys. I wonder how you guys are holding up after such a terrible performance by the Tigers?

don't worry, once we start batting we're going to make your 3.0 run rate look like the ballet.
on a more serious note: you guys played very well, full accolades from me. I did not expect the batsman to play that well no matter how flat the pitch might be. Yes, the pacers bowled a bit foolishly - I wouldn't say wayward, because it became evident that their plan devolved into bowling ODI wides outside of off stump - but I think the ZIM batters did very well with the only exception being two poor shots which gave us 2 wickets and the wicket seems to be a batter's paradise. Its good to know that we will be pushed and tested in these encounters.
