Bangladesh and Zimbabwe clash on the first day of the second Test at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium on Monday. Bangladesh are currently leading the series 1-0 after winning the first Test at Dhaka by a margin of three wickets. Catch live scorecard and ball-by-ball updates of the match.

The hosts have the lead in the three-match series following a tense three-wicket win in the opening Test in Dhaka when they struggled to surpass a modest target of 101 on the spin-friendly wicket.

The win at Dhaka was only the fifth win in 86 matches for Bangladesh since earning Test status in 2000 and the second on home soil after the 226-run win against the same opponents in Chittagong in 2005. Bangladesh’s two series victories so far were the 1-0 win against Zimbabwe at home in 2005 and a 2-0 success over a boycott-hit West Indies in the Caribbean in 2009.
