Day 2 review: Mushfiqur Rahim became the first wicketkeeper-batsman in history to score two double hundreds in Tests as Bangladesh built a strong total in the second Test against Zimbabwe in Dhaka on Monday.

Mushfiqur hit an unbeaten 219 to help Bangladesh declare their first innings at 522-7 an hour into the final session, before the hosts reduced Zimbabwe to 25 for one at stumps on the second day.

Taijul Islam removed Hamilton Masakadza for 14 after an edge flew to Mehidy Hasan at first slip for Bangladesh’s first breakthrough.

Masakadza was earlier spared when he was dropped at seven by Ariful Haque at first slip off the bowling of debutant Khaled Ahmed.

Brian Chari, 10 not out, and nightwatchman Donald Tiripano (naught) prevented further damage.

Zimbabwe, ahead in the two-match tournament 1-0, needs at least a draw to win their first Test series in seven years.

But it was Mushfiqur who shone, pulling leg-spinner Brendon Mavuta for a single at square leg after the tea break to become the first wicketkeeper-batsman ever to score two double tonnes in Test cricket.

Mushfiqur, who played 421 balls and hit 18 fours and a six, also surpassed Shakib al Hasan to become the highest individual scorer in an innings for Bangladesh in Test cricket.

Skipper Mahmudullah Riyad called the batsmen to the dressing room soon after Mushfiqur nudged Sean Williams for a single to pass Shakib’s 217 against New Zealand at Wellington in 2017.

Mushfiqur shared a record 144-run in their unbroken eighth wicket stand with Mehidy Hasan, after Kyle Jarvis took two scalps in the afternoon session to complete his third five-wicket haul in Tests.

Mushfiqur also had a hand in the previous eighth-wicket record when he added 113 with Naeem Islam against England in 2010.

Jarvis, who claimed three wickets on the opening day, removed Mahmudullah for 36 and Ariful Haque for four but Mushfiqur and Mehidy denied the visitors further success.

Resuming on 303-5, Bangladesh began cautiously on day two, scoring just 22 runs in the first hour before Mushfiqur and Mahmudullah finally opened up.

Mushfiqur, who now has six Test centuries, took 56 balls to score his first boundary in the morning.

Zimbabwe suffered a blow when fast bowler Tendai Chatara was stretchered off after damaging his hamstring while delivering a ball in the morning.

Zimbabwe Cricket said Chatara had suffered a suspected quad muscle strain and was out of the match.

Zimbabwe won the opener by 151 runs in Sylhet, their first Test win in five years.

Commentary (Zimbabwe innings)

Right, then! So that's it from us. This brings an end to Zimbabwe's tour to this part of the subcontinent. The Chevrons might not have won the series, but it's one they will remember for a while. The draw was important to Bangladesh as well, as it doesn't taint their distinguished record at home in recent times. We bid you farewell. In the meantime, you can switch tabs and catch all the action from the ongoing second Test between Sri Lanka and England. Cheers!

Bangladesh skipper, Mahmudullah, reckons his players showed a lot of character in this Test and they stuck to their plans which worked. Adds that everyone is working really hard, even though sometimes it's not visible on the field. Credits Mushfiqur Rahim and Mominul Haque for their superb stand in the first innings and then goes on to praise Mehidy Hasan and Taijul Islam as well for their contributions. On his own resurgent form, he mentions that it was important for him to get that hundred as he feels more confident now. Ends by saying that this win will be a big boost for them before their series against Windies and thanks the crowd for their amazing support.

Man of the Series, Taijul Islam, says he didn't get as much support from the track as he expected, so he had to really fight for all his wickets. On the surface on the final day, he says getting some support from the other end was crucial and he got that from Mehidy Hasan, which really helped.

Man of the Match, Mushfiqur Rahim, says this win was badly needed after the loss in the first Test. Credits Zimbabwe for playing good cricket throughout this series. Praises all his players for playing their part and getting the job done when required. States that they have a good record at home in the last few years and wants to keep that up going forward. Applauds Taijul Islam and Mehidy Hasan for bowling well and adds that they are quality bowlers.

Zimbabwe skipper, Hamilton Masakadza, says he's pretty proud of how his team has played. Adds that his players have showed a lot of character which is quite pleasing to see. Praises Brendan Taylor for his outstanding knocks and also applauds Sean Williams and the seamers for bowling well on spin-friendly conditions. Reckons there are always things to learn and areas to improve, and feels that the batting in their first innings put them back, which cost them the game.

