***Official*** Bangladesh in Zimbabwe, 2013

Bangladesh falling to pieces now, this is like schoolboy cricket, should the follow-on be enforced? The pace bowlers have worked very hard today...

I like to see Zimbabwe come out and hit a quick 200-250 and give Bangladesh a day and a half on a deterioating 5th day pitch

I know nothing about Zim pitches except that they are a bit like South Africa, will it deteriorate much? And if it does, will it help the spinners or the fast bowlers more?

In Harare I would say it will assist the quicks more. Harare pitches have a habit of uneven bounce on the last day.

Incredible. 4 ducks and the last 5 wkts lost on the same score. Zimbucks batting again. Plenty of time so no real need to enforce the follow on.

Argh, can't believe Zimbabwe chose not to enforce the follow on. Jarvis bowling like a dream and the Bangladeshis completely demoralised. I can understand why they'd want to avoid batting last, but I honestly don't think that would've been a problem in this case.

No matter how good Shakib is, you can't take a half fit player into a five-day match. Not sure if he played any sort of match recently, it's only 2-3 weeks that he started training. I'm not trying to be too harsh on the best cricketer of the country but it was wrong decision to play half fit Shakib imo. Mahmudullah is completely out of sorts. I watched him closely today. He was playing every delivery pretty early with no timing or footwork. I'm not particularly happy that Nafees came into the test team riding on good two-three bpl knocks, he is still a walking wicket.

All the recent good batting performance came on flat tracks mostly so I was particularly interested to see how the team performs on these kind of pitches. Pretty disappointed tbh.

Gosh Taylor is to the rest of this Zimbabwean batting lineup as Crowe was to the the NZ batting lineup in the mid 90's. An international quality cricketer playing amongst club batsmen.

Do you think Taylor is the third best Zim bat of all time? I think its 1 Flower 2 Houghton 3 Taylor.

I rate him above Grant Flower for sure.
