Zimbabwe had their backs to the wall for the first half of the day, only for their captain Brendan Taylor to lead a fightback with his third Test century. It was an impressive knock from Taylor and, given the circumstances leading up to the match, his unbeaten 105 may be one of the best knocks by a Zimbabwean batsman in recent times.
The home side ended the first day on 217 for 4, a significantly better position than seemed possible at one stage. Taylor's innings meant Bangladesh remained frustrated as they floundered an opportunity to take command. However, the four wickets would give the visitors hope of a better second day, with the knowledge that Zimbabwe have few experienced batsmen in their line-up.
Taylor's positive attitude should rub off on his team-mates, especially the other free-flowing batsmen. He began his innings with a lofted six off Enamul Haque jnr, and continued to dominate Bangladesh's most used spinner on the day. He swept Enamul with comfort and drove him, regardless of a deep fielder's position down the ground.
