Brendan Taylor emerged one of the sole bright spots in the otherwise dull Zimbabwean batting performance as he reached his 29th One-Day International (ODI) half-century against South Africa in the sixth game of the ongoing triangular tournament being held in Zimbabwe. He reached his milestone in 71 balls.

Taylor’s innings consisted of two fours and as many sixes. He feasted on the spinners and part-time in bowlers in particular during his gritty knock. Though the match is virtually over and South Africa have already qualified for the final against Australia, Taylor will be hoping to remain unbeaten till the end of the match and even reach the three-figure mark.

The Zimbabwe wicket-keeper batsman also managed to end a dry run with the bat, with a month elapsing since he scored 93 in the only Test against South Africa in August.
