Zimbabwean Stories

10 06 2010

As a follow up to our article yesterday, we were going to write something about the state of cricket as a whole in Zimbabwe, yet we have been beaten to it by Cricinfo and their correspondent Liam Brickhill. For a really excellent piece on the situation over there please click here.


As you will probably have heard by now, Zimbabwe failed in their pursuit of the tri series title, surrendering rather tamely to Sri Lanka in the end. Zimbabwe had been at their best batting second all tournament, chasing down targets with and efficiency and easy that embarrassed their opponents. Asked to make the running yesterday they failed to set a stiff enough target and a Dilshan inspired Sri Lanka chased 200 down with ease.

Still, as the Cricinfo states, they should be pleased with their progress; after all winning 3 out of 5 matches is not bad against the might of India and Sri Lanka. Lets just hope they can kick on now and build from these solid looking foundations.
