Harare: Apr 28, 2013

Bangladesh will start Day four as favourites against Zimbabwe at Harare. Three quick wickets at the start of the second innings kept Zimbabwe’s bid for a series victory over Bangladesh alive after the home side had conceded a first innings deficit of over a hundred on day three of the second Test on Saturday.

Robiul Islam had become the first seamer to take five wickets in consecutive innings for Bangladesh as Zimbabwe were bowled out for 282 – a first-innings deficit of 109.

However Shingirai Masakadza and Kyle Jarvis benefitted from some questionable umpiring as they reduced Bangladesh to 18 for three before Mominul Haque and Shakib Al Hasan steadied the innings to take the tourists to tea on 43 for three.

Masakadza had Tamim Iqbal and Jahurul Islam caught behind in consecutive overs, although only the latter appeared to edge the ball through to the wicketkeeper.

Jarvis then trapped Mohammad Ashraful lbw,television replays confirmed that the ball would have missed leg-stump. With the Umpire’s Decision Review System not in place due to the prohibitive costs, the umpires’ decisions were final.

With an overall lead of 152, Bangladesh retained the upper hand thanks largely to Robiul’s herculean efforts with the ball in the first innings.

Having taken 6 for 71 in the second innings of the first Test, Robiul charged in for 33 overs to claim figures of 5 for 85 in the first innings of the second.

His efforts outshone Elton Chigumbura’s highest Test score of 86, which came in an impressive counter-attack that included a brisk 85-run partnership with Richmond Mutumbami, who scored 42.

Mutumbami was trapped lbw by Robiul after padding up to a straight delivery, while Chigumbura was bowled by the paceman on the stroke of lunch.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 391 and 163 for 5 (Shakib Al Hasan 59, Mushfiqur Rahim 50*; Shingi Masakadza 3 for 33) lead Zimbabwe 282 (Elton Chigumbura 86, Richmond Mutumbami 42; Robiul Islam 5 for 85) by 272 runs.
