Bangladesh in the driving seat after day two

Skipper Mominul Hauque and Mushfiqur Rahim ended the day at the crease on 79 and 32, respectively. With Mohammed Mithun and Liton Kumar Das still waiting to bat in the first innings, the Tigers will be looking to set up a big lead after a dismal run of form in recent Tests

Bangladesh finished day two of the one-off Test match against Zimbabwe in a strong position, scuttling out the visitors for 265 before reducing the deficit to only 25 runs at Mirpur’s Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium Sunday.

The Tigers reached stumps with 240 runs on the board and seven wickets in hand.

Skipper Mominul Hauque and Mushfiqur Rahim ended the day at the crease on 79 and 32, respectively. With Mohammed Mithun and Liton Kumar Das still waiting to bat in the first innings, the Tigers will be looking to set up a big lead after a dismal run of form in recent Tests. 

Mominul struck nine boundaries in his well-constructed innings while Mushfiq hit six as the pair formed a 68 run stand.

Mominul Hauque plays a shot during day two Md Manik/Dhaka TribuneBangladesh lost opener Saif Hasan early when the rookie was caught behind after hitting two boundaries with 18 runs on the board. Other opener Tamim Iqbal played a decent innings of 41 off 89 deliveries, but fell short of his half-century when he nicked a ball to the wicket-keeper as well.

Tamim had formed a 78-run partnership with number three batsman Nazmul Hossin Shanto.

Shanto batted well and scored 71, but he also failed to get a big score by giving the keeper a catch. Shanto and Mominul had formed a 76-run partnership before the former’s dismissal.

Earlier, Zimbabwe started the second day on 228 for 6 and added 37 more runs before losing all of their remaining wickets.

Abu Jayed Rahi bowls during day two Md Manik/Dhaka TribuneBangladesh spinner Nayeem Hasan picked four wickets and conceded 70 runs in his 38 overs, while pacer Abu Jayed Rahi also took four wickets and conceded 71 runs in 24 overs.

Both Nayeem and Abu Jayed were on verge of five-fors when the last Zimbabwe pair was batting, but Taijul completed a brace with the final wicket of the Zimbabwe innings.

Zimbabwe skipper Craig Ervine was the top scorer for his side in the first innings with 107 runs.
