We have to ask ourselves how far we are prepared to play to win and how far to avoid being humiliated. I think my team has a good chance of avoiding humiliation, but could the lack of bowling options win a game? That said, I believe those 4 bowlers have a better chance of being incisive and causing trouble than a five-man attack featuring other options.
The other question is who keeps wicket. There are a lot of guys on the fringe of the side like Mutizwa or Chakabva who can take the gloves: I think one of the two would be the best option, and bat them at 7. Taylor shouldn't have to keep in tests. But if he does they can play an extra allrounder/batsman... and the problem continues....
Somebody has to...
