Yep, and not just England. Seems to have been a trait in recent years that teams just throw in the towel.

Two early wickets for Cremer gives Zimbabwe the edge.

Sounds like Zimbabwe were absolutely sawn off by the third umpire who didn't give out Dickwella stumped even though he had nothing behind the line. Haven't seen the incident in question, but this sort of thing really shouldn't happen any more. Makes a farce of the game when a tight test match is ruined by a 3rd umpiring blunder.

Really takes the gloss off an excellent Sri Lankan lower order rearguard.

Zimbabwe, much like the Windies, have often had matches where we can say "oh, wow, they might improve from this point on"...but in reality, it never happens. The major issue is a lack of infrastructure and unless that is sorted out, all they will have is the odd good game.

Would help if players like Brendan Taylor and Kyle Jarvis hadn't decided to up sticks for county cricket. That is far more damaging overall than the players who have done similar from South Africa.

To their respective sides perhaps but while the global game of cricket will only be slightly diminished if Zimbabwe disappear from it, it will be severely damaged if South African cricket falls apart.

This is true, but of the lot who went Kolpak, only Abbot is that big a loss to SA and he is now 30 years old.

At least we can now reasonably conclude that Gary Ballance isn't that great a loss for Zimbabwean cricket.
