Zimbabwe now lead by 262 runs with four wickets in hand after Malcolm Waller (57*) and Sikandar Raza (97*) added an unbroken 107-run stand for the seventh wicket.
“Guys are extremely positive after the one-day series. It was great win and it helped all of us mentally. We’ve got a good chance here as well. We can go out there tomorrow and put on another 100 runs and It will give us a really good fighting chance,” Waller, who reached his fourth Test fifty in 54 balls, told journalists.
“I think we can be very positive and the guys are happy in our changing room. Obviously, when you are coming out in the fourth innings, it’s always going to be very tough. It was a really shaky start and it put us under lot of pressure in the changing room. It was a great partnership between Raza and Moor. I think that stabilized things and brought back the positivity. At the end of the day, we can be happy with what we have done,” Waller further added.
“I just try to play my cricket in the same way. I always like to be positive. I feel if I do that, I’m going to get my best. Whether it’s ODI cricket or Test cricket, I just like to go out there and play my shots and take strike as much as possible. Just stick along like that and today It worked out well and I was scoring nicely.”
