Bangladesh will face Zimbabwe on Day 4 of the 3rd Test at Chittagong on Saturday. It has been a high scoring game so far with players from both teams scoring freely. The match looks headed for a draw, but as they say, anything can happen in a game of cricket.

Bangladesh trotted to 23 for no loss in there second innings played on the third day of the last Test match against Zimbabwe on Friday. Imrul Kayes and Tamim Iqbal came out to bat with nine overs left in the day. Kayes hit two boundaries for Bangladesh before umpires called off the play on the third day. These both batsmen scored individual centuries in there previous innings and also stitched a record 224-run opening stand which took Bangladesh to 503 in the first innings.

Earlier, Zimbabwe was bundled out for 374 as Jubair Hossain picked up a five-for but gave away 96 runs. The 18-year-old leg-spinner bowled bravely as he flighted the ball often and enticed the batsmen for a slog. Shakib Al Hasan went back with only a single wicket of Richmond Mutumbami. Four Zimbabwe batsmen got half-centuries but neither of them could convert it to a century. But Zimbabwe would still have wished for more taking in consideration the 160-run partnerhsip between Raza and Masakadza.
