Zimbabwe now have a pretty substantial batting order that has enough big-hitting in it to post big scores against any opposition if the wicket is flat enough. There's some real talent in the line-up.

Unfortunately they'll continue to have a pop-gun bowling attack for the forseeable future.

Nevertheless, I'll be watching this Zimbabwe team with a lot more interest than I had previously. There's players in this team who've barely seen any international cricket for years and it's hard to gauge what their actual potential is until we see a bit more of them. Once their previously absent white players get back into the swing of international cricket, and the complete revamp they've begun in their first class game starts bringing results, we might be looking back on this series as a bit of an aberration.