Zimbabwe will be rather disappointed with how they've fared with the bat, more than the ball. The toss did play a big factor, but maybe they could have done a bit more. Kyle Jarvis was the sole warrior with the ball in the first innings as he took a 5-fer, but none of the others could do much else. The away side lost by a huge margin, but if it weren't for Brendan Taylor's twin centuries, it would have been much worse. His stand with Moor in their first innings was the only kind of resistance provided then. The duo stitched another partnership in the final innings, but it wasn't obviously enough. You could very well say if the others had given more support to Taylor, maybe a draw could have been salvaged.

The hosts then backed it up with a good performance with the ball. Taijul bagged another 5-wicket haul with Mehidy scalping three of his own, to restrict Zimbabwe to 304. After that, skipper Mahmudullah's finely-crafted ton and his partnership of 118 with Mithun (who scored a fifty of his own) took the hosts in a commanding position as Bangladesh set a target of 443. Their spinners once again rose to the occasion with Mehidy getting a 5-fer to his name on this occasion.

A thoroughly dominating performance from Bangladesh to level the series. It's been all them from the moment they won the toss and put themselves to bat. They posted 522 on the board in the first innings, courtesy some big knocks and even bigger stands. Haque's superb ton, with Rahim's double ton (which was the first of 2018) followed by their 266-run stand. Then Rahim joined hands with Mehidy and the duo added 144 runs between them to get to that massive score.

83.1 M Hasan to Jarvis, OUT! That's it. BANGLADESH WIN BY 218 RUNS! This is their second-largest victory in Tests in terms of runs. Mehidy Hasan wraps things up with his 5th Test 5-fer. He nicely tosses it up around off, it turns in and Jarvis gets low to play the big slog sweep. He ends up mistiming the lofted shot towards mid on. Ahmed backpedals and takes a safe catch. 224/9

82.6 K Ahmed to Taylor, FOUR! Right in the slot and that nearly goes all the way! Full ball on the stumps, Taylor throws his front leg out of the way and bangs it over mid on. 224/8

82.5 K Ahmed to Jarvis, Fraction straight in line, tucked behind square on the leg side for one. 220/8

82.5 K Ahmed to Jarvis, FIVE WIDES! Banged in short but it's too short, goes over Jarvis and a leaping Rahim as well. Races away to the boundary line behind. 219/8

82.4 K Ahmed to Jarvis, Another one outside off, Jarvis plays and misses again. 214/8

82.3 K Ahmed to Jarvis, Landed on off and it moves away ever so slightly, Jarvis is beaten all ends up as he looks to push inside the line. 214/8

82.2 K Ahmed to Jarvis, Bumper from Ahmed, ducked and evaded by the batsman. 214/8

82.1 K Ahmed to Taylor, Fullish in length, tailing back in on middle and leg, Taylor moves inside the line and works it through mid-wicket for one. 214/8

Khaled Ahmed returns to the attack.

81.6 M Hasan to Jarvis, Full and quicker this time, Jarvis comes ahead and blocks it. 213/8

81.5 M Hasan to Jarvis, Full and flighted on off again, Jarvis drives towards the mid on region. 213/8

81.4 M Hasan to Jarvis, Looped up outside off well wide. Jarvis goes for a wild swipe and misses it completely. 213/8

81.3 M Hasan to K Jarvis, Full and tossed up on off, driven to mid on. No run. 213/8

Kyle Jarvis is the last man in. The reason for that is, Tendai Chatara will not come out to bat due to injury. So this is the last one for Zimbabwe.

