Piedt is cursed now sadly.
They're always going to be prone to the old middle order collapse with such a mercurial line-up, Zimbabwe.
I know pretty much nothing about this bowling line-up. No Jarvis is of course a disappointment. What's happened to Waller? Just not selected?

Wish I could be watching this - how filthy is Piedt's doosra?
Love Brendan Taylor scoring runs. He was in a horror run of form a few months back wasn't he?
Good first day. Pity the umpire (Gaffaney every time was it? Not a great debut) followed the tried and true "if it's marginal, give it to the stronger team" philosophy, otherwise the Zimbos would be threatening a decent total. Without wickets falling, some incorrectly, at the other end, Taylor would probably still be there.

Nicked a stat off reddit: Steyn has more wickets than Malcolm Marshall despite bowling 2000 fewer deliveries.
No one ever talks about 'the weak, silent type'. When's their moment?
Reddit: home of meaningless stats?
Do they do drafts on there?
That's hardly a meaningless stat when you consider Marshall was considered one of the greatest strike bowlers of all time.. Consider Anderson and Broad are thought of as two of England's better bowlers over time, now realise they have averages about 10 runs higher than Steyn. The guy is a freak, on the level of McGrath, Akram and Younis.
