ZIM vs WI 2nd test ending 22/3/2013

Overall a repeat script of the first test match between the two sides. More or less, the scripts are being repeated round the globe, except for the Test match series between SLand Ban, and ODI series between Pak and SA. Remains to be seen whether scripts undergo a change in the final tests between NZ vs Eng, and Ind vs Aus, or continue on the beaten track. 

Not much to write about this match except for the fact that one should see how the Zimbabwean batsmen threw their wickets to justify the book-makers' odds. Sibanda in the first innings being exemplary. Masakadza tried to be out caught but ball landed away from the fielder. He got himself bowled out not many balls later. Then Taylor was criticised by the commentators also for his dismissal. As soon as Waller played the shot, it was obvious he was trying to be caught out and he succeeded. I didn't view all the batsmen getting out, but some here and there. Not much different in the 2nd innings, though might have not been that obvious. Masakadza gloving the ball and Taylor getting out only were viewed live by me. May catch up with other dismissals sometime through repeat telecast of highlights.
