New Zealand tour of Zimbabwe, Only Test: Zimbabwe v New Zealand at Bulawayo, Nov 1-5, 2011
1,2,3,4,5 November 2011 (5-day match)
  • Overs 1-50
  • Overs 51-100
  • Overs 101-150
100.1

Jarvis to Watling, FOUR, nice straight drive. Half-volley just outside off, Watling comes forward to drive it between Jarvis and mid-on

100.2

Jarvis to Watling, no run, length, on the pads, flicked away nicely but Taibu makes a diving save at midwicket

100.3

Jarvis to Watling, 1 run, nudged away off the hip for a single

100.4

Jarvis to Brownlie, FOUR, short and wide, cut away in front of square, which suggests the slowness of the wicket. Placed well, though, to the left of cover

100.5

Jarvis to Brownlie, 1 run, too full this time, driven down the ground, to the right of the diving mid-off. Price from mid-on gives chase and keeps them down to one

100.6

Jarvis to Watling, no run, length, on the pads, flicked to midwicket

End of a tired over from Jarvis, and with that I think his first spell today

End of over 101 (10 runs) New Zealand 304/4

    • BJ Watling 31 (63b 5x4)
    • DG Brownlie 13 (25b 1x4)

    • N Ncube 21-4-58-1
101.1

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, nips back in off a length outside off, defended solidly off the back foot

101.2

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, short of a length, outside off, punched off the back foot

101.3

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, more inward movement from a length, Brownlie is watchful and right behind it

101.4

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, short and wide, cut away, but straight to point

101.5

Ncube to Brownlie, FOUR, too short again, into the body, rib-high, pulled away square, in the air but to the left of long leg

101.6

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, short of a length, straightens outside off, defended back

End of over 102 (4 runs) New Zealand 308/4

    • BJ Watling 31 (63b 5x4)
    • N Ncube 22-4-62-1
    • KM Jarvis 24-6-74-1

As expected, a change in bowling. Here's Mpofu

102.1

Mpofu to Watling, no run, short of a length, he cuts it away but can't beat gully

102.2

Mpofu to Watling, no run, full now, slight shape in towards the off stump, defended back off the front foot

102.3

Mpofu to Watling, 3 runs, half-volley on the pads, nicely flick-driven between mid-off and midwicket. Price at mid-on gives another spirited chase, and puts in a dive near the rope, flinging himself at the ball. Does well to save one run

102.4

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball outside off, defended to cover

102.5

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball outside off, defended to cover

"Yup. Checked it on Statsguru like a good boy!! Marvan made his debut in November 1990 (having just turned 20). Ravi Shastri was opening the Indian batting, alternating between "sensible batting" and hitting the ball "like a tracer bullet" (88 off 224 with 8x4 and 2x6). SL lost by an innings and 8. Kapil and Prabhakar were opening the bowling." So James, more than Kapil overstaying this is a case of Marvan being ancient. I thought he would have debuted around 1994/95. Apologies Kapil paaji

102.6

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, presses forward again to show it the dead-bat

End of over 103 (3 runs) New Zealand 311/4

    • DG Brownlie 17 (34b 2x4)
    • BJ Watling 34 (66b 5x4)
    • CB Mpofu 21-3-71-0
    • N Ncube 22-4-62-1

Double change. Here's Hamilton Masakadza. It's like NZ having a player called Bulawayo Taylor

103.1

Masakadza to Watling, no run, starts off with a length ball outside off, driven to cover

103.2

Masakadza to Watling, no run, slow, full, on the pads, flicked straight to square leg

A very straight mid-on stands between the umpire and the non-striker

103.5

Masakadza to Watling, no run, on the stumps this time, defended back to him

103.6

Masakadza to Watling, no run, well outside off, pushed to extra cover. This is a four-strong cover ring

Time for a drink

End of over 104 (maiden) New Zealand 311/4

    • BJ Watling 34 (72b 5x4)
    • DG Brownlie 17 (34b 2x4)
    • H Masakadza 8-4-13-1
    • CB Mpofu 21-3-71-0

