Zimbabwe collapse after steady start
Hamilton Masakadza and Brendan Taylor shared a century partnership before Zimbabwe suffered a collapse on Day One of the second Test against Pakistan at Harare Sports Club yesterday.
Zimbabwe were 237 for eight at close of play. Masakadza (75) and Taylor (51) put on 110 for the third wicket but the rest of the batting crumbled on a pitch which had cracks that caused several deliveries to keep low.
Masakadza’s dismissal was the first of six wickets that fell for 94 runs before the close of play.
