Blessing Muzarabani2949443.2413415000
0.5 to Saif Hassan, what a start! Pitches it up, on off. Saif presses forward to defend for the ball angling in. But it holds its line, goes past the outside edge, and knocks off stump back. Big roar from Blessing!. 4/1
4.2 to Najmul Hossain Shanto, third slip grabs! Full on off, and he sticks the bat out to defend. But the natural angle takes it away, and induces the outside edge en route to the debutant at third slip!. 8/2
28.4 to Mushfiqur Rahim, no shot offered and given out! Good length outside off but angling in and he shoulders his arms. Hits him high-ish on the back leg and the umpire is quick to raise the finger! Rahim not wholly convinced, perhaps due to the height, but there's no reviews and he has to go. Muzarabani's third!. 106/4
125.6 to Ebadot Hossain, trapped in front and that's it! Full length ball on off, which slightly moves away after pitching as Ebadot tries to defend from his crease but is beaten on his push. The Bangladesh innings is finally wrapped up, but not before they have posted a massive 468. 468/10
Richard Ngarava2358313.601029117
20.1 to Shadman Islam, edged and taken at first slip! Ngarava bowls this one on a good length just outside off, and the batter remains stuck in his crease while trying to poke at that slightly incoming ball, which was bowled in the off-stump channel. A solid stand is broken, and there'll be a new man in just before lunch. 68/3
Donald Tiripano2355822.521178017
78.1 to Litton Das, heartbreak for Das!! You can stay that he fell into the trap. Short on off and he's dragged the pull straight to fine leg!! Fielder dives and takes a sharp catch. The wait for 100 remains however his innings has dragged the visitors back into contention. 270/7
78.2 to Mehidy Hasan Miraz, two in two!! Trapped in front. Goes full, stump to stump and Miraz fails to get bat on ball.. 270/8
Victor Nyauchi1719225.416514002
29.3 to Shakib Al Hasan, poor shot! Full and wide and Shakib is itching to play a scoring shot. Goes for the square drive but it's taken an edge to the keeper! Shakib walks even before the umpire could raise his finger. 109/5
35.6 to Mominul Haque, this time he's gone! Good length outside off and he opts to cut. But a bit late to the shot and instead of going over point this has gone straight into the hands of gully. An entertaining innings from the captain but his wicket at the stroke of drinks leaves Bangladesh 6 down. 132/6
Dion Myers311304.33112000
Milton Shumba2146413.04908000
123.2 to Taskin Ahmed, bowled him! A mammoth stand ends as Taskin tries to swing that to the on side and misses. Fullish length on off, and Taskin almost went down on his knees to slog that ball but was beaten, as it hit his off stump. 461/9

Taskin Ahmed24104611.911247000
87.2 to R Kaia, outside edge and taken behind. Good length ball pitching in the off-stump channel and Kaia pokes at the ball from within his crease. He gets a faint tickle to the keeper, and Taskin immediately knew he had his man. A wicket for him after long, laborious hours as Zimbabwe begin losing track here. 229/5
Ebadot Hossain2185802.7610510000
Shakib Al Hasan34.5108242.351677200
27.2 to M Shumba, gets into a tangle trying to sweep and he's gone! Shakib drifts this full delivery in from wide of the crease, beats Shumba in the air. It's too full to be playing that as he looks to sweep across the line and is trapped plumb in front. Can't ask for easier decisions than those as an umpire. 61/1
79.6 to D Myers, full, outside leg. Swept and Myers perishes. It was swept hard, in the air, and straight to fine leg who takes a catch above his head. Zimbabwe lose a wicket with the new ball available next over. Nice recovery from Mehidy, to be honest, as he was well inside the boundary line. On another day, it could've gone over his head, but he is a gun fielder and that shone through there. What a time for a new batter to walk in. 225/3
86.2 to T Maruma, goes for the sweep, and is pinned leg before. Yet another Zimbabwe batter falls going for the sweep, as Maruma went down on his knee to try and sweep that behind square but misses this good length ball on middle and off. Replays show the ball would have hit middle and off stump, and he's plumb. 228/4
111.5 to R Ngarava, that's all over. Full outside off, turning in. Sticks the bat to defend, but it takes the outside edge and pouched by first slip after a slight fumble. All out for 276 after losing their last five wickets for eight runs.. 276/10
Mehidy Hasan Miraz3158252.641417100
56.5 to BRM Taylor, And Taylor has surrendered his wicket! Goes full swing while trying to heave that full length ball on middle to the leg side while stretching right forward to the ball, but gets that from an angled bat as the ball balloons to square leg. Bangladesh have a much-awaited breakthrough, after Taylor gives it away following a solid partnership. 176/2
104.2 to T Kaitano, taken down the leg side! Don Bradman used to say 87 is an unlucky number since it's 13 less than 100. Good length on middle, and he flicks this ball right into the keeper's hands down the leg side. A beautiful innings comes to a close. Much to be proud of.. 261/6
106.1 to DT Tiripano, that's plumb! Full on off, skidding through. Defends down the wrong line, ball goes past the inside edge, and hits him right in front of off. 263/7
108.2 to VM Nyauchi, through him! Length ball on off, skidding through. Backs away to clatter it through the off side, but he misses, and that's knocked his off stump back. 263/8
110.3 to B Muzarabani, through him! Beautiful ball. Full outside off and the traditional offbreak goes through him and breaks the stumps. Five-wicket haul. 269/9

