New Zealand maintained the upper hand in their one-off Test against Zimbabwe on Wednesday, despite the hosts fighting back strongly throughout the second day at Queens Sports Club.
Pakistan continued their winning streak in Zimbabwe with a crushing victory in the first Twenty20 international. Their batsmen treated the opposition attack with utter disdain and smashed Zimbabwe for the highest total they have ever conceded in a Twenty20.
Zimbabwe and Bangladesh ended a competitive second day with the Test finely balanced between the sides. Bangladesh batted with a similar caution to the one Zimbabwe's batsmen implemented on a pitch that remains good for batting but offers something for the bowlers as well.
