Skipper Mominul Haque and Nazmul Hossain Shanto's fifty kept Bangladesh ahead in the one-off test against Zimbabwe as 2nd day play stumps at Mirpur Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium today.
Bangladesh starts their 1st innings in reply to Zimbabwe's 265 and finished the day 240/3, trail by only 25 runs with 7 wickets in hand. Skipper Mominul Haque 79 and Mushfiqur Rahim 32 were in the batting.
After bowling out Zimbabwe, Bangladesh made a shaky start to their innings, having lost opener Saif Hasan cheaply for 8. Saif indicated a good day for him with a picture-perfect straight drive but was tamed by a Victor Nyachu-delivery.
Tamim Iqbal and Shanto added 78-run for the second wickets stand in rapid fashion before Donald Tiripano got the better of the former.
Tamim struck seven fours in his 89 ball-41. But before being dismissed, he completed 13000 runs in International cricket across the format.
Mominul and Shanto made 76 runs in the 3rd wicket stand. Before being dismissed by Tshuma, Shanto made his maiden fifty, 71 off 139 balls with seven fours.
Mominul Haque then finished the day along with Musfiqur Rahim scoring 68 runs in the 4th wicket stand. Mushfiqur Rahim* 32 off 68 and Mominul Haque 79 off 120 were in the batting.
Earlier, Fast bowler Abu Jayed Rahi and off-spinner Nayeem Hasan claimed four wickets apiece as Bangladesh shot Zimbabwe out for 265 in its first innings of the solitary Test at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium on Sunday.
Rahi finished with 4-71, his career-best bowling in an innings so far while Nayeem conceded 70 for his four-for. Leading spinner Taijul Islam who was off-color on day one ended with 2-90.
Resuming the day two on 228-6, Zimbabwe was able to add just 37 runs to their overnight total with Rahi and Taijul taking the rest of the four wickets.
While the lower order batsmen found it tough to deal with Rahi and Taijul in the morning session of day two, Regis Chakabva was the only one who could offer genuine resistance.
Chakabva made 30 with the help of three boundaries before being dismissed by Taijul Islam as the last batsman.
Stand-in captain Craig Ervine was the highest scorer for Zimbabwe with 107 while opener Prince Masvaure made 64.
