New Zealanders playing again good cricket at Queens Sports Club, Bulawayo against Zimbabwe Today, Saturday, Aug 6th, 2016. In their first match, NZ cricket team batsmen blasted their innings with smashing 4r and 6s in their first test.
Three batsmen scored their magnificent centuries in their first innings and now MJ Guptill scored 87 runs and out when 48.3 gone. Plumb in front. Tiripano has a wicket. Full delivery on off but the ball darts back in sharply to beat Guptill’s forward prod on the inside edge. Struck Guptill in front of off and middle, no doubt about that one. Always looked the most likely way to get Guptill. Planted his front foot forward and a bit of movement did for Guptill 169/1.
New Zealand won the toss and chose to bat first.
