    4/217 at stumps. Overall a good day for Zimbabwe. May have been a different story without the Taylor/Waller partnership. Taylor really needed this big innings after a poor Windies tour. Hopefully he can keep going with the tail tomorrow. 350 would be a good first innings total from here.

    38 added and a couple of wickets in the first hour - Taylor seems to be having trouble with his timing though, he's only added 11 to his score. Says a lot about Bangladesh's resources that they have an opening bowler averaging 74 playing in his 16th Test. Will Mortaza ever play Tests again?

    Hmmm ... the supposedly not-fully-fit Shakib is bowling, while Mahmudullah, with 28 Test wickets including a 5-for, remains ignored. This stand is assuming dangerous value now - surely something different is needed, Ashraful maybe?

    Good stuff from Taylor. I liked that little ramp shot.

    So pleased to see Cremer finally making some use of his undoubted batting ability. His Test batting record was a joke before this innings; hell I don't even think he's done anywhere near as well in domestic cricket with the bat as he should have.

    The fact that I got into an argument with someone yesterday who said he should be batting below Meth and Shingi makes it sweeter.

    Our tail certainly looks better with Cremer, Meth and Masakadza. We still need to 400 which should be more than enough

    Jarvis looks more like McGrath every time I see him bowl.

    I was about to ask what sort of speeds he hits. So around mid 130s I presume? Just checked a short youtube clip of him taking 5 against NZ. He swung them in and out on that admittedly short clip and looks more than handy.

    Yeah, he was a real tearaway quick when he first hit the scene; bowled 140+ but had a terrible domestic record and unsurprisingly bowled wayward pies internationally as well. He had a few injuries though and remodelled his action; he's come back a slower (low to mid 130s) but far, far better bowler for doing so. You can really tell how much he's just straight up copied McGrath from certain angles but that's not exactly a bad thing.

    He stints with Central Districts in New Zealand have noticeably improved his bowling as well; it's something I think ZC should be encouraging rather than punishing like they did with Vusi.

    Seems the channel I was watching this on has decided to show the IPL instead now. How annoying.

    Wickets with new ball is crucial. As we have seen in the previous Innings, it gets difficult to pick up wickets here once the ball fades away
