Bangladesh take on Zimbabwe in the second Test in Khulna starting Monday. The hosts pulled off a close three-wicket win in the first match in Dhaka after Taijul Islam recorded the best-ever bowling performance by a Bangladeshi in Tests. Catch live scorecard and ball-by-ball updates of the match.

According to AFP, captain Mushfiqur Rahim said, “The last Test ended in three days, but if we expect the same to happen here it will be a mistake. I think they (Zimbabwe) are better prepared. In the last Test, they had only 101 runs to defend and yet gave us a good fight.” Catch the live blog of the match.

He continued saying, “In a Test match, one usually sees only a couple of soft dismissals, but in our case there were about five or six in Dhaka which is alarming. We need to concentrate better and focus on our batting in a way that if someone gets a 50, he should go on to make another 50. The team benefits when a batsman gets a 100.”
