Despite having gone off to a good start initially, hosts Zimbabwe could not carry forward the momentum as they succumbed to a 117-run defeat against visitors West Indies in the opening Test. Now, they would be playing to level terms and settle for a series draw when they take on the Windies in the second and final Test at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo from Sunday. Meanwhile, Zimbabwe head coach Heath Streak said that he would not want the side to make any unforced changes, going ahead into the second Test. He has also said that the bowlers need proper rest, following a tough outing in the intense head during the opening Test.

On making changes in the Zimbabwean side for the second Test

“We’re unlikely to make unforced changes. We’ve got a couple of niggles that we’re managing, so we’ll have a final check tomorrow on one or two guys, but we’ll try not to change the team too much. That’s what we’ve done consistently over the last year, trying to give guys a fair crack,” said Streak on the eve of the second Test at Bulawayo, as reported by ESPNCricinfo.

On the rest the Zimbabwean team needs

“We just gave our quick bowlers a couple of days off with some achy bodies, and a couple of the guys had big workloads, the spinners especially, so just time to mentally refresh. And we went through what was effective and worked for us in the Test. There’s obviously not much we can change in terms of our skills, just making sure that tactically we know exactly what we want to do and what we want to execute in the game.” Cremer: First innings with the bat is crucial in Test cricket

On the soft dismissals in the first Test

“We spoke about soft dismissals and I know the guys were very disappointed, especially the middle-order guys. There were a few soft dismissals from the middle order. On the keeping front, Chakabva didn’t score runs but he had an outstanding game with the gloves on a wicket that turned a lot. He’s got an important role to do, and hopefully he can contribute with the bat in this next game.”

On the peculiar weather conditions in Bulawayo

“It’s very unseasonal to get this cold, guti [persistent drizzle] type weather. Normally October is quite hot, with thunderstorms. We’ll have to see, but the forecast from Monday onwards is improving. If the wicket gets a bit of sun on it, I think we’ll see it continue to dust up. It’s dry now, and very similar [to the last pitch].”
