Harare: Apr 20, 2013

Hammering by a heavy defeat has once again highlighted the lack of progress of Bangladesh, who begin the second and final Test against Zimbabwe on Thursday, looking to prove they can get used to foreign conditions and match their fellow Test strugglers.

Bangladesh came into the series as favourites after improved performances in Sri Lanka. But the Asian minnows were bowled out for 134 and 147 as they lost the first Test to Zimbabwe by 335 runs at Harare Sports Club.

With the second Test being played on the same ground another green-top is expected. Bangladesh will need to show far greater durability against Zimbabwe’s talented but inexperienced pace attack if they are to come away from the series with some dignity.

Bangladesh will also need to find a way to dismiss Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor cheaply, after he became just the third Zimbabwean to score back-to-back centuries in a Test match.

Taylor was dropped once on his way to 171 in the first innings, but played a chanceless knock of 102 not out in the second.

The tourists have been hit with fresh injury worries; fast bowlers Rubel Hossain and Shahadat Hossain both returning home to be replaced by seamer Shafiul Islam and uncapped allrounder Ziaur Rahman.

However opening batsman Tamim Iqbal could return from a broken thumb, while Shakib Al Hasan will be back to full bowling fitness, giving Bangladesh’s selectors the option to pick an extra seamer.

Zimbabwe, on the other hand, could field the same side that turned out in the first Test and will be buoyed by the opportunity to win a series by more than one match for just the second time in their history.

Teams:

Zimbabwe: V Sibanda, RW Chakabva, H Masakadza, BRM Taylor (c), MN Waller, R Mutumbami (wk), E Chigumbura, AG Cremer, KO Meth, KM Jarvis, SW Masakadza

Bangladesh: Jahurul Islam, Tamim Iqbal, Mohammad Ashraful, Shakib Al Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim (c&wk), Mominul Haque, Nasir Hossain, Sohag Gazi, Ziaur Rahman, Sajidul Islam, Robiul Islam
