The last time number eight and nine batsmen scored centuries in the same innings in Test cricket was in 1908.

At what stage do WI start to worry. Another 50 runs? 25 overs?

If we don't bowl them out by tea, it's a draw IMHO....

I think it was a mistake to go to Bulawayo without another specialist spinner, probably a left-armer. Chisoro took three wickets. If Miller was there, we wouldn't have to waste so many overs on part-time offspinners like Chase, Brathwaite and Blackwood.
:no
Now, that's a big wicket!!! Raza out to Holder for 89....

Chase might have bowled more than a couple.

Plenty of time left.

Tea 259-7

Brathwaite 12 overs, 0-25
Chase, 14 overs, 0-26
Blackwood, 6 overs, 0-11

Three part-timers doing the work that could've been done by a specialist left-arm spinner.

Starting to get a bit tight, but maybe the break will bring a wicket.

You need a bit more despair to bring about a jinx Mike.

Chakabva's fifty has killed the game off. WI attack is a blunt chisel from Homebase trying to cut the diamond defences of the world class Zimbabwe bats. There's no chance of a wicket now. Time to shake hands.

Zim have done well, batting 144 overs for the loss of 7 wickets. Credit where its due, this WI team was competitive against England
