Sikandar Raza proceeded with his eminent execution with bat and ball as his unbeaten 85 kept Zimbabwe above water in the second Test against the West Indies on Thursday.
Raza had just scored 80 in the main innings and brought 5 for 99 with his offspin, and his second commitment with the bat enabled Zimbabwe to go to lunch on day five on 199 for six, driving by 77 runs.
The West Indies struck twice on the last morning as they hoped to wrap up the Zimbabwean innings and secure a 2-0 triumph in the two-coordinate arrangement at Queens Sports Club.
The hosts added only four rushes to their overnight toal of 140 for four preceding Peter Moor was gotten at chasm for 42 off the playing of Shannon Gabriel, while Malcolm Waller scored only 15 preceding he edged a conveyance from legspinner Devendra Bishoo to slip.
Be that as it may, Raza was unaffected, utilizing a survey to upset a mistaken lbw call after he had been given out on 72.
Wicketkeeper-batsman Regis Chakabva held up the flip side, making an unbeaten 11.
