Zimbabwe won the toss and have elected to bat first. Crucial game for both sides :odoyo

Zimbabwe wins the toss and Chigumbura elects to bat on a nice dry wicket .
Sohail Tanveer was about to bash Razzaq but then stopped by saying yeah he needs to improve a little bit but he is doing fine with the ball.hehe
Come on Zimbabwe :)

If Zim can get a score of 220-250, their spinners could cause havoc to the NZ team
Mills will be playing today ,it seems kiwis are not taking this game lightly.
If Zim can get a good start and can see off the new ball then they will post a good total here.The pitch is dead flat road.
both of the matches should decide 4th quarter-finalists from each group
I have a feeling that this is going to be a cracking match!!!

Taibu dropped!!! Vettori :)))
This could prove to be costly - Taibu will make them pay heavily...NOT :odoyo
Zimbabwe need to get to 200 somehow to have a chance here. That looks a long long away currently.
he is long way down,around 3 meter down so should be not out
Chakabva goes ,good catch by R Taylor

5 down already
Spinners really doing the damage in this WC, I hope this brings a return to the glory days of spin.

blazing cover drive from Taylor! always liked this guy's batting!
Slogging is the way to go. Defending and playing cautiously obviously hasn't worked.
151/8 after 43 overs

This partnership can be crucial
NZ showing it how its done. Attack, attack, attack.

New Zealand the underdogs in the world cup anyone?
Kiwis are boosting their run rate by thrashing the minnows!
that collapse in the space of 3 overs destroyed what could have been an interesting match :(

Congrats New Zealand.

Commiserations Zimbabwe.
