Live updates of day four of the first test between the Black Caps and Zimbabwe at the Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo.

A record 253-run sixth-wicket partnership between Ross Taylor and B-J Watling and three wickets in six balls from Trent Boult has New Zealand poised to win the opening test against Zimbabwe in Bulawayo.

Taylor scored 173 not out and Watling made 107 in the visitors' 576 for six declared, their highest total against the hosts.

Zimbabwe were 121 for five in response at stumps on the third day, still needing 291 runs to make New Zealand bat again.