"Dean Brownlie has no Profile Image! Well he was born in Australia so we can let that slide." Morgan starts the noble Kiwi pastime of Aussie bashing. ""It's like NZ having a player called Bulawayo Taylor" I thought that was one of Ross' middle names!" Yes James, he does sound like a Sri Lankan with s many "middle names"

Meanwhile Ray Price walks off the field. Don't know what the discomfort is. Mpofu continues with a slip and short midwicket in place

104.1

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, short of a length, middle and leg, punched to short midwicket

104.2

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball outside off, defended back to the bowler

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball, starts just outside off, shapes towards the stumps, pushed to mid-on

104.5

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, similar delivery, shaping in towards off, but at a gentle pace. Defended without trouble

104.6

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, plays around a straight half-volley, and that thick inside edge saves him from the lbw

End of over 105 (maiden) New Zealand 311/4

    • DG Brownlie 17 (40b 2x4)
    • BJ Watling 34 (72b 5x4)
    • CB Mpofu 22-4-71-0
    • H Masakadza 8-4-13-1

"Hey ! I'm a Sri Lankan and I dont have a middle name. I really must be special." Sanjiv, I won't trust you until I see your passport

End of over 106 (5 runs) New Zealand 316/4

    • BJ Watling 39 (78b 5x4)
    • DG Brownlie 17 (40b 2x4)
    • H Masakadza 9-4-18-1
    • CB Mpofu 22-4-71-0

""Ancient" is a bit harsh for Marvan! He's 40 (41 later this month). I can think of several batsmen who were still playing test cricket at that age (including Gooch)!" James, I think Gooch was the last man to score a century in his 40s. So you can see the definition of ancient has been changing ever since. Dravid is our hope, though

    • CB Mpofu 23-5-71-0
    • H Masakadza 9-4-18-1
107.1

Masakadza to Brownlie, no run, short of a length, stays low outside off, but there is enough time to recover and defend it back

107.2

Masakadza to Brownlie, no run, punched to mid-off, difficult to place the ball at this slow pace

107.3

Masakadza to Brownlie, no run, looks to work this to leg, gets a leading edge as he turns the face too soon, but it lands safely before reaching cover

Masakadza to Brownlie, no run, half-volley on the pads, pushed to the regulation midwicket

End of over 108 (1 run) New Zealand 317/4

    • DG Brownlie 18 (46b 2x4)
    • BJ Watling 39 (84b 5x4)
    • H Masakadza 10-4-19-1

108.2

    • BJ Watling 39 (84b 5x4)

    • H Masakadza 10-4-19-1

"The reason our names are so long is because they are actually whole sentences!" says Matt with a new screenname, "thisiswhyournamesarelong". And he insists it is funny. Matt mate, you can't be serious

109.1

Masakadza to Brownlie, no run, stays low outside off, stays back to defend it. Enough time to make the adjustment

109.2

Masakadza to Brownlie, 1 run, worked away off the hip

109.3

Masakadza to Watling, no run, wide of the crease, slower ball, on a length outside off, defended off the front foot

109.4

Masakadza to Watling, no run, defended to mid-on off the front foot

109.5

Masakadza to Watling, no run, wide of the crease again, length ball around off, defended to mid-off

"Can anyone suggest why NZ is playing so defensively? They are 320-4 on an absolute road yet are content to block the straight ones and leave the wide ones. A little more enthusiasm at the crease wouldn't go amiss..." Angus this is a very slow wicket, and Zimbabwe are exploiting it by taking the pace off it. And these are two young batsmen one of whom might have to be dropped when Ryder is back. So a little caution is understandable. And by that I mean "little caution"

109.6

Masakadza to Watling, no run, defended off the front foot

End of over 110 (1 run) New Zealand 319/4

    • BJ Watling 39 (88b 5x4)

110.2

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, drives this length ball, but can't beat cover

110.3

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, slides well down the leg side, Watling misses out on a freebie

110.4

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball outside off, holds its line, squares him up, takes a soft edge that doesn't carry to gully

110.5

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, defended to mid-on, off the front foot

