Default Zimbabwe v Kenya: Feb 2006

So, the first ball of the series will be bowled tonight. The Kenyans are the favorites here, no question about it, and they might just pull it 5-0.

It’s hard not to dislike the Zimbabwean for all that have happened. But, then again, they are a test playing nation, and it’s even harder for me to let them go like this.

I wish the Zimbabwean best of luck. I just wish they compete well although I don’t see that happening.

I'm barracking for Zimbabwe, but Kenya will win easily.

Zimbabwe have it all to lose

Rarely can a one-day international series have attracted such little attention and so little interest as the one between Zimbabwe and Kenya starting at Bulawayo tomorrow. For the first time in many years, not even the television cameras will be in evidence, as the local media cannot raise enthusiasm.

In fairness, the shambolic nature of the build-up has much to do with that. That the series was going ahead was only confirmed last weekend after Zimbabwe had tried to cut down the five matches to three. It took the intervention of the ICC for Zimbabwe's board to back down.

The absolute anonymity of the Zimbabwe side will further dampen the appeal of the matches. The team has been ripped part by five months of infighting, and although the player strike is now over, Cricinfo has learned that the appointment of Terry Duffin as captain has reopened wounds. Duffin, who has never played an ODI, was picked ahead of more experienced players, and sources inside the camp speak of a number of black players being extremely unhappy.

Zimbabwe 126/1 after 25 overs, so it looks like they could reach the target.

Quite comfortably too. Debutant captain, Terrence (or Terry?) Duffin going well on 51*.

There's no live audio of this game is there?

Brandon Taylor and Hamilton Masakadza were part of the Zimbabwe team that came to Bangladesh. So, they're fairly bit experienced.

Zimbabwe Cricket can't televise it, I suspect because they are short of money..

Had it been against any full member country they would have had to however. There is a rule that states all ODI's must be televised so that the 3rd umpire can see a replay. BUT, if the ODI involves an affiliate (Kenya, Canada etc) then it does not need to be televised.

From what I am aware, there is no audio either

Just the slow scorecards that BBC are posting on the internet (hasn't been updated in hours..)

Now its 174 in 33 overs. Tikolo hit that 98 out off only 50 odd balls.

Lets see how far Kenya's innings goes and whether Zimbabwe can manage to go close or not.

258 for 5 (47.0 overs)

I think 270+ will be hard for Zimbabwe, but they do have a few big hitters in the middle order.

Zimbabwe and Kenya seems to be equal strength countries in cricket.

No, with the current team Kenya is far superior. Read how they were treated by the Zim board. Pretty cunning:

"They only arrived in the country yesterday morning after a journey which took 13 hours, and immediately traveled up to Bulawayo where their one net session was washed out." Source - Cricinfo

The series will end up 4-1 drubbing by the Kenyans, if not then 3-2.
