BAN vs ZIM Live Scorecard - Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd Test Day 3 Live Score and Ball by ball Commentary of Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe 2013 on April 27, played at Harare Sports Club.
Robiul Islam's tireless spells of fast bowling and an unusually loose stroke from Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor allowed Bangladesh to close day two of the second Test with a hard-earned advantage in Harare.
Robiul charged in for 19 overs in a little more than two sessions, dismissing Zimbabwe's openers and applying pressure to the middle order before a late flurry of runs saw the hosts close on 4 for 158.
That left them 233 runs short of Bangladesh's 391 all out, in which Nasir Hossain's aggressive 77 had stretched the final total on Friday morning.
Taylor was the lynchpin of Zimbabwe's batting during their handsome victory in the first Test, and so his dismissal for 36 in the final session was a clear triumph for Bangladesh.
The 27-year-old had ridden out a prolonged spell of short bowling from Robiul and eaten up 80 deliveries to score his first 16 runs, but his patience finally broke when he holed out to deep midwicket off the bowling of off spinner Sohag Gazi.
Malcolm Waller had been Taylor's companion in a watchful 52-run partnership that rebuilt the innings from the troubled position of 3 for 45, and went to stumps on 30 not out from 112 deliveries.
He was joined for the last 17 overs of the day by Elton Chigumbura, who threw caution to the wind and survived a dropped catch on his way to an unbeaten 45 from just 49 balls that gave Zimbabwe a much-needed lift.
