Zimbabwe 164 and 121 for 5 (Ervine 49*, Raza 37) trail New Zealand 576 for 6 dec (Taylor 173*, Watling 107, Latham 105) by 291 runsScorecard and ball-by-ball detailsRoss Taylor and BJ Watling took 299 and 172 deliveries respectively to rack up 173* and 107 - their second hundreds against Zimbabwe - and build an advantage New Zealand may have considered unassailable. Zach Duke Jersey . Tim Southee and Trent Boult took four Zimbabwean wickets for 10 runs in the space of 18 balls, and likely ensure the 412-run lead is more than enough.Zimbabwes top order were blown away by swing and teetered on 17 for 4. Given their first-innings collapse, a three-day finish seemed imminent. But Craig Ervine equalled his highest Test score - 49 - and formed partnerships with Sikandar Raza and Graeme Cremer to allow the hosts to live to fight another day.Taking the match into the fourth day was Zimbabwes second small success after they removed nightwatchman Ish Sodhi in the second over of the day. They did not see the back of another New Zealand batsman until 15 minutes after tea, when Watling dragged Raza to deep square leg. By then, the New Zealand wicketkeeper had a century, Taylor had 173* and their partnership - a chanceless stand headlined by crisp cuts, powerful pulls and careful strike rotation - had reached 253.On its own, it was worth 89 runs more than Zimbabwes first-innings total. Combined with the 79-run opening stand, the 156 runs Tom Latham and Kane Williamson added for the second wicket, and other small contributions, it put the match beyond Zimbabwe, who were kept under the Bulawayo sun for 166.5 overs.Their second new ball was under six overs old when the day began and Donald Tiripano and Michael Chinouya started promisingly with it. Both showed marked improvement from their second-day performances and made the batsmen play at more deliveries by tightening their lines. Chinouya reaped some reward when Sodhi played an uncertain drive and edged to substitute wicketkeeper Brian Chari.Sensing an opportunity to get into New Zealands lower order, the pair tried the short ball but without the pace or the discipline to back it up, it was wasted. Too often, they offered their deliveries with width, allowing the batsmen to cut. Other balls were misdirected and invited the pull, a shot both Taylor and Watling played comfortably. Their ease against the short ball only highlighted Zimbabwes deficiencies when faced with the same.With the seamers struggling, Graeme Cremer brought himself on. He did not manage as much of the turn and bounce he got on the second day, but Taylor and Watling were still cautious against him.It was only towards the end of the first session, when heavy legs caused Zimbabwes fielders to make several fumbles, that the pair upped the scoring rate. Taylor took on the more aggressive role and showed his authority against Cremer while Watling hung back and rotated strike. By lunch, the lead was over 250 and the pair well settled.They returned after the break to deal for another careful five overs before opening up. The next 15 overs brought 61 runs at over four runs per over. In that time, Taylor brought up his century with a signature square cut. His second fifty only took him 83 balls, compared to his first for which he faced 108.Watling went into the tea break on 95 and brought up his century four overs later with a top-edge off a pull - the shot he had played so comfortably through his innings. The pair were given some freedom to bat on but managed only one more shot in anger before Watling holed out and Williamson called his men in, leaving Zimbabwe with a tough task to make New Zealand bat again.They decided to take on the challenge head on and played their strongest hand by promoting their most experienced batsman Hamilton Masakadza to open. Brian Chari, who does not keep regularly and spent five sessions behind the stumps doing the job, was given some time to recover but he did not have too long.Masakadza drove the first ball he faced for four but then edged the third, which moved away from him, to first slip to end a disappointing Test for him. Chari was in at No.3 and handled the first five balls he faced before a Boult inswinger snuck through the bat-pad gap and took out his off stump.Chamu Chibhabha also failed to handle Boults movement and poked at one that moved away to give Taylor a second catch, low and to his left. With his next ball, Boult angled it in to Prince Masvaure, who was hit on the pad in front of middle stump.Sikandar Raza sliced the hat-trick ball through the covers for four and settled Zimbabwes nerves somewhat. Raza and Ervine took a totally different approach to what may be expected from a side on the back foot, and played an aggressive range of strokes. They scored at 7.8 runs to the over and swiped their bats at anything, be it full or short. Raza fell on his sword when he top-edged a short ball and walked off before the catch was taken.With news that Regis Chakbva and Sean Williams, neither of whom fielded at all because of illness, will be available to bat on the fourth day, Ervine will be hopeful of reaching a milestone and more, even if in vain.

It was her first big interview for a television station.

He wouldnt answer any of her questions, just asked her repeatedly at which hotel she was staying.She was waiting in a press room to interview a player. He suggested she join the player in the shower and help wash his back.?She was a young newspaper writer. He wrote her a letter threatening her life and the lives of her children, telling her: You stupid b----. Stop writing. Now.These are just a handful of stories my friends and colleagues told me in this weeks Thats What She Said podcast. I didnt have to seek out women with shocking tales of harassment; I already know plenty. And I had my own stories to tell. If you know a woman who works in the sports industry, she probably does, too. Stories of men abusing their power, hoping to take advantage of young girls ambitions. Or men asserting control, working to make women feel unwelcome and unsafe.Most women dont have just one story. There are land mines everywhere, in the form of entitled bosses, handsy athletes, even colleagues who want to protect what they deem a male space. Whether its in the form of Twitter tirades decrying women unfit to host radio shows, or rants about how sports are set to the dial of men, the sports world is one that says to women too many times, in too many ways, Stay out!Progress has been made -- in sports, with women fighting their way into coveted roles as analysts, opinion-givers and hosts -- and in the workplace in general, with more attention being paid to the wage gap and more and more women in executive roles. But theres a fear things might regress after the election of Donald Trump, whose presidential cammpaign was successful despite being plagued by allegations of sexual assault and documented instances of misogynistic language and behavior. Paul Molitor Jersey. In August, when Trump was asked how his daughter, Ivanka, might respond to being sexually harassed, he said, I would like to think she would find another career or find another company if that was the case. Trumps son Eric offered his two cents in a tweet, writing that a strong, powerful woman like Ivanka wouldnt be harassed in the first place.That mindset puts the onus on the victims to end harassment, rather than the perpetrators. Each and every indignity and objectification makes it harder for a woman to work and easier for her male co-workers to view her -- and treat her -- as inferior. Each instance of disrespect and violation of personal space affects how safe a woman feels, how free to do her job.The women I know survived the lewd comments, harassment and unfair stereotypes to find great success, but their strength in the face of such treatment shouldnt be a requirement of the job. Its hard enough just to learn the material, do the research, get the interviews, write the stories, host the shows and break down the issues (all while attempting to meet unrealistic standards of beauty). Rejecting unwanted advances and calling out inappropriate behavior without damaging your chances at a job or risking termination shouldnt be added to the list.But what can be done about a problem so pervasive? An issue so prevalent its become almost normalized? Talk about it. Share our stories. Call out the acts and, whenever possible, call out those responsible. We must continue to work to gain more influence and esteem so that we may be the ones hiring, leading and empowering. We must expose the ugliness of this behavior so there is no doubt as to whats appropriate or allowed.
