    I honestly think Zimbabwe will win this. NZ start as favourites obviously, but we aren't good against spin and the batsmen are in awful form. Doesn't help we're randomly dropping our best bowler either, and if Mills is fit to play and doesn't this match I'll be spitting. We're in a **** patch, and Zimbabwe have a golden opportunity to pounce.

    Go Zim! I still remember occasionally bowling to Brendan Taylor on saturday mornings at the Harare Sports club.

    My prediction:

    Zim 186 ao
    Nzl 187/6 (48 overs)

    Have a feeling one of the top 3 will play a blinder of an innings before going back to **** for the rest of the tournament.

    Unfortunately I can see NZ winning and winning well. Bangladesh whitewash aside, they are up there with Sri Lanka as being the most ruthless of minnow bashes.

    Elton needs a few runs, no longer trusts his own bowling and he isn't good enough to bat top six. From what I've read Price will be watched out and NZ will target everyone else.

    This game could very well decide the fourth place qualifier from this group.

    On paper NZ should win but, on form, it could be a very close game.

    I hope NZ win, if only to lift their confidence.

    Even though NZ have been dire of late, the still should win this one.

    NZ's problem are all mental, and when they playing minnows there is no pressure.

    Top floor, bottom buzzer
    I seriously doubt Zimbabwe have the batting to pile on the runs here. It'd take a hefty collapse from the Kiwis to lose. Obviously that's not out of the question.

    This game should be decided in the first 10 overs of our innings, if we're 3 down we'll probably choke (unless we bowl first and get them for under 150).

    No faith in our batting order after an early falter.

    Dan will score a century if he has too

    Wouldn't surprise me tho If Zim win with their spin

    I'm sort of hoping we lose tbh with an epic batting collapse. Our batsmen need a big boot in the backside when it comes to ODIs.

    I can't believe I trust the test batting more than the ODI batting.

    Definitely weighing up the $5 for the Zimbos at the TAB.
