    7.4 Shakib also strikes, caught at short leg! Raza leaned forward to defend the length delivery, and the ball went off the bat and pad for a simple catch to Mominul at short leg. Raza has a word with Masakadza before walking off 13/2
    4.6 Taijul strikes, he takes a return catch! It was flighted on leg with the angle, Chari made some room and merely pushed it back to the bowler's right. Taijul took a step and grabbed it with both hands 11/1
    44.2 Shakib strikes again - he gets the big wicket of Mount Masakadza! The batsman went back in the crease to defend the ball which bounced extra and took the edge of the shoulder of the bat for an easy catch for silly point. Shakib pumps the air! 137/6
    9.6 Shakib strikes in his first over after lunch, he's got Taylor! It was sliding towards the leg side after pitching on middle, Taylor went back to defend it and the ball lobbed off the pad after a thick inside edge for an easy catch for backward short leg 15/3
    33.5 Jubair gets a wicket now! It was a googly around leg stump, Chakabva leaned forward to defend, the ball turned in to go through the gate after an inside edge and lobbed off the pad towards slip, where Mahmudullah dives to his right to complete the catch 85/4
    39.6 appeal for stumping as Ervine came down the track to push at it and failed to connect. He pushed his back foot back in the crease but it looks like Mushfiqur has whipped the bails off by then. His foot seems to be on the line when the bails are taken off. Waiting for the third umpire's decision and he says OUT and that will be tea 117/5
    46.3 another one for Shakib, this one had extra bounce as the ball flew to first slip off the thumb! The players are appealing, Aleem Dar hasn't given it out but the batsman has walked. It was angled in around the leg stump, Chigumbura went on the back foot to defend and the ball took off to deflect off the thumb. Mushfiqur wanted to review it but the umpire gestures saying the batsman has walked 142/8
    45.4 oh that one didn't rise at all and bounced twice before hitting off stump! It pitched on off stump, Waller went back to push it on off but the ball didn't rise and landed a second time in the crease. Unfortunate dismissal for Waller 142/7
    not out
    48.4 he gets it, he's taken his 10th wicket! M'shangwe poked at the turning ball outside off and got a thin edge before it was pouched by Mushfiqur and they all celebrate 142/9
    51.1 struck on the back foot, he's been given out! Chatara went on the back foot to punch it, he missed it and was struck a bit outside off but he doesn't review it so Bangladesh have won by 162 runs. Celebrations all around the pitch as Mushfiqur plucks the stumps out to celebrate, high fives all around and the crowd also erupts. Mushfiqur swung a stump around in his right hand and it injured one of his team-mates under a helmet. Looks like Mominul, but can't confirm. Mushfiqur checks if he is ok and they start celebrating again! 151/10

  • Malcolm Waller reported for suspect action

  • Bangladesh's battle against Test stagnation

  • Khulna climbs aboard the party train

    Given the mutual dependence between Bangladesh and Shakib Al Hasan, perhaps it was only fitting that the allrounder chose to underline his return to the side with a match-winning performance in Khulna

  • Shakib joins Imran, Botham

    Stats highlights from the second Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe at Khulna, where Shakib Al Hasan grabs all the honours

  • Loss a 'tough pill to swallow' - Taylor

    After a 162-run loss to Bangladesh in the second Test in Khulna that pushed Zimbabwe to the bottom of the Test rankings, captain Brendan Taylor said the collapse on the last day was a hard one to swallow
