The Zimbabwe that showed up in the 3rd ODI, under pressure was miles better than the WI side. But WI was better than the Zimbabwe XI that showed up in the first 2 ODIS.

let's face it:

The west Indian XI was called at the last minute,underprepared, random XI with some merit behind them. not really interrnational standard but not bad for a random XI

This Zimbabwean XI was prepared, skilled players who has defeated us before earlier this year,Like Bangladesh a capable XI who also matches their Rival, Bangladesh, in the inconsistent department.

credit to Bangladesh for beating both teams convincingly but by International standard there is NO EXCUSE losing to either teams in any format of the game

^^^ This Zimbabwe team is bit stronger on batting department than the one which toured Bangladesh earlier this season. They are batting is also stronger than WI Z team. (I Called it "Z team" so all the WI fan is happy).

Bowling: Its is WI Z team who will still give Bangladesh hard time even in Bulawayo surface. Zimbabwe needs to sort their bowling out quick. If Zimfan is reading this post. Is there anyone they can bring from exodus that could help that department. One of the name comes on my mind is bowler called Anthony Ireland is there anyone else.

Till now "Well Played". But we can actually judge our standard on next series/tournament against a full Test team. Otherwise it will not be wise, if we start to think by beating present WI team & Zimbabwe that we have got highest standard. Long way to go.
