Match Notes

  • England complete a comfortable innings victory

    James Anderson and Steve Harmison picked up four wickets apiece, as England completed their second consecutive innings victory over Zimbabwe shortly before 4.45pm on the third day of the second npower Test at Chester-le-Street

  • Time for technology

    Congratulations to Riverside for its maiden Test match

  • Time for a bit of altruism

    And so ends one of the more pointless Test series of recent times

  • Johnson takes six as Zimbabwe face heavy defeat

    Dream start: Richard Johnson celebrates his first wicket with his third ball ..

  • Against the odds

    England v Zimbabwe, 2nd Test, Riverside, Day 2 "We feel like we're playing 13 men out there." Comments to this effect have come from various Zimbabwean players at various times over the years, and no doubt are being made with more fury than ever
