Zimbabwe Cricket World Cup 2011 Odds

Zimbabwe have been in the cricket wilderness for some time now having lost their test status a while ago over security issues, they are still seen in the ODI matches in the major tournaments but in truth they are now a cricketing minnow and will struggle in the ICC Cricket World Cup. They have a thin squad without any real star names in their ranks which is sure to harm them, they will need to rely on the one or two experienced players in their squad if they are to have any chance at all of moving past the group stages.

Perhaps the key man for Zimbabwe will as always be Tatenda Taibu who has been the real class of the team for a number of years; the wicket-keeper batsman can be a class act on his day and will need to be on top form through the tournament. They also have Charles Coventry in their middle order who became famous in 2009 for hitting 194 runs in a game against Bangladesh. At the time it was the highest ODI score, it has since been surpassed by Sachin Tendulkar, but it showed he can be a big player for the Zimbabweans on his day and they will hope he can rediscover that at the World Cup.
