    Awesome from Zimbabwe . Why didn't India score more? 285/5 just smacks of "we could score more, but we're better than you and therefore don't need to". Yusuf Pathan could have utterly demolished this attack with its lack of real pace/bounce. Why did he only face five deliveries?

    Seems rather conservative to me, somewhat overdoing the rebuilding.

    India have rested a lot of bowlers for the series. Dinda did well in the first IPL, continued to do well and used the elevation he received in domestic OD cricket to elevate himself to ODI cricket.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Well done Zimbabwe.

    They are almost returning to a best possible XI, amazing considering the strife the country finds itself in. They have the balance right now, some older experienced hands, and a mix of very good youth (Cremer has improved out of site since I first seen him bowl). Another decent pace bowler will be a great help, cannot rely on a 4 spinner combo forever.

    Quality. Real quality. That was a fine performance and again it shows the massive improvement in the attitude and ability of the side under the new conditions in Zim cricket.

    Well done to Zimbabwe on a great performance. On the aspect of resting the senior players, I'm with Jono on this one. You have to develop a solid lineup of reserve players who need international experience under their belt.

    Experience counts for a lot and even though they lost this match it'll go a long way in teaching the younger players on what they did well and what they didn't do so well. You always tend to learn more from a loss than you do from a win.

    Haha, this is brilliant. Good on the Zimbobs (though tbh I've got dramas about their being allowed to play with that bloke still in charge).

    Players should rest during domestic competitions, not international ones, IMO.

    yes it is important but for that you can have 'A' tours international cricket should not be treated as a testing ground until or unless its a dead rubber or something.

    I take it you didn't see the comment I made after that sentence, noting that in an ideal world, players would have missed the IPL or the World T20 before an ODI tri series.

    I did. But they didn't do that, and I was just saying I think that's wrong.

    There is no way in hell that this tri-ODI series is more important than the World T20. 3 years ago I'd have shot myself for saying that, but its true.

    Ahh, you know it is business as usual when India and Sri Lanka prepare to duel in limited overs cricket.
