I'm nailing my colours to the mast and going for a Zimbabwe win.

Sounds like Zimbabwe have been robbed by biased/incompetent umpiring. No one can believe Dickwella wasn't given out stumped.

This is boiling up nicely. Looks like SL might pull off a remarkable run chase at the last.

SL closing in now. Looks a good match. Are Zimbabwe back. Or are SL so bad?

It doesn't really matter, does it, Arthur? Either way, it proves our theory that there's a de facto two-tier system, and Sri Lanka are down there in Tier Two with Zimbabwe, West Indies, Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Ireland.

Yeah it doesn't matter if anything it is a good sign Zimbabwe are progressing might make it easier for them to keep the few talents they do have.
Imagine if Jarvis, balance and Tom curran played for them even Sam curran,
Brendan Taylor as well.