110.6

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, half-volley outside off, driven well, to the left of mid-off, but not left enough to beat him

    • BJ Watling 39 (88b 5x4)
    • CB Mpofu 25-7-71-0

"My definition of "ancient" changes too. It means "much older than me"! Marvan fails that test by a distance (he's much younger)! Luckily for me, people living longer means there are still a few "ancients" around!" Similarly, James, whenever I am told to do something worthwhile with my life, I respond by saying there is still time. I am still younger than Roger Federer. Here is Ray Price. One slip, one short leg in place

111.1

Price to Watling, no run, flighted outside off, defended back

111.2

Price to Watling, no run, slight turn after pitching in line with off, defended off the front foot

111.3

Price to Watling, no run, much slower through the air, middle and leg, full, defended back

111.4

Price to Watling, no run, that's a strange shot, he walks right across to a flat length ball, and is hit dead in front. Why did he not appeal? There must have been a faint inside edge that I didn't pick but Ray did

111.5

Price to Watling, no run, defended to mid-on, off the front foot

111.6

Price to Watling, no run, really slow again, driven, but not wide of cover

End of over 112 (maiden) New Zealand 319/4

112.4

Mpofu to Brownlie, 1 run, worked away off the pads for a single

112.5

Mpofu to Watling, no run, length ball outside off, defended off the front foot

"I'm younger than Graham Gooch, so the only thing stopping me from becoming England cricket coach is a complete lack of ability, I guess!" You can say that, James

112.6

Mpofu to Watling, OUT, Lovely delivery, lovely catch. This pitch, a sleeping beauty, stuns you once in a while. Short of a length, outside off, he is shaping to cut at it, but it jumps off and nips back in. The ball hits the bat rather than the bat hit ball. Then Chakabva, who has been wrong-foooted, changes direction and dives to his right to catch him

BJ Watling c †Chakabva b Mpofu 39 (136m 96b 5x4 0x6) SR: 40.62

End of over 113 (1 run) New Zealand 320/5

Goes over the wicket

113.6

Price to Brownlie, no run, flighted outside leg, turns sharply, hits the inside of the right pad, but doesn't tickle onto the stumps

    • DL Vettori 0 (0b)

Dan Vettori to face for the first time

114.1

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, length ball, angling outside off, defended to cover

114.2

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, pitched up outside off, driven to mid-off. Doesn't quite time it

"I understand the caution of 2 young batsmen but 11 runs in 10 overs when you're 319/4 is just too slow. This could be a moment for the Phantom. When the next wicket falls they should send him in with a license to throw bat at ball. I'm sure he'd relish the chance." I hear you, Mark

114.3

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, well outside off this time, angled away too, left alone

""still younger than Roger Federer". Implying that one day you may not be?" If I outlive him, Gav. Although seeing he is the fitter of the two of us, I don't see that happening

114.4

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, starts just outside off, angling away, driven to cover

Three slips and a gully for Vettori

114.5

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, drives at a length ball that stops at him. Uppishly it goes, but falls well short of mid-off

114.6

Mpofu to Vettori, no run, slower ball around off, defended with an open face

End of over 115 (maiden) New Zealand 320/5

    • DL Vettori 0 (6b)

"The paint is winning the race here... Thats it, I'm so bored of the go slow that I'm going to bed! No wonder we are ranked so lowly now..." Rodd throws in the towel

116.1

Mpofu to Brownlie, 2 runs, length ball on the pads, worked away for a couple

116.2

Mpofu to Brownlie, FOUR, short and wide, an appetiser just before lunch, cut away for the first boundary in 15 overs. I guess that's enough time for a regulation Kiwi roof to be painted and dried

116.3

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, length ball, middle and leg, pushed to midwicket

116.4

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, full, on off, defended to mid-off

"Hey Sid - I've lost a written comment. Could you plz check if it's there with you? Oh, there it is. OK thanks Sid, I've found it." Ali has stooped so low to see his name here

116.5

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, yorker, middle and off, dug out without trouble

Last ball before lunch

116.6

Mpofu to Brownlie, no run, slower ball, left alone outside off

12.30pmThat's lunch then, after a delayed start. Zimbabwe have done well on the slow pitch to keep the runs down and pick two wickets. Join us around 1.05pm for the second session

End of over 117 (6 runs) New Zealand 327/5

    • DG Brownlie 27 (82b 3x4)

Welcome back. "I was watching the game instead of studying for my exam tomorrow, and I'm beginning to think that studying is going to be more fun. That's right, studying" Cob gives a vent.