81.2 M Hasan to Mavuta, OUT! Caught by Taijul at square leg ! Tossed up on middle, Mavuta can't resist and goes for a slog. It hits the top edge and goes a mile in the air. Taijul has enough time to come under and position himself well before taking an easy catch. No intention to block at all. 213/8

81.1 M Hasan to Taylor, Full and tossed up on leg stump, driven down to long on for a single. 213/7

80.6 T Islam to B Mavuta, Coming in with the angle on off, takes the inside edge and thuds into Mavuta's pads. 212/7

80.5 T Islam to Taylor, 6th Test ton for Brendan Taylor! His second of this game. Equals Andy Flower for the most hundreds in international cricket for Zimbabwe. Superb batting from the maestro. He flicks this in front of square leg and the moment he realizes there's a run on, he lets out a big scream and celebrates as he jogs across. Zimbabwe might be losing this game, but this is a well-deserved consolation for him and the visiting side. Twin hundreds, first time a Zimbabwean has done it away from home. Phenomenal batting display from Brendan Taylor. 212/7

80.4 T Islam to Taylor, Good batting, this. Finds the gap in the mid-wicket region with a nice flick. Two more runs taken and he moves to 99 with that. 211/7

80.3 T Islam to Taylor, The batsman has flicked the ball off his pads. Two runs added to the total. 209/7

80.2 T Islam to Taylor, Full on the stumps, blocked. 207/7

80.1 T Islam to Taylor, FOUR! Goes with the spin on this occasion. Takes the aerial route and gets the desired result. Taylor lofts it cleanly over covers for a boundary. 207/7

The new ball is taken as soon as it becomes available.

79.6 M Hasan to Mavuta, Waits for the ball to come to him before backing away and patting it away to point with an open face. 203/7

79.5 M Hasan to Mavuta, Full outside off, pushed away in front of covers. 203/7

79.4 M Hasan to Mavuta, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 203/7

79.3 M Hasan to Mavuta, Plays for the turn when there is none. Outside off, Mavuta is beaten past the outside edge. 203/7

79.2 M Hasan to Mavuta, Almost went right through. Tossed up outside off, turns it off the rough, Mavuta comes forward to defend but the ball takes the inside edge back onto his pads and rolls inches wide of the leg stump. 203/7

79.1 M Hasan to Mavuta, Turning in from around off, kept out from within the crease. 203/7

78.6 T Islam to Taylor, Fires it up there, Brendan Taylor stays right behind the line and blocks it out. No single taken, surprisingly. 203/7

78.5 T Islam to Taylor, Full on the stumps, defended right under his nose. 203/7

78.4 T Islam to Taylor, Sliding down the leg side, an attempted flick shot fails to connect. 203/7

78.3 T Islam to Taylor, Slower through the air, on off stump, kept out without much trouble. 203/7

78.2 T Islam to Taylor, Spinning away from around off, pushed off the back foot on the off side. 203/7

78.1 T Islam to Taylor, Moves into the 90s with this. Taylor gets forward and across before paddling it fine down the leg side for a couple of runs. 203/7

77.6 M Hasan to Mavuta, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 201/7

77.5 M Hasan to Mavuta, Goes with the spin as he turns it away on the leg side for no run. 201/7

77.4 M Hasan to Mavuta, Straighter one and full outside off, Mavuta is well forward in defense. 201/7

Drinks are on the field. Zimbabwe are on the verge of a loss. Taylor is holding up one end, but is running out of partners. The Bangladesh spinners have once again done the trick for their side. Only a matter of time now. Anyway, Brandon Mavuta is the next batsman in.

77.3 M Hasan to D Tiripano, OUT! There's the unpredictable nature of the surface. This one just bites off the surface, comes in with extra bounce. Tiripano goes deep inside the crease but is caught by surprise due to the bounce. It goes off his glove and into Liton Das' hands at short leg. Brendan Taylor must be regretting his decision to take a single on the very first ball. 201/7

77.2 M Hasan to Tiripano, Landed around leg and it spin in, Donald offers no shot. It goes off his pad into the hands of leg slip. 201/6

77.1 M Hasan to Taylor, Spinning on middle and leg, turned behind square leg. Taylor takes a single off the very first ball. 201/6

76.6 T Islam to Tiripano, Short and wide outside off, cut away square to point. 200/6

76.5 T Islam to Tiripano, Beaten! Taijul lands this around off and it spins away, Tiripano goes back to play at it but is beaten past the outside edge. 200/6

76.4 T Islam to Tiripano, Touch short and around off, another defensive shot presented. 200/6

76.3 T Islam to Taylor, Goes against the turn as he flicks it through mid-wicket. A run is taken. 200/6

76.2 T Islam to Taylor, Fuller on the stumps, guarded out from inside the crease. 199/6

76.1 T Islam to Taylor, What are you doing, Brendan? Could have been another run out. He turns this to square leg and takes off. Rahim chases after the ball, gets to it quickly which forces the batsmen to abort. Just in time. 199/6

75.6 M Hasan to Tiripano, On leg stump, padded away to end the over. 199/6

75.5 M Hasan to Tiripano, Blocks it down with soft hands in front of mid-wicket for nothing. 199/6

75.4 M Hasan to Tiripano, Skidding off the surface, blocked. 199/6

75.3 M Hasan to Tiripano, Looped up on middle and leg, Donald comes forward to defend but is caught on the pads. 199/6

Donald Tiripano is the next batsman in.

