Default Zimbabwe bigger threat than NZ

Zimbabwe's batting line up is much stronger that NZ at the moment. Brendan Taylor is pure class plus plus Masakadza is a beast. They bat right to #9. They have been smashing SA who have a much superior bowling attack than BD. Their weakness is their bowling. But then again BD's batting is still unreliable. In this series SN, Imrul and Shakib covered up an otherwise dismal batting performance.

Zimb and SA spinners do not have the 'beguiling guile' that our spinners do.
Our spinners will create a mesmerizing web and tame the Zimb batsmen.
Tamim's return will be a bonus, atleast Rock will be dropped.
Let them on in.

We will see that in time. I understand why you are a bit scared. India's Zimbabwe mission wasn't a good experience.

Don't worry, we have weapons in our hand to tackle Zimbabwe.

They are playing on pretty flat tracks down in SA with nothing in it for the pacers so hard to make a comparison really..

However one could say the Zimbo boys are better players of spin than NZ so we could expect a better fight from there batters in the upcoming series

While I acknowledge that Zimbabwe have improved, let's not bury our heads in the sands. We have been destroying Zimbabwe while NZ have been destroying us on our turf. One bad series from the NZ can not and does not mean they are now weaker than Zim. India WILL be surprized by the black caps, you can count on that. And I wouldn't read too much in ZIM's current performance. Sure they have improved, but SA pace attack is lead by Tsotsobe, for god's sake. The last time they toured SA, ZIM ran SA pretty close too, then we owned them 4-1 in their own backyard.

So, yeah, let's not press the panic button just yet.

The thing is, batting is their strength but bowling is ours. And in this case they suck against our bowling. Our batting is more talented than Zimbabwe's but we are a bit more inconsistent which won't be much of a problem since Zimbabwe's bowling isn't too special.

But as far as Zim is concerned,ya their batting might be not too bad than NZ(in this series)
but as we r comparing looking at Zim playing SA,I will say that SA pitches r usually high scoring & SA don' hv a strong spin attack as we hv .
Zim will always suffer agnst our SPin attack & the new threat Rubel/Shafi will be engh aswell.

Have some faith. We gonna have minnow basher SN.. TI will be back... Rakibul will be replaced. I think we look pretty darn strong team. Don't forget the fact that we have much superior spin attack compare to SA which zim have struggled against time after time.

Other than Taylor there isn't much to challenge our bowling.
Other than Price and Utseya there isn't much.

There pacers would be taken good care by two good gentlemen TI & SN.

Ditto

Also, keep in mind that weather in December won't be as challenging for a visiting team as it was last couple of weeks.

Zims will show more fight than NZ. They are way better player of spin than these minnow Kiwi cross bat batsmen. They have couple of class bat and couple of good big hitter. They are more aware of our strength and weaknesses. 220s won't cut it against them. We have to cross 250. We might need to think something out side of "spin-sla-spin-sla" attack plan. We will have to go seam game plan, and use Shafiul and Rubel's form. Plus they don't have any good fast bowler.

They have good finishers. They will use their batting PP and slog over better, and 40-50 runs, while we will get bowled out in batting pp, slog over.



But Shakib has the right attitude, we shouldn't worry too much:

"I still think our top-order batting was not up to the mark as we lost wickets at the wrong times. We want atleast one of the top four batsmen to get to a good score and try to hold the innings together. Apart from the second game where we chased that did not happen in this series...We also did not execute the Powerplays very well and often we found ourselves with too many wickets down when the last Powerplay arrived. Ideally you should have five or six wickets in hand when the final Powerplay starts."

And good to see his awareness of his opponent:

"We should definitely continue working hard and prepare for the next series against Zimbabwe in December," he said. "They are a much improved side and although we have had a stranglehold over them in the last few years the matches often have been quite competitive. They are also playing pretty well in South Africa although the results haven't gone their way."

LOL

We could drop valuable points if we lose to them as well as momentum going in to the world cup. Suddenly my expectations have lifted to semi-finals and aspirations as world champions.
