Excellent day for Bangladesh in the end. They were put into bat by Zimbabwe and has managed to post a decent total at the end of day one. Tamim gave them a good start, but they lost 4 wickets quickly. Shakib and Rahim revived them a bit with a 100+ stand and once again Shakib threw his wicket away after hitting a fifty. Zimbabwe were bad in the field as they dropped many catches and that would cost them dearly if they don't manage to bat well.
Shakib started off smoothly with three boundaries in his first 15 balls, but soon calmed down and supported Mushfiqur's recovery act. He reached his fifty off 84 balls, before launching into a bit of a four-hitting spree. But he fell in that trap, running out to Chigumbura late in the day to fall for 81 off 118 balls. He has now given away three opportunities to score Test hundreds in his last four Tests.
Mushfiqur, too, batted well, but just when he needed to see off the day, he fell leg-before to Jarvis around 20 minutes before stumps were drawn. He made 60 off 165 balls, an innings which was exactly what many before him could have done.
Tamim Iqbal's return to the line-up was important to the top-order but he was among the six batsmen to succumb to impatience rather than the bowling. He started off nervously before settling down and looking confident as he struck six boundaries. After spending some minutes on 49, the imminence of the landmark got the better of him. He rushed towards the non-striker's end, only to see Masakadza's direct hit catching him short.
