In the dog end of this competition but realised I'm clogging up the Zimbabwe international thread with posts about this tournament.

The fantastically named Joylord Gumbie got a century today as second place Mountaineers look strong at 267-2 against top of the table Mashonaland. Gumbie is 127* overnight.

After being totally dominated with the bat yesterday, Mashonaland managed to grasp it back a bit today but still have a huge mountain to climb.

Overnight Mountaineers were 267-2 and were all out for 464 - this was largely thanks to a much improved performance from Tony Munyonga; although his figures of 5-99 are eye-watering.

Mashonaland are going to struggle to reach the follow on as it stands - they reached stumps on 92-3.

This is turning into an embarrassment for the Mashonaland batmsen as they are being humilated vs the Mountaineers.

92-3 overnight. they were all out for 162. When asked to follow on it is only a stoic ninth wicket partnership of 60 that has taken them to stumps on 182-8.

Despite 8 of the Mashonaland batsmen batting twice in the day their highest individual score was 50 (Two scores of 25.) In terms of bowlers, Victor Nyauchi has a fivefer for the day - 2 in the first innings and 3 in the second.

The game will be finished by the time I wake up in the morning.

Mashonaland hung on a little longer than expected - 23 runs and 5 overs - but it was easy work for the Mountaineers to claim their victory.

Victor Nyauchi got his fourth wicket of the second innings to take his match figures to 6-75.
