    Hmmm, same 'agreement' on different website (on Cricinfo as well) with vastly different conclusions reached by the different journalists.

    i do agree

    see you have made good points but the truth is a lot of people in zanu pf actually dont like bob and are willing to give the white farmers their land once he is out of power and the only thing which suprise me is these so called war vets bloody hell they all look young to be war vetrans they dont know that they have messed up their future firghting mugabe's war guess my mother was right never bite the hands that feed you and zimbabwe has done that...

    Ebrahim said on cricinfo max ebrahim is his uncle,max is disputing it is his nephew,not diaon ebrahim.
    The negotiations are not finished streak is yet to get agreement from the players,its just the zcu spreading its propaganda.
    Interesting zimbabwe dropped sibanda and bought in mpawira,he is a bowler which means zimbabwe are 1 batsmen down,after a score of 35 this certainly makes no sense.
    The batting is
    matsikenyeri
    taylor
    ebrahim
    taibu
    chigumbra
    maraguede
    nkala a bowler at 7.

    That doesnt shock me that they dropped a batsman as Nkala and Utseya are considered ARs in the Logan Cup, and have made decent scores in the first two ODIs.

    Panyangara opens the batting in Logan Cup as well.

    But what does shock me is WHO they dropped. Sibanda was way up the pecking order above Chigumbura, Maregwede and even Matsikenyeri at times. And he was DEFINATELY above Taylor.....

    Gotta hand it to the Zimbabwe bowlers, they didn't do TOO badly out there. I thought Sri Lanka would show great domination. We'll see how well the Zimmy batsmen do, though... heh. But I do think that some of their bowlers aren't too shabby.

    Icon14 Kudos to Zimbos

    got to give credit to zimbabwe for a good bowling display restricting sri lanka to 223/9 when many people expected a 300+ score. this shows that zimbabwe does have some good players.

    however, its their batting which needs to be looked after as they are 121/5 after 35 overs now, needing almost 6.6 runs per over. however, they do have good bowlers like hondo, panyangara, etc.

    In all fairness, it's a bowler-friendly pitch and the Sri Lankan side is comprised of:

    Jayantha, Sangakkara, Jayawardene, Arnold, Dilshan, Kandamby, Chandana, Maharoof, Herath, Fernando and Kulasekara - which is a line up that would be well beaten by any of the other top teams nine times out of ten.

    I dread to think what would happen on a flat track against a full Aussie XI

    Sri Lanka win by 72 runs.

    Tinashe Panyangara's ODI batting career record currently stands thus:

    0, 0, 0.

    Australia will play a nearly full strength XI for all games as well... 1 or 2 players rested maybe but that wont make too much difference. every world record is well under threat in the series

    Except for Laker's, I would guess. Unless someone is bowling rubbish from the other end.
