Zimbabwe if they can keep the New Zealand’s pacers and spinner at bay on Day Five, on a pitch that is showing signs of deterioration, will achieve a moral victory for sure. Batting coach Lance Klusener’s words,”We are pretty confident that we can bat for the day”, might come as an encouragement for the Zimbabwe batsmen on Day Five, but they will still have to strive in the middle and save the Test, thereby not allowing the visitors to get a 2-0 win.

All eyes will be first innings’ centurion Craig Ervine, Sean Williams and Peter Moor to lead Zimbabwe’s fightback. The first session of play on Day Five will be crucial from both team’s point of view. If Zimbabwe can put in a good resilient fight in the first session and not lose wickets they could pull out a remarkable draw. It won’t be an easy job against a quality fast-bowling attack though.
