Already trailing by a game in the two-Test series against visitors West Indies, Zimbabwe will have to start from the scratch in the second and final Test at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo from Sunday. Although the Zimbabweans were off to a good start initially in the first Test, they just could not keep up with the momentum. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe skipper Graeme Cremer has rued that the hosts will need to contribute more with the bat in the first innings, as it is the most crucial part in any Test match. Zimbabwe are coming off a splendid series win in Sri Lanka, beating the hosts 3-2 in the ODI series. FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: Zimbabwe vs West Indies 2017-18, 2nd Test at Bulawayo

On scoring runs in the first innings

“That first innings with the bat is so crucial in Test cricket.If you don’t do well in that first innings, you’re always chasing the game. So we’re hoping to rectify that. To win a Test match, you’ve probably got to score 600 runs in your two innings, so hopefully we’ll do that and won’t leave too much for our second innings with the bat,” said Cremer on the eve of the second Test at Bulawayo, as reported by ESPNCricinfo.
