    A pretty good bet. Bowled by Vaas for 0. 2/2

    Well all the pressure is on Taibu now (like it wasn't already)...otherwise this Zimbabwe U19 side is going to be seriously smashed.

    Question: Is Geoff Marsh still coaching Zimbabwe?

    Yes, he is I think. He got 'sacked' from the selection panel though.

    This Zimbabwe team has 222 odi matches between them. Taibu and Ebrahim account for more than half of them. Interestingly, Maregwede is down as the 'keeper for Zimbabwe, which suggests to me that Taibu will be having a bowl.

    Hondo is due to bat at 6...

    Currently 33-2 - the debutant Kulasekara has just been blasted for 3 successive fours by Taibu.

    He played a couple of matches against Australia I think. Vaas with 8 runs off 7 overs.

    You're right. It's tests he hasn't played yet.

    Ebrahim out, Chigumbura in. 3/64, Taibu on 28, Chigumbura 13, they may yet manage to get a decent score.

    Perhaps not, Chigumbura out now for 13. Zoysa gets his 3rd, 4/66.

    End of Maregwede though. c Dilshan b Chandana for 37 off 44, including a 6 off one M. Muralitharan. 200 remains a possibility, though I imagine most people will be surprised that Zimbabwe have managed at least 150.

    Taibu's highest ODI score - 76* (133)

    Yup.

    I've just been reading some of the garbage which has been written about this series, how a certain county's under-19's would do better.

    Whatever the politics behind the selections, and I maintain that the situation is indefensible, these are still first-class cricketers with pride, not the bunch of village idiots some would have us believe.

    Who knows? They might even be able to give England a game, going by recent history. Sri Lanka are not the world's best by any means - yet they destroyed England less than a year after being stitched up by Kenya.

    Remarkable, Zimbabwe up to 200 now. Taibu on strike on 94*, 4 balls to go, certainly deserves a century.

    Didn't happen unfortunately, 96* out of 6/211 in the end, great knock in any case. A handy innings from Nkala too - 33* off 22, including two sixes off Murali in the last over. Zimbabwe certainly have something to defend, whether they have the bowlers to defend it is another matter. Still, they have exceeded expectations and should be suitably proud, regardless of what happens off-field.
