1. Twin centuries for Taylor in Zimbabwe's 10th Test victory
Captain Brendan Taylor broke Zimbabwe batting records as the team marched to a 335 run victory over Bangladesh in the 1st Test match at Harare Sports Club. Taylor was man of the match having scored 171 first innings runs followed by an unbeaten 102 in the second innings, becoming only the third Zimbabwean to score twin centuries and the first Zimbabwean captain to do so. It's only the 14th instance of a captain scoring a century in each innings of a Test match, meaning Taylor joins an elite club including Sir Donald Bradman and Ricky Ponting among other Test cricket greats.