"The suspense is killing me. I actually want to see The Phantom get his 200th wicket more than I want to see his 30th duck. Weird, huh?" Smudgeon, Chris Martin has to be the biggest internet celebrity among this New Zealand team

117.1

Price to Vettori, no run, moves well across to defend this flighted delivery outside off

117.2

Price to Vettori, FOUR, what a shot. he jumps out of the crease, takes this on the full, and whips this wristily from outside off, between mid-on and midwicket, all along the ground

117.3

Price to Vettori, no run, full and wide outside off, Vettori doesn't play at this

117.4

Price to Vettori, 1 leg bye, moves across again, but maybe too far across. Hit on the pad with both middle and leg stumps visible. Price doesn't appeal because of too much turn from outside off

Stays over the wicket

117.5

Price to Brownlie, no run, pitched up on leg, defended back to him

117.6

Price to Brownlie, no run, another flighted delivery, another dead-bat defensive

End of over 118 (5 runs) New Zealand 332/5

Ncube to bowl now

118.1

Ncube to Vettori, no run, length ball on off, defended off the front foot

118.2

Ncube to Vettori, FOUR, wide half-volley, he has already got a wicket with it, but this time Vettori reaches it well and drives it square for four

118.3

Ncube to Vettori, 1 run, just short of a length, pulled wide of midwicket for one

"Couple of silly questions. Why is Chris Martin called "The Phantom"? And where is Tim Southee?" James, he is the Ghost Who Walks. Some accounts tell me he was given that name by a former colleague, Sriram Veers, during commentary. Oh, and Southee could be injured

118.4

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, looks to cut this, but doesn't quite get the length. Ends up dabbing it to gully

118.5

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, length ball, middle and leg, pushed to midwicket

118.6

Ncube to Brownlie, 2 runs, steered away past gully

Price to Vettori, no run, Vettori charges down again, wrists this full toss to mid-on

119.2

Price to Vettori, no run, down the wicket again, gets close to the pitch of the ball to drive it to mid-on

119.3

Price to Vettori, SIX, and he has had enough of that mid-on fieldsman. Comes down the track again, but chips this over mid-on. Deliberately he doesn't get too close to the ball, because he needs room to get elevation

119.4

Price to Vettori, 1 run, flatter, quicker, worked around the corner for one

Stays over the wicket

119.5

Price to Brownlie, no run, pitched up on middle and off, defended back

120.1

Ncube to Vettori, 1 run, short of a length, angling across, placed wide of cover for one

120.2

120.3

Ncube to Brownlie, 2 runs, short of a length, pulled away, wide of deep square, comes back for two

"Now that Taylor's back in the shed, can I dream that he'll pick up this comment and send The Phantom out to bat when Vettori's glorious cameo comes to an end? Give the fans what I want I say!" Stuart I don't think they are allowed Internet access in the shed. I clearly remember we had to once switch off a wireless router at P Sara Oval because they could connect to that in the dressing room

120.4

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, defended off the front foot, to cover

120.5

Ncube to Brownlie, no run, short of a length, accurate, stays back to defend

"Chris Martin must be one of the few players who has more test wickets (199) than runs (109) in his test career. Even Courtney Walsh and Danny Morrison didn't manage that. Mark of a true rabbit! Anyone know of any others?" James, Njabulo Ncube is one

121.1

Price to Vettori, 1 run, down the wicket again, this time long-on is back, so he pushes a single to that man

121.2

Price to Brownlie, FOUR, Vettori's positivity has rubbed on. Brownlie comes down the track and makes room this time to drive it between the bowler and mid-off. Top shot

