Shakib-Al-Hasan got rid of the Zimbabwe opener Regis Chakabva as the hosts reached 36 for one at tea on Day 4 of the second and final Test match against Bangladesh on Sunday.

Zimbabwe need a further 365 runs to win and register a series win over the Asian side.

Vusi Sibanda was batting on 21 off 36 balls, accompanied by Hamilton Masakadza (0 not out) in their second essay.

Bangladesh had earlier declared their second innings at 291 for nine with Mushfiqur Rahim scoring 93 while Nasir Hossain smashing a fluent 67.

Continuing from an overnight score of 163 for five, Bangladesh have added close to 100 runs in the first session with skipper Mushfiqur Rahim leading from the front.

He was dismissed just seven runs short of his century when Vusi Sibanda held onto a stunning catch off Hamilton Masakadza.

Rahim added 84 runs with Nasir Hossain for the sixth wicket. Bangaldesh went in for lunch at 251 for seven with Sohag Gazi and Hossain batting.
