Zimbabwe make steady start


Share post:

West Indies pacer Kemar Roach grabbed two wickets but Zimbabwe made an encouraging start in the pre-lunch session on the opening day of the first Test at Kensington Oval on Tuesday.
Roach, returning to the Test team for the first time since last August, removed Vusi Sibanda for 12 and Hamilton Masakadza for 17 but Zimbabwe came through the rest of the period without alarms to reach 91 for two at lunch.
Opener Tino Mawoyo anchored the visitors’ effort with an unbeaten 45 after Zimbabwe opted to bat first on winning the toss.
Roach had two for 27 from nine overs at the break.
From their 13-man squad, West Indies omitted batsman Narsingh Deonarine and leg-spinner Veerasammy Permaul. (HG)