75.2 M Hasan to Chakabva, OUT! He is gone. Oh, dear. A rather suicidal run out. The call was Brendan Taylor's. He works this in front of square leg and both batsmen take off after Taylor's call. Haque from mid-wicket runs to his right, gets to the ball and fires it to Rahim. He takes the ball, whips the bails off as Regis dives in. It's taken upstairs and the replays show he's short, not even in the frame. 199/6

Referral for a run out. Looks like Chakabva is gone. Doesn't look good for him.

75.1 M Hasan to Taylor, Pitching outside leg, turning down, Brendan pads it away. 199/5

74.6 T Islam to Chakabva, Rock solid in defense. It's kept out well from the front foot. 199/5

74.5 T Islam to Chakabva, Works this off the inner half past the right of the short leg fielder. 199/5

74.4 T Islam to Chakabva, Chakabva has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 199/5

74.3 T Islam to Chakabva, Once again Regis presents a straight bat in response. 199/5

74.2 T Islam to Chakabva, Sliding in from around off, met with the full face of the bat. 199/5

74.1 T Islam to B Taylor, Good shot. Short ball, coming in from around the wicket, Taylor whips this through the big gap in the mid-wicket area. Might not go all the way, but it's enough to fetch him three good runs. 199/5

73.6 M Hasan to Chakabva, Down the leg side, no shot offered. 196/5

73.5 M Hasan to Taylor, Short ball angling across, pulled hard through square leg for one. 196/5

73.4 M Hasan to Taylor, Big shout from Mushfiqur Rahim for a caught behind, nothing from the umpire though. No review taken either, good call this time. It spins in on leg, keeps going down, Taylor looks to flick but it brushes his pads and goes into the keeper's gloves. 195/5

73.3 M Hasan to Taylor, FOUR! Better. More power, better timing and the placement is perfect. Brendan Taylor kneels down and sweeps it through backward square leg for a boundary. 195/5

73.2 M Hasan to Taylor, Taylor gets low, takes it on the full and sweeps it past short leg for a couple of runs. 191/5

73.1 M Hasan to Taylor, Quicker delivery on the leg stump line, worked in front of short leg. 189/5

72.6 T Islam to Chakabva, Worked away behind square leg and two runs are added to the total. 189/5

72.5 T Islam to Taylor, Ooooooo! That was mighty close. Well played in the end, but boy! Wow. Taijul puts some pace on this, it angles it on leg and skids off the surface too. Taylor just about flicks it fine down the leg side for a single. 187/5

72.4 T Islam to Taylor, Brendan has punched the ball off the back foot. 186/5

72.3 T Islam to Taylor, Quick and flat, close to off, Taylor keeps it out from the back foot. 186/5

72.2 T Islam to Taylor, The batsman has played that off the front foot and into the ground. 186/5

72.1 T Islam to Taylor, Fullish in length on middle and off, pushed back down the track. 186/5

Change of ends for Taijul Islam.

71.6 M Hasan to Chakabva, Attacks the stumps, Chakabva blocks by pressing forward. 186/5

Regis Chakabva to bat next.

71.5 M Hasan to Moor, OUT! Moor is out of here. Mehidy strikes on his return to the attack. Bowls it slower through the air, full on the stumps, PJ Moor strides forward to defend. It spins in and takes the inner portion, before flying to Kayes at short leg. Initially, he fumbles, but manages to stick it near his chest. Useful partnership of 66 comes to an end and Zimbabwe are in trouble now. 186/5

71.4 M Hasan to Taylor, Closes the face and turns it through mid-wicket for one. 186/4

71.3 M Hasan to Taylor, Slower through the air, around off, kept out off the front foot. 185/4

71.2 M Hasan to Taylor, Full on the stumps, blocked. 185/4

71.1 M Hasan to Taylor, Appeal for a catch but it's turned down. Brendan Taylor doesn't even bother with any appeal. He knows he's safe. Spinning in on leg, it goes off the pads and into Mahmudullah's hands at leg slip. No bat involved. 185/4

Mehidy Hasan is back on.

