In case you did not know, Tendai Chisoro on Sunday became the 103rd Zimbabwean to play Test cricket. The interesting part of Chisoro’s career has been his transformation from a fast bowler to a spinner, just a couple of years ago. He is still considered an asset for Zimbabwe in the limited-overs cricket. Although he was struggling to make an impact with the ball on Day Two, he still feels that Zimbabwe have the strength to pull off something extra-ordinary and is confident of them. He feels his side can still pose threat to the West Indies and pull off a series-levelling win in the second and final Test at the Queen’s Sports Club in Bulawayo.

On his bowling on Day Two: “It helped with the nerves, not bowling too early on. It gave me time to settle. And I knew it was the team plan. There was a leftie and a rightie batting, so since the captain [Greame Cremer] turns the ball away from the right-hand bat [so] he’d bowl from one end. We fancied Sikandar Raza more than me or the captain bowling at the left-hander, because he turns the ball away,”said Chisoro, as reported by ESPNCricinfo.

I think I started well with the ball, but I think I could bowl a little straighter. I was a little wide to the right hander, and the ball kept missing everything – the bat, the stumps, the pads. If I bowl a little straighter and then one doesn’t turn, I could get an lbw. Cremer keeps ZIM’s hopes alive on Day 2 of 2nd Test vs WI

On his seam bowling: I don’t really think about seam anymore as it’s been two years since I bowled seam,” Chisoro said. “So the adjustment I had to make came from being used to the limited-overs game, T20 and one-day stuff. I tend to bowl a little straighter to the right-hander, and a little quicker. Luckily, I didn’t play in the first Test, so I had time to adjust in bowling a little slower. That was entirely up to Streaky [Heath Streak, the coach] He helped me out with that. It was going to be easier for them if I’d bowled quicker, because then the ball just comes straight on. To set up the batsman [in a Test], you have to bowl a little slower.

On Zimbabwe’s chances in the second Test: When we look at the score now, it’s 78 for 1, but considering the number of overs we’ve bowled, the run-rate is a bit slow even for Test cricket. So if you add two wickets onto that score, it’s a different ballgame. [Devendra] Bishoo is one of the two batsmen out there now, and he’s not considered a batsman, so tomorrow he’ll come and play shots, and give us chances. Hopefully in the first hour we’ll strike early, and after that look to keep attacking them.

Considering what happened in the first Test, if we bowl West Indies out and we have a lead of around 100, we’ll fancy ourselves to bowl them out in the fourth innings and win the Test match. As a team, we said if we get 650 runs in both innings combined, we’ll be safe and have a chance to win the game.
