Devendra Bishoo scythed through Zimbabwe’s top order with 5 for 79 as West Indies surged back into the ascendancy on the second afternoon at Queens Sports Club. His first ball of the morning was hit for six, but Bishoo soon found his rhythm and in an unbroken spell of 23 overs on either side of lunch, he undid all of the hard work done by Zimbabwe’s bowlers with spin, bounce and accuracy. The hosts were bowled out for 159 during the extended post-lunch session, giving West Indies a healthy 60-run lead in what is becoming a fast moving Test match.
