The host Bangladesh have taken the field for the only Test against visiting Zimbabwe in the series. Zimbabwe made 265 runs in the first innings at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur. Nayeem Hasan and Rahi bowled in the first session of the second day. The touring team could not add too many runs on the second day due to the controlled bowling of the Tigers.
Zimbabwe started the second day with 228 runs with four wickets in hand. Abu Zaid Rahi hit the visiting team turning Tiripano only at 08 while the teams’ total collection is 12 for the second day. He also turned Ansley Lavu in the next over at zero. Both Rahi and Nayeem had four wickets next to their names. There was a competition between the two for the first time about who becomes the fiver first.
However, none of the two had won the contest as Taizul Islam got the remaining 2 wickets. Zimbabwe's innings stopped immediately after Chakabva's caught in Nayeem's ball collecting 30 runs personally.
Zimbabwe decided to bat first after winning the toss on the first day. Prince Masvaure and Kevin Kasuza inaugurated the batting for the team but couldn’t collect a single run until seventh over because of tactic bowling of tigers. Then Masvaure opened the scoring with a four in the first ball of the over.
Abu Zaid Rahi brought a breakthrough in the next over. Kevin Kasuza was locked up by Nayeem Hassan for a 2-run in 24 balls. After his departure, captain Craig Ervine began playing with Masvaure in a slowdown mode.
They play defensively without giving any chance to the bowlers of Bangladesh. In the first session, the tourists went to the lunch break with 80 runs for 1 wicket at the end of 30 overs. Masvaure was unbeaten on 45 and captain Craig Ervin was unbeaten on 26 runs.
Masvaure and Ervine continued to play on the bowlers back from the break. Zimbabwe completed the team century in 42.3 overs as Masvaure took a half-century.
Off-spinner Nayeem Hassan hurt when Zimbabwe was establishing control of the match. Nayeem turned Masvaure after a dangerous 118-run lead. Masvaure scored 64 runs in 152 balls.
Nayeem did not let veteran Brendan Taylor stand too far. Taylor scored 10 runs in 11 balls. Nayeem bowled him out soon. Then Ervine stays with Sikandar Raja until the tea break. The duo remained unbeaten on 7 and 60 respectively.
Nayeem turned Sikandar Raja to the Zimbabwe camp shortly after the tea break. Rahi didn’t give the opportunity to Maruma to stay in the wicket in replace of Raja. He scored 7 runs before becoming the second victim of this pacer.
On the other side, Ervine picked up a century off 213 balls. Nayeem stopped him and picked up his fourth wicket. However, he was the second-highest scorer in Zimbabwe's debut. David Hunton played the highest innings in his debut as Test captain. He played an unbeaten 121 against India in 1991.
Regis Chakabva and Donald Tirpano lead the team to the end of the day having unbeaten 09 and 00 runs respectively.
