Craig Alexander fashion SA win

Asked to bat, South Africa built their total around a fluent 92 by Rilee Rossouw. The rest of the top order got starts, but none of them carried on to produce big runs. The best partnership of the innings involved Rossouw and Vaughn van Jaarsveld 77 for the fifth wicket as South Africa pushed on to a competitive 244 for 8 in their 50 overs. Left armer Brian Vitori and medium pacer Elton Chigumbura were the pick of the bowlers for Zimbabwe, claiming five wickets between them at less than four runs an over.

How can a team cruising at a RR of over 5 an over with the required rate being just 2,50 conspire to loose 5 wickets in the space of a few overs? I understand that one positive was that the team was staffed by a next to third team zim, baring Hamilton , Regis , Utseya Vitori instead of chigumbura but surely the idea must be not to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!

Very dissapointing that Zim could not win the two matches against SA when we were in excellent positions to do so! In fact we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory both times. I agree totally with Titch that we had only to get singles and we would have won but instead, guys went out and tried to smash the ball for some reason. Great to see Chakabva increase his run rate but Waller, why could you not stick around a bit longer and show more patience? on the other hand yes, it was experimental and it was good to see Vitori introduced for the first time. I guess Taibu, Williams and Taylor and Price were out to allow some youngsters a chance.

Collingwood’s slow burn

Alex Bowden: A swashbuckling batsman can win people over in an instant. Other players, like Paul Collingwood, 38 now, inveigle their way into your affections

Step up, captains

Martin Crowe: We can’t trust administrators or politicians to get us out of the current crisis. Captains, both current and former, need to take the reins

Sankaran Krishna: All grace, good looks and charisma, Farokh Engineer, Salim Durani and ML Jaisimha epitomised the charms of a bygone age

Rajasthan Royals were in a pretty much unassailable position to reach the playoffs with five matches to go, but their season collapsed dramatically amid a raft of odd tactical decisions

How much talent does the difficult player need?Exceptionally gifted but unreliable players are often given lots of rope by management, but far too many seem to believe themselves to be deserving of that leeway
