Rubel Hossain to Mawoyo, OUT, well, well, that is the unlikeliest of wicket-taking deliveries, but it still gets Bangladesh the breakthrough, Mawoyo has thrown away a debut 50, it was short, wide, nothing delivery actually, he had to reach out a long way to get to it, and cut it straight to sweeper cover who accepted it happily

Rubel Hossain to Sibanda, OUT, oh then, guess what, another short and wide ball that gets one more breakthrough, Sibanda has thrown away a maiden Test hundred, chasing a wide one from the crease with an attempted cut and getting an edge through to Rahim

Zimbabwe 162/2   H Masakadza 32* (61b 5x4)   Rubel Hossain 11.2-0-36-2

Robiul Islam to Masakadza, OUT, Masakadza is gone, finally Bangladesh have broken through, the full length it is, the full length that makes Masakadza drive away from the body for once, and it moves away late to produce the edge that flies to wide slip, who moves to his left to snap the sharp take, first Test wicket for Robiul, he is relieved

H Masakadza c Imrul Kayes b Robiul Islam 104 (306m 244b 8x4 1x6) SR: 42.62

Mahmudullah to Ervine, OUT, Mahmudullah has struck right away, flighted around middle and leg with the angle, and straightens sharply to strike him on the pad, Ervine was pushing forward outside the line, and the umpire sends him back

CR Ervine lbw b Mahmudullah 6 (31m 31b 1x4 0x6) SR: 19.35

Zimbabwe 317/4   BRM Taylor 71* (161b 6x4)   Mahmudullah 1.5-0-8-1

Robiul Islam to Taylor, OUT, Zimbabwe are falling apart here, now Taylor departs, it is the cut that has consumed him, shortish and wide, moving away from him, he reaches out to have a go at it, and gets an edge that a tumbling Rahim does very well to take, Bangladesh are delighted, not much has been going their way till now

BRM Taylor c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Robiul Islam 71 (257m 163b 6x4 0x6) SR: 43.55

Zimbabwe 317/5   T Taibu 0* (1b)   Robiul Islam 28.2-3-97-2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, OUT, the pressure is getting to Zimbabwe, Elton tries to hit his way out of trouble, goes down forcefully on a knee for the sweep from around leg stump, but the top edge loops tamely to deep backward square leg, who seems to have it covered, but it pops out of his hands, he dives forward and scrambles to hold on to the ball eventually as he falls to the ground

E Chigumbura c Shafiul Islam b Shakib Al Hasan 5 (18m 12b 1x4 0x6) SR: 41.66

Zimbabwe 326/6   T Taibu 3* (15b)   Shakib Al Hasan 18.3-2-40-1

Rubel Hossain to Price, OUT, Rubel has struck, caught on the crease to the one coming in off a length with the angle, hit high on the front pad, Bangladesh appeal right away, umpire Dharmasena takes some time before raising the finger, Price is shaking his head as he walks off

RW Price lbw b Rubel Hossain 4 (18m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 25.00

Zimbabwe 344/7   T Taibu 16* (29b 3x4)   Rubel Hossain 25.2-2-80-3

Shakib Al Hasan to Taibu, OUT, Shakib takes the big one, turn and bounce outside off, the length was full enough to draw Taibu forward and Shakib got enough bite out of the surface to make him edge with an open face to slip who gobbled it up

T Taibu c Shahriar Nafees b Shakib Al Hasan 23 (59m 44b 3x4 0x6) SR: 52.27

Zimbabwe 352/8   KM Jarvis 0* (14b)   Shakib Al Hasan 23.1-4-47-2

Shakib Al Hasan to Vitori, OUT, this swing will find the man in the deep, Vitori comes down the track and hits with the turn but straight to deep midwicket

Zimbabwe 368/9   KM Jarvis 4* (24b)   Shakib Al Hasan 26-5-62-3

Abdur Razzak to Mpofu, OUT, Zimbabwe's innings is over, Mpofu gets forward again but this one is fired full down the leg side, Rahim has the bails off quickly even as Mpofu's back foot goes out, easy decision for the third umpire, neat work from Rahim