30.2 to Saif Hassan, sharp catch at gully! Saif has been slashing at balls outside off, and he won't survive this one off the back foot. Short of a length outside off, misguided cut, and quick reflexes from Myers to his left. That was low about waist height and traveling quickly, and it needed a fair stretch out. Got both hands and held his balance to complete the catch. 88/1

Shakib Al Hasan2594411.761284100
37.2 to T Kaitano, pins him leg before and the wall is broken! Good length ball on off, and that comes on with the arm to hit him on the pad, which was on leg stump. He tried to flick off the back foot but was beaten as there was a hint of a turn away from him after pitching. A solid block is finished, and Bangladesh have an opening late into the third day. 132/3
Mehidy Hasan Miraz30.4106642.151508100
28.2 to BRM Taylor, and he chips this right back to the bowler! Full and tossed up outside off, and Taylor checks his shot last moment to simply lob that back and miss out on a hundred. He's dropped his bat down in agony, and can't believe what he's done. An outstanding counterattacking knock comes to an end. 110/2
57.1 to D Myers, chipped to short midwicket first ball after drinks! Mehidy gives the ball some air and bowls full on off stump, as Myers tries to whip that to the on side but can only use his wrists to drop it in the hands of Shadman placed close. First wicket of the day for Bangladesh, and a set batter departs. 159/4
57.4 to T Maruma, traps him in front third ball! On a good length on off this time, and this one again turns into the batter who tries to defend on off stump as the ball strikes his front pad with the ball lobbing to the man at slip. Mehidy strikes twice inside four balls. 159/5
94.4 to R Ngarava, the middle stump is dislodged and the game is over! This was bowled slower and tossed up on middle and off, as Ngarava went for the heave on the leg side but was beaten by the slowness of the ball. It bounces just enough to clip the top of middle stump, which falls on the ground. 256/10
Taskin Ahmed2448243.4110713001
5.2 to M Shumba, the man just brought in has a catch! Taskin strikes in his first over. Good length ball on off, and this was much straighter. Pitched on middle and off, and angled away from Shumba who seemed to poke at that from within his crease. He gets squared up with the bounce and the movement, and Yasir at third ball - brought in just before this ball - has it easy. 15/1
58.5 to R Kaia, gets him leg before and Kaia has a pair for the match! This was bowled much fuller on middle and jags back in sharply as the batter almost falls over to the off side after missing his flick. Taskin is almost over the moon, as replays show the ball would have hit leg. 160/6
60.1 to RW Chakabva, the stumps are shattered! Fullish ball on middle and off, darts back in after pitching and goes through the defences of Chakabva to uproot the middle stump and dislodge the others. Taskin and Mehidy in a hurry here, and Zimbabwe unwrapping rapidly before lunch. That's four wickets in no time. 164/7
75.3 to VM Nyauchi, dropped? No, he holds on! Short ball, on off and its angling in. Batter backs away but the ball follows him. Tries to fend with the bat in front of his face, but it takes the edge and goes to Shakib at first slip. The ball hits his palm, goes in the air again, but Shakib holds on on the rebound while taking a tumble. 198/8
Ebadot Hossain1123913.54507000
89.1 to DT Tiripano, strikes first ball to get rid of the dogged Tiripano. Pitches this on a good length on off and the ball angles into the batter, who hops in the crease to negate the movement with the ball also keeping low. Gets a faint inside edge behind to the keeper, who dives to his left and nabs the opportunity. 239/9
