Commentary

So that's it here. If you have missed the action, or inaction as it was in the second innings, Liam Brickhill has it all in the Bulletin here. There's another game going on today, you can find all about it here. Cheers all

Presentation
Ashish Bagai says he was happy to field first and use the early-morning conditions, "We started well, but we went on to bowl both sides of the wicket. They kept getting wickets every over." He thinks 325 looked on when Taibu and Ervine were going, but his side did okay to keep them down. "We got into the shell a little bit. Disappointing," he says of the side's batting effort. "Not good enough."

Tatenta Taibu is MOM. He says: "It is always a responsibility to score runs. I told Craig we should get into the zone, but yes it was my responsibility. If you get into the zone as a batsman, it is easy to score. We were lucky we kept getting boundaries in the middle overs. Because we kept getting boundaries and singles, we thought we could get 290. I am a big fan of Price and Utseya, they are very accurate, and it is a joy keeping wicket to them."

Elton Chigumbura: "Very happy, we are still in the running for the next stage. The big game is against New Zealand. Craig and Tatenda put us back into the game, they applied themselves really well. Our bowling was fantastic. Next game is very important, that is the game where we have to put in our best performance. Against New Zealand."

Finally it's over. This was a no-contest from the time Taibu and Ervine put on in one partnership more than what Canada could get. Zimbabwe were solid, Canada hopeless. We will have captains' thoughts from the presentation in shortly

42.1
W
Cremer to Balaji Rao, OUT, bowled'im! Leggie to leggie! Through the gate. Beauty. Pitches outside off, draws the left-hand batsman into a forward defensive, then turns it between the bat and pad and takes top of off. All over at Jamtha

END OF OVER:
42 | 2 Runs 1 Wkt | CAN: 123/9

Lamb to Balaji Rao, 1 run, short, into the pads, pulled away for one
41.5
0
Lamb to Balaji Rao, no run, short and wide, hit powerfully, but straight to extra cover
41.4
0
Lamb to Balaji Rao, no run, another big leg-before appeal, pitches middle, but perhaps didn't straighten enough
41.3
0
Lamb to Balaji Rao, no run, full and fast, wide down the leg side
41.2
0
Lamb to Balaji Rao, no run, big appeal for lbw, straighter delivery from round the stumps, close call too, no idea why they didn't go for the review there

Russell: "Why go for the kill? Zimbabwe are in a dominant position with 10 overs to go. What a good opportunity to give the part-timers some valuable world-cup experience that might help in closer games?" Then we have two teams happy to play out 50 overs with nothing happening out there. Not very exciting, is it? Balaji Rao is the new batsman meanwhile
