Default Zimbabwe face defeat by PCB Patron\'s XI

Zimbabwe's inexperienced cricket team faced an innings defeat despite a maiden first-class hundred from opener Brendon Taylor in their four-day tour match at Gaddafi Stadium here Saturday.

The tourists were reeling at 142-8 in their second innings at close on Day Three, needing another 63 runs to avoid an innings thrashing.


The 18-year-old Taylor hit a resolute 141 but failed to help his side avoid follow-on after being dismissed for 324 in their first innings in reply to Pakistan Cricket Board Patron's XI 529-9 declared.


In the second innings Taylor fought hard for his 16 at number six but failed to survive the dying moments in fading light.


Earlier resuming at 187-4, Zimbabwe were saved from total disaster by Taylor's hundred whose 356-minute vigil fetched him 141 studded with 21 boundaries and a six.


Taylor's previous best first class score was 82.


A valiant last wicket stand of 45 between Graeme Alexandar Cremer (26 not out) and Tawanda Mupariwa (16) brought the tourists to within 56 runs of avoiding the follow-on but in the end they failed.


Pakistan prospect Riaz Afridi took 3-63 with Rao Iftikhar, Yasir Arafat and Wasim Khan chipping in with two wickets apiece.


Following on, Zimbabwe lost wickets at regular intervals with only opener Dion Ebrahim putting any real resistance with 37. Alestar Maregwede with 30 and Mark Vermeulen at 26 were other notable contributors.

Brendan Taylor will be awesome. Check out how many 18 and 19 year olds are in the Zimbabwe team. It is amazing.

Zimbabwe lost by over and innings. That is poor. They are not a test playing nation. But i hope they will be so BD can beat them.

As long as there is "future" in front of stars, I am happy. Let us beat them first before these "future stars" becomes stars.

Agreed Faisal. I have also noticed that of these future stars 3 of them are teeenagers and the rest are in there early 20s. Cremer could also be a star.

I think you should add the name of Dion Ebrahim who has scored more than thousand runs in both the forms with a test batting average 26.17

Why does bangladesh need to hurry up and beat this 3rd string Zimbabwean side? I mean they will get thrashed in Bangladesh next year, for sure. But remember that our imcompetent Bangladesh team did quite well in the ODIs against the first team Zim side earlier this year, including winning one. If it weren't for Heath Streak, they would have lost at home 0-3, and that was before the player fiasco. We have struggled in tests against them, but I think that is a mental thing.
