Bangladesh reached a total of 79 for the loss of two wickets against Zimbabwe at tea on the fourth day of the 2nd Test at Khulna. Both openers, Tamim Iqbal and Shamsur Rahman were dismissed for 20 and 23 respectively.

Bangladesh started the post-lunch session on two for no loss after dismissing Zimbabwe for 368 just before the lunch break. Both openers were going strong with Tamim looking in a good flow as he hit a few boundaries. However, at the score of 28, Tamim was dismissed off Tinashe Panyangara while going for a big shot and handing it back to the bowler as he departed for just 20.

Out came then Mominul Haque, who put up a 47-run partnership with opener, Rahman. Although, the partnership was finally broken right before the tea break and at a point where they were looking strong when Rahman edged the ball off Malcolm Waller to Brendan Taylor. The appeal was initially turned down, but the review by Zimbabwe came to their rescue and Bangladesh were down to two at the score of 75. Currently Mahmudullah and Haque are on the crease batting on two and 27 respectively.

Brief scores: Bangladesh 79/2 and 433 (Mominul Haque 27*, Shamsur Rahman 23; M Waller 1 for 12) lead Zimbabwe 368 (Hamilton Masakadza 158, Regis Chakabva 101; S Hasan 5 for 80) by 67 runs.
