Losing the toss was probably the best thing to have happened this morning for the cricket team. Although we were heading towards a typical disastrous first innings total being 4 down 120 odd, it was Mushy's sensible batting and Shakib's fluke innings that turned things around. No matter how many times we get frustrated with Shakib and Tamim at the manner they throw their wickets away, they are still miles better than the Ryads, SNs and Jahiruls.
The pitch looks more spin friendly than the 1st test so with Zimbabwe having to bat last I would say we are in a good position now. We need to use the better of the conditions and get ourselves from a good position into a commanding one by adding another 70-80 runs. The way our tail bats, who knows it could even be over before 310! but if Nasir can keep his head and build a partnership with the tail we can get past 350. We have to remember Tailor was the only guy who made the difference and helped build the Zimbabwe innings... If we can take him out there is a good chance we can get them out cheaply with spin