70.6 M Haque to Taylor, Flicked away through the mid-wicket region for a single. 185/4

70.5 M Haque to Taylor, Defended off the front foot by the batsman presenting the full face of the bat. 184/4

70.4 M Haque to B Taylor, Another edge and Taylor is safe. It spins away, takes the outside edge of his hanging bat and goes past the diving slip fielder. A brace taken. 184/4

70.3 M Haque to Taylor, FOUR! A juicy full toss on this occasion and the result is the same. Brendan Taylor smashes it over mid on and finds the fence again. 182/4

70.2 Haque to Taylor, FOUR! Tossed up in line of the stumps, Taylor lofts it straight back over the bowler's head for a boundary. 178/4

70.1 M Haque to Taylor, Flat, short and Taylor goes back to keep it out. 174/4

69.6 T Islam to Moor, Edged but safe! Slowed it up for the first time, some drift, some more turn and it almost got Moor. On off, it turns away, Peter plays away from the body and gets an edge past the slip fielder. Two runs result. 174/4

69.5 T Islam to Moor, Darted in once more, Moor drives straight to the extra cover fielder. 172/4

69.4 T Islam to P Moor, Taijul is bowling too fast. Needs to slow things up. It's driven to mid off. 172/4

68.6 M Haque to B Taylor, Leans ahead and knocks this towards mid off. 172/4

68.5 M Haque to Taylor, FOUR! That is a really good shot. Full toss which is rightly punished. Brendan Taylor takes a step out of the crease and clears mid on with a lovely swing. Boundary results. With this, the 50-run stand is also up. 172/4

68.4 M Haque to Moor, Knocks this down the ground, towards long off, for another one. 168/4

68.3 M Haque to Taylor, Angling in on middle and leg, the arm ball, nudged in front of square leg for a single. 167/4

66.3 K Ahmed to Taylor, Angling back in from middle and off, closes the face and works it in front of mid-wicket. 162/4

Welcome back. The 2nd session is just about to begin with the players renergizing themselves with a meal and a small break. Let's hope for a good battle between bat and ball in the next couple of hours or so!

... Day 5, Session 2 ...

An engrossing session of play that could be called as either team's session. One more wicket and the hosts would've been really happy. Taylor looks quite comfortable at the crease while playing the spinners even though his partners are having problems facing the same. The post-Lunch session has been the best for batting over the past 4 days and if Zimbabwe manage to be patient in their approach and bat to the merit of the ball, there don't seem to be many demons on the pitch that can cause issues. Bangladesh, on the other hand, will be looking to knock out Taylor somehow as that is the opening that will almost lead them to victory. Will the visitors bat well and take the game into the final session or will Bangladesh quickly wrap things up? Join us in a bit for the 2nd session of Day 5!

60.6 Islam to Moor, The last ball before the break is quicker and on the pads, Moor misses it and gets rapped on the pads. The Bangladeshis appeal in vain as the ball was pitched well outside leg stump. LUNCH ON DAY 5! 161/4

60.5 T Islam to Moor, Over the wicket this time, Moor defends it towards the short fine leg fielder with soft hands. 161/4

60.4 T Islam to Moor, Flighted and full outside off, Moor comes ahead and smothers the spin and plays it into the ground. 161/4

60.3 T Islam to Taylor, Shorter and quicker outside off, Taylor guides it towards third man for another single. 161/4

60.2 T Islam to Moor, Flatter ball angling in, Moor plays it towards mid-wicket off the back foot for a single. 160/4

60.1 T Islam to Taylor, Full and on the pads, Taylor pushes it towards deep square leg for a single. 159/4

59.6 M Hasan to Moor, The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery. 158/4

50.3 K Ahmed to Taylor, Just ahead of a length, close to off, blocked by coming half forward. 128/4

Trying to do a little postmortem of Sikandar Raza's wicket. In the first innings, he was bowled to a similar delivery by Taijul which was served from 'round the wicket. That time, he wasn't too forward and clearly didn't pick the variation. This time around, although he came forward, once again didn't read the same delivery. Could have played it with a straight bat by lunging forward but decided to hit his way out. Not the best option against an accurate bowler.

