HARARE (AFP) – Zimbabwe eased to a 335 run win in the first Test with Bangladesh on Saturday on the fourth day.

The hosts largely had captain Brendan Taylor to thank as his second century of the match, ending 102 not out, ensured the tourists faced a daunting target of 483 to chase.

Taylor’s feat was only the third time a Zimbabwean batsman had scored centuries in a test match.

The Flower brothers Andy and Gary being the previous two to do so.
