    overs- Micheal Chinouya 0 (18) & Donald Tiripano 14 (33):
    Donald clean bowled by Wagner, the one who started ZIM’s downfall in the match. And finally with this, the resilience of ZIM comes to an end. NZ win the first Test of the two-Test series by an innings and 117 runs. They were made to work a lot in the field today thanks to a century by Sean WIlliams and good resistence shown by captain, Graeme Cremer. NZ go 1-0 up in the series but ZIM should take some positives from this match as they improved in their batting in the second innings and hung on late.
    Ross Taylor has been adjudged Man of the Match for his sublime 173 runs in the first innings for NZ.

    overs- Graeme Cremer 32 (108) & Sean Williams 73 (83):
    ZIM should be really happy with their performance in the first session. Only one wicket fell and that too very early. Sean Williams and Graeme Cremer have stood tall at the crease. Their current partnership stands at 97 off 159 balls. The more they make NZ wait, the better it is for them. A big learning curve this can be for them.

Williamson has an aggressive field set for both of them, especially for Williams as he is playing his shots and giving a few chances as well. How much can these two add for their side? Lunch still a long time ahead.