47.6 Islam to Raza, OUT! GONE! Taijul picks up his second of the innings, his 18th of the series, making it the best outing for him in a Test series. Sikandar Raza departs. The bowler comes from around the wicket and loops it up on the stumps. There is some turn away as Raza looks to whip this away through mid-wicket. Is a bit early into the shot and he mistimes it to the left of the bowler. Taijul gets low and takes a sharp catch. Zimbabwe sink a bit deeper. 120/4

47.5 T Islam to Raza, Flatter again and on off, Raza defends on the front foot. 120/3

47.4 T Islam to Raza, Very wide outside off, Raza just lets it go. 120/3

46.5 K Ahmed to S Raza, FOUR! Shot! No stopping this one. Raza stands tall inside the crease, fetches a short ball from outside off and pulls it with authority in front of square leg for a cracking boundary. This shot will give a lot of confidence to Raza. 119/3

46.2 K Ahmed to S Raza, Chance of a run out missed! Good reaction shown by the short leg fielder. A delivery which has been angled into the batsman from 'round the wicket. Raza gets on the front foot to defend but it takes the inside edge and goes off his pads to Mominul on a bounce. Raza has come out in the process and sensing that, Haque has an immediate shy at the striker's end. Misses. Could have been curtains for Raza had he found the stumps. 113/3

46.1 K Ahmed to Raza, Good ball! Khaled is getting good pace here and hurried Raza with a length delivery on off stump. Raza defends it somehow. 113/3

45.6 T Islam to Raza, Full toss on off stump, Raza plays it away towards mid-wicket for a single. 113/3

44.6 K Ahmed to Taylor, Length ball outside off, no need to play this one. 108/3

44.5 Ahmed to Taylor, Not out! Review lost by Bangladesh. A very poor review all things considered since it looked to be missing leg stump to the naked eye. The ball was full and angling down the leg side, hits Taylor on his pads as he was looking to flick it towards square leg. Looked as if the bowler asked his captain to take the review. Not a good call. 108/3

Huge shout for an lbw! Not given. Seems to be going down leg. But Bangladesh have decided to review it. Let's find out...

44.4 K Ahmed to Taylor, Good length and outside off, the batsman shoulders his arms to this one. 108/3

41.3 T Islam to Raza, Another one fired outside off again, Raza has nothing to do with it. 104/3

41.2 T Islam to Raza, Spinning away from around off, nice loop on it, left alone. 104/3

41.1 T Islam to Raza, Almost. Quick, flat and skidding onto the stumps, Raza is almost done in by the pace. Does just enough to bring his bat down and get an inside edge onto his pads. 104/3

40.6 M Rahman to Taylor, WOAH! Fizz comes around the wicket and drops it slightly short of a length outside off. The ball rares up from nowhere and is in front of Taylor's face as it passes him. He does well to get out of the way. Could've easily got the glove and lobbed up. 104/3

38.1 M Rahman to Williams, Bowls it way wide outside off, Williams allows it through to the keeper. 99/2

Field placement for this over - Two gully fielders, a short mid-wicket fielder and a short cover fielder. So, the line is going to be outside off and he will be looking to bring it in from that angle.

37.6 T Islam to B Taylor, Really good looking drive again in the gap between cover and mid off. The ball doesn't reach the boundary as the fielder at mid off chases it all the way till the rope and shows off his footwork to save a couple of runs for his team. 99/2

We are ready to get underway. Big day for both teams. Brendan Taylor and Sean Williams walk out to continue from Day 4. A lot rests on this pair if Zimbabwe are to get anything from this game. Mustafizur Rahman to take the ball first up on this final day.

Pitch Report - Tino Mawoyo out in the middle says the ball has really started to turn and bounce and the Zimbabwean batsmen had a hard time batting towards the end of Day 4. Adds that the wicket is fresh, there's a bit of dampness from the covers and it won't turn as much in the morning. Continues saying that there's going to be uneven bounce, so it will be difficult for the visitors' batsmen. Ends by saying that Brendan Taylor will be the key and that the others will have to support him well.

