Tsiga should replace Chakabva in next test series, infact Tsiga should have been there in Bangladesh Tour after having great domestic season

I was wondering for the last two days as to why Rhinos declared that aggressively on day 1. Could be a masterstroke. If a team bowls out its opposition, they get a point. Rhinos, by declaring with 9 wickets down, denied that point to Eagles. Eagles so far have no points to gain from this game also having given away first innings lead. It might come down to every single point in the end, with Eagles leading so handsomely at the moment. Inspired thinking by the Rhinos management if that was the reasoning behind the day 1 declaration.

Also, Mountaineers missed the chance to top up with 1 more point for reaching 500 by just 3 runs in their first dig. Could come back to haunt them in their title race. They already have 5 points for this match (300, 400, 150+ by Maruma, getting Tuskers all out in first dig, and first innings lead). An outright win in this match against the Tuskers is absolutely necessary, although the latter have shown much better application in the second dig.
