Would you Adam and Eve it? The Zimbos have just turned over the mighty pre-tournament favourites Australia in their opening match of the International Twenty20 Championship, and with just two match each in the group stages Australia’s game against England on Friday becomes a must win for the side many thought would walk this tournament.

Zimbabwe, who in other forms of the game are so bad they are not allowed to play test cricket anymore, pulled off the surprise victory in the driving rain. Brendan Taylor was the Zimbabwe hero, he hit 60 off 45 balls and the penultimate ball went for four leg-byes to seal a famous win.

Ponting has just labelled the Australia top order “diabolical”, fair dos, honesty is the best policy.
