New Zealand are in firm control💪 of the 2⃣nd Test against Zimbabwe at Bulawayo as expected after they racked up a mammoth first innings score of 582/4 before declaring🙌. It was no surprise to most as the hosts' bowling attack rarely😴 looked threatening enough to take 5 wickets, not to mention all 10 of their opponents🙆. After Tom Lathan had scored a century💯 on day 1, Kane Williamson (113) and Ross Taylor (124*) also helped themselves to tons👏. BJ Watling remained unbeaten on 84 along with Taylor when NZ decided to declare👍.
But to their credit, Zimbabwe batted with caution⚠ to ensure they did not lose any wickets, though the progress was at snail's pace😣. The hosts were 55/0 in 30 overs at the end of day 2.