121.3

"Martin's strike rate in t20I is 83.33 which is exactly equal to Sachin's t20I strike rate. Now who's the better batsman." Rohith, I would say Martin because he has sustained it over a longer period of time

"Stefan is, of course, right that Martin not getting out in a T20I is "Bradmanesque". As I recall, Bradman was never dismissed in a T20 International either (or a ODI, come to that). This may possibly be because he never played one." James, but Martin has Bradman's average and Tendulkar's strike-rate. Admit it, you can't beat a man with such credentials. Mpofu comes back

"Let's see if all these guys laughing at The Phantom can swallow this stat.

"just look at how much praise Marto is getting for his batting. He has come along way from someone who would turn up to training with only his boots to bowl with!" Ross, I think I also heard he didn't have a car until he was pretty old, so he didn't bother carrying his batting kit back then.

Price to Patel, no run, Jits doesn't look like he wants to play this defensive game for too long, charges at price and mis-hits him to mid-on

141.3

Price to Patel, no run, defends this one back to Price

141.4

Price to Patel, SIX, it was only a matter of time. Patel leaves the crease, makes room, and swipes across the line of this length ball, sending it over midwicket

141.5

Price to Patel, no run, slower through the air, around middle and leg, turns past Patel's bat

"Can I put in a word of appreciation (and sympathy) for the Zim bowlers? At least 25 overs each (40 for Price) on a road, and they've never let NZ get away (above 3 an over). Great man in soon?" Yes James, those wickets of Vettori and Brownlie were key in this session. Marto next man in

142.1

Mpofu to Patel, no run, length ball outside off, defended off the front foot

142.2

Mpofu to Patel, FOUR, nicely glanced away, this length ball jags in too far down leg, and he guides it past the keeper

"God only knows the fear that is going through the minds of the Zim players knowing that HE will be out in the middle any minute now. I feel for them." Yes, Steve Davies, Mpofu has completely lost his line

142.3

Mpofu to Patel, no run, driven on the up, can't beat extra cover

142.4

Mpofu to Patel, no run, bouncer, not too quick, easy to duck uner

142.5

Mpofu to Patel, OUT, there it is. Get ready for Marto. Patel does the honourable thing by lobbing this slower ball to cover. Just couldn't check the shot well enough after being deceived by the change of pace. Price and Mpofu do The Dance again

JS Patel c Mawoyo b Mpofu 12 (18m 17b 1x4 1x6) SR: 70.58

Wonder if Chris martin wants to sing Dylan's line: "Don't get up gentlemen, I'm only passing through." I don't care, I have given him a standing ovation. Here He is. Three slips in place

142.6

Mpofu to Martin, no run, Mpofu bowls a yorker, immaculately dug out by MARTIN

End of over 143 (4 runs) New Zealand 425/9

    • CS Martin 0 (1b)
    • RA Young 8 (34b 1x4)
    • CB Mpofu 34-10-92-4
    • RW Price 42-7-117-1

"Chris Martin has scored 60 off his 109 runs in the form of boundaries. That is nearly 60%. Take that" Arun Lobo, that is a better rate than Sehwag's

143.1

Price to Young, 1 run, leaves the crease, pushes this length ball to midwicket, hands over the strike to Tom, where it belongs

Razor goes round the stumps now. A slip, a silly point, a short leg

143.2

Price to Martin, no run, defended picturesquely to silly point, off the front foot, covering the turn

143.3

Price to Martin, OUT, Oh cruelty. Quicker, flatter, doesn't turn much, stays low, and squeezes under the bat of the great man. Martin tucks the bat under his arm and walks off. That's duck No. 30

CS Martin b Price 0 (4m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

That's tea too. Solid bowling effort from Zimbabwe, but the ball is turning, and their batsmen will have to work equally hard. I'll be back in no time. "All this hype about Marto's batting, Let's be honest folks, he's a fading star, he's done nothing since his profilic batting run of 2008 - in which he racked up an outstanding 24 runs @ 2.66" Max is put in the mind of ageing rockstars
