Bangladesh are 406 for the loss of seven wickets against Zimbabwe on Day 2 of the second Test at Khulna. The hosts lost three wickets in this session including the centurion in the form of star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan who was dismissed for 135.

Beginning the post-lunch session on 316/4, Bangladesh were off to a slow start again in this session. However, Shakib brought up his third ever Test century after four years when he scored his last ton back in 2010 against New Zealand at Hamilton with a score of 100. Unfortunately, Mushfiqur Rahim couldn’t last long enough to support Shakib and was dismissed for a cheap 11 off an unfortunate run out while going for a risky single only to be dismissed by Sikandar Raza.

However, Shakib did not panic and still kept scoring along with Shuvagata Hom, but fell for 135 after he got bowled by Malcolm Waller. Soon after two overs, Hom too followed him back after being dismissed for a cheap 15. Currently, Taijul Islam and Shahadat Hossain are on the crease batting on 21 and 4, respectively. It remains to be seen how the tail-enders perform in the next session. Can they hold on till the end of the day to a respective total for Bangladesh or will they be bowled out?

Brief scores:

Bangladesh 406 for 7 (Shakib Al Hasan 135, Tamim Iqbal 109; T Panyangara 2 for 49) vs Zimbabwe.
