Zimbabwe resume Day Three of the second Test against Bangladesh at Harare at 158 for four on Saturday.
Nasir’s entertaining knock stretched Bangladesh’s first innings to 391 all out in the morning session, before Robiul dismissed Zimbabwe’s openers in the afternoon as the home side slumped to 47 for three at the tea break.
Robiul charged in for 11 overs on the trot to record figures of 2 for 16, as he and his fellow seamers frustrated the Zimbabweans with some disciplined bowling.
Although Robiul was fortunate to have Regis Chakabva given out caught behind when the ball appeared to miss the bat, his dismissal of Vusi Sibanda looked less dubious and he went on to give Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor a proper working over.
Brief Scores: Bangladesh 391 (Shakib Al Hasan 81, Nasir Hossain 77, Mushfiqur Rahim 60; Elton Chigumbura 3 for 75) lead Zimbabwe 158 for 4 (Elton Chigumbura 45*, Brendon Taylor 36; Robiul Islam 2 for 34) by 233 runs.
