Chevrons need to im­prove on bowl­ing

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - National News -

ED­I­TOR — If the Zimbabwe na­tional cricket team, the Chevrons, are to pro­duce great re­sults they just need to im­prove on the bowl­ing depart­ment.

Re­cent per­for­mances show that the bats­men are do­ing well com­pared to the bowlers.

The bowlers have been leak­ing too many runs of late while the bats­men have been do­ing well either set­ting re­spectable tar­gets or chas­ing the set tar­get.

The only one area which Heath Streak and his coach­ing team need to work on and im­prove is the bowl­ing depart­ment.

Apart from a few ex­pe­ri­enced bowlers like Luke Jongwe and John Nyumbu as well as promis­ing and good all­rounders like Sean Wil­liams, our Chevrons lack depth in bowl­ing and it is that depart­ment which is cost­ing the team of late.

The fact the coach of the side, Heath Streak, is a for­mer vet­eran bowler and a good for­mer all-rounder, should see a marked im­prove­ment in the bowl­ing area.

We hope those bats­men post­ing im­pres­sive runs are go­ing to con­tinue do­ing so for our Chevrons to keep ris­ing and re­main one of the finest sides in world cricket. Felix Zonke, Harare
