    Zimbabwe are a disgrace.

    The emerging Australian team beat them 3-0 in a series earlier in the year and that was on at the same time as the Top End Series. I think George Bailey scored 135 off 65 balls or something equally ridiculous.

    Zimbabwe cricket- Huge work in progress. They'll come right eventually, once they get some decent people at the top.

    Zimbabwe were PATHETIC....and they won't improve until there's regime change there. David Houghton said on Sky they were'nt good enough...wow, Dave thanks for stating the obvious...but how could they be anything else? Think of who could play for them but don't...Goodwin,Streak,the Flowers,Ervine,Price,Benkenstein(he was born there)Taibu and Olonga with Houghton as coach...with those players they'd at least be competitive. PS - if their own board don't think they are good enough for Test cricket why are they playing ODIs and when(or even if) will they play Test cricket again? Oh and about Gayle...I think he was just bored and wanted to finish the "match" off quick.

    Thanks for reminding me the golden era of Zim cricket, they were my favourite team to watch in the 99 WC.

    A bit harsh, sure they really sucked against the West Indies - But that happens to every team on a given day, particularly if it is a young, unexperienced side playing against world class opposition. They have been having some credible results lately - Scoring 250+ against SA and beating Bangladesh in the ODI series in particular.

    I know they are possibly the weakest team on the International Circuit - But the way that their players commit themselves to a near-hopeless cause and occassionally show some international class cricket is no disgrace at all.

    Well said Loots, everybody knows they are weak but if they can continue taking these small steps then one day they will be competitive again. But the infrastructure of Zimbabwe cricket is ridiculous.

    Cricinfo has Jenny Thompson. They win.

    I was very disappointed by the performance of our guys in the first match, but hopefully they can do better in this one. I don't think that we will win, but maybe put up more of a fight, get 200+ with the bat.

    The problem is that whilst these young batsmen have talent (a lot of it in Taylor, Masakadza and Sibanda's cases) they have not had access to a strong first-class system where they can develop their techniques, and in the logan cup it's very easy to score runs- Vusi is probably finding it harder in Aussie Grade right now than he ever has done before. They'll get there. Eventually.

    Makes a habit of getting tons against the poor teams of ODI cricket (excluding New Zealand) but still a pretty impressive record the kid has. His only twenty one and he has already hit six centuries.
