Bangladesh opener, Tamim Iqbal smashed his fifth ever Test century in the international cricket against Zimbabwe on the second day of the 2nd Test at Khulna. His century came off 312 balls that included nine boundaries was a pretty long innings and it has helped Bangladesh stay in control of the first innings. His last century came way back in 2010 when he scored 108 against England at Manchester.

Bangladesh are currently 267 for the loss of three wickets. However, they haven’t lost any wicket for today. Iqbal alongwith all-rounder, Shakib Al Hasan, who too scored his half-century off 71 balls including five boundaries and a six, have made sure that Bangladesh do not suffer any setback and post a big total.
