Raza ruminates on shortcomings despite maiden five wickets haul
Sikandar Raza, the Zimbabwe leg spinner, hopes the arrival of the new ball to be the game changer in the fourth day.


Sikandar Raza, the Zimbabwe bowler spoke about his shortcomings in the recently ongoing Test against West Indies. In the match so far, Zimbabwe is ahead in their score tally by 96, but it could have been better if Raza had offered a little more emphasis. However, it was only his endeavor that West Indies lost 7 wickets for 230 runs. He nicked five wickets in the inning reach his maiden-five-wicket-haul in Test format. The blooper came up when Raza wasted an opportunity to review the lbw appeal against Jason Holder. It was because, the bowler already reviewed a decision on Roston Chase earlier, which gave zilch. New Zealand could not review Holder's wicket, which could have change the course of the game.

Jason Holder, on the other hand, scored an unbeaten 71 by the end of the day. The player partnered with Shane Dowrich for 144 runs. Per Raza, Zimbabwe had winning instances too. He pointed out the wicket of Roston Chase could be of a huge benefit to New Zealand. Raza bowled 44 overs in the inning. He gave only 82 runs taking down five wickets in the inning. Per the player, his made him exhausted. However, he is hopeful to come refreshed for the next day, the fourth day of the match. Also, a new ball would be used in the match and it might give better prospects to Zimbabwe bowlers, Raza retrospect.

Raza said Zimbabwe bowled well. He said, the team worked fine in every aspect of the game with adequate energy. He commented that sometimes it happens such that the opponent batsmen play well despite everything going fine. Raza is waiting for the new ball to turn the table for Zimbabwe. In the fourth day, the bowlers will get a new ball after 10 overs. He added, in the previous day, there were several positive signs including the slow turning of deliveries.
