Default Australia beat Zimbabwe and get the bonus point

I'd post this on international but cos Zimbabwe are playing Bangladesh soon.

Australia 8/225 (Symonds 42, Clarke 40, Ervine 3/53)

Zimbabwe 126 (Streak 46, Taibu 29, Williams 5/22)

Yeah, I've watched the whole match for the very same reason.

Tell you what, at one channel Zimbabwe was bowling and fielding superbly against Australia whereas on another channel Bangladesh Cricket Development Foundation was bowling and fielding pretty poorly against the South African Under 19 team.

Our national players in the camp should better improve their basic skills or else!

Zimbabwe has a deep batting line up. That's what worries me, even if we manage to get the top half off under 100, they have enough bats to reach 220-250 after a collapse. With our bowling, it's not going to be hard for the likes of Streak or Taibu or Blignaut to score 80-100 runs in the last 10 overs.

ON the other hand, they held the Aussies down to 225 for 8. We don't have half the talent in our batting team. *sigh*


===========
All negatives aside, all depends on game day. We either play bad and lose or they play worse and give us our much waited one day win.

yeah. Zimbabwe put up a good total against India today 208 (Streak 59, Ervine 48, Carlisle 36)

India is giving a fine belting of their bowlers though 1/158 in the 28th over.

Default Also think Zimb\'s fielding is much better than ours..

32.5 Hondo to Ganguly, one run, pushed wide of the cover fielder, quick
single taken, throw hits the striker's end stumps and the third
umpire is called for, Green light flashes, Laxman is well in

Do you realise how difficult it is to cleanly grasp a ball that Gilchrist has hit? No surprise really
