    Nope, they screwed themselves by being bowled out for 84. Were always losing the game after a dire performance like that.

    Yeah mate they were hot favorites, 85 is a tough ask in this format especially against the might of Zimbabwe.

    As I said in my last post, against seam he like any other batsman in the world struggles, against swing however I think he is pretty decent. He has shown this through his test record and multiple test innings against the swinging ball.

    Almost all of those innings batting at number 3 were right at the start of his career, batting in a position he didn't even bat in for his province. His relative lack of success could be put down to many things.

    I'm willing to hear out your argument that Taylor is only useful in ODI's down the order and T20's (though, how exactly do you argue against his test record?), but i'm still waiting for some sort of evidence or something you have seen consistently to suggest this is the case.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Agreed Nathan McCullum is one helluva fc spinner, a T20 world cup on slow pitches proves it once and for all.