Looking forward to today, we can expect most of the overs to be bowled by Bangladesh's wrecker-in-chief this series, Taijul Islam. The pitch has started to play tricks and it should be a very difficult task for the visiting batsmen to survive the trial of spin from Taijul, Mehidy and Mahmudullah (if needed). As for Zimbabwe, Taylor will hold the key along with Williams, Moor and Raza, who should give him support if they want to win their third-ever away Test series. Will the hosts win the match and share the trophy or will Zimbabwe hang on for a draw? We'll soon find out.

Hello and welcome to Day 5 of the 2nd Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe, also the last day of the long tour! The hosts are currently trailing 0-1 in the Test series but are in prime position to share the trophy by winning today. Day 4 saw Bangladesh batting for the second time in this Test, they piled up 224 runs in the innings courtesy a century from their skipper, Mahmudullah, and made sure that a Zimbabwe victory is more or less off the cards. The home side even picked up a couple of Zimbabwean wickets towards the fag end of the day to be in a good position.

... Day 5, Session 1 ...

The hosts are on the verge of drawing this series to 1-1 but the visitors will be disappointed with the way they have played in this Test. Can they provide a resistance or fightback? We hope for a good contest. Join us on Thursday which will be the last day of this series at 9.30 am local (0330 GMT). Goodbye for now. Take care.

367 runs on a Day 5 track is not easy but even for Zimbabwe to save this Test, it will not be easy considering the turn and bounce on this pitch. Taylor's experience will be crucial again. The hosts, on the other hand, would be looking to wrap it up quickly tomorrow. The pitch has started to turn for the spinners. It will be interesting to see how much they exploit out of this. The spinners will play a major role on DAY 5. Taijul will be their main bowler who can strike.

It has been a good session for Bangladesh because they got both the openers dismissed. The visitors would have wanted both the openers to stay till the end of the session but that did not happen. The hosts could have got them early if they had held on to their catches. But today was their day. They lost four quick wickets in no time but then, Mahmudullah and Mithun took the game away with the skipper's hundred before Tea being the icing on the cake.

The umpires have a look at the light and are not too happy. They offer the light to the batsmen and they are off. It is also STUMPS ON DAY 4!

13.3 M Hasan to Masakadza, Full and outside off, Masakadza comes down the wicket and hits it straight to mid on and runs for a single. The fielder at mid on has a shy at the stumps but the throw is well wide. Would've been interesting if he had hit. 40/0

13.2 M Hasan to Masakadza, A carbon copy of the previous ball and a carbon copy of the defense too. 39/0

13.1 M Hasan to Masakadza, Mehidy bowls the first one flighted outside off. Masakadza comes ahead and defends. 39/0

Mehidy Hasan introduced now.

8.6 K Ahmed to H Masakadza, EGDED BUT DROPPED! Again! Regulation catch dropped and more disappointment for the youngster. 3rd catch dropped off his bowling and he's still left yearning for his first Test scalp. Good ball outside off, seaming away after landing, Masakadza just hung his bat outside and gets an outside edge that carried fast and at a good height to Mehidy at gully. However he wasn't able to rise up quickly and hence, the ball fell out of his hands. 12/0

8.5 K Ahmed to Masakadza, Almost the same as last ball, the ball just bounces a bit more. The skipper is surprised as he tries to defend and the ball hits him high on the bat. 12/0

5.5 T Islam to Masakadza, Full and flighted outside off again, the skipper just lets it go through this time. 7/0

5.4 T Islam to Masakadza, NOT OUT! The decision has been overturned! Zimbabwe and Masakadza heave a sigh of relief! Flighted and pitched outside leg, Masakadza came forward to defend the ball but the ball missed his bat and went off something to silly point. Bangladesh appeal and umpire Dharmasena upheld the appeal. The captain was confused a bit, as to whether he was adjudged LBW or caught. He has a long chat with his partner and then eventually signalled for the review. Replays show that the ball just grips and turns viciously as it hits a rough spot on the pitch. No evidence on the Ultra Edge. The third umpire does not check for LBW but even if he had, that seemed to be pitching outside leg stump. 7/0

Fist wicket down! Or is it? Hamilton Masakadza has been given out caught at silly point. The skipper looks bemused at first but then eventually takes the review.

5.3 T Islam to Masakadza, Full and on middle stump, defended safely on this occasion. 7/0
