The Tigers are at lunch with 25 runs for one wicket in 8 overs. Tamim Iqbal (10*) and Nazmul Hossain Shanto (5*) are unbeaten at the crease.

Zimbabwe started the day with overnight score 228/6. Skipper Craig Ervine (107) scored his third Test century to bring his side in this position. Ervine was the last wicket to fall on day one which left Regis Chakabva as the last recognised batsman at the crease.

Abu Jayed Rahi, who already picked up two on day one, raised chances of his maiden five-for dismissing Donald Tiripano (8) and Ainsley Ndlovu (0) early in the second day. But he was taken out after the first hour.

Taijul Islam got amongst the wickets with the wicket of Charlton Tshuma, who was given lbw for a four-ball duck. Chakabva was the last man to fall when he top-edged a slog sweep of Taijul to end his innings for 30 and Zimbabwe were bundled out for 265 runs in 106.3 overs.

Rahi and Nayeem were the pick of the bowlers with both taking four wickets each. Taijul took 2 for 90 in 27.3 overs. Ebadat Hossain bowled 17 overs for 26 runs but was not given a go in the morning session.

Brief scores:

Zimbabwe 265 allout in 106.3 overs (Ervine 107, Masvaure 64; Nayeem 4/70, Rahi 4/71)

Bangladesh 25/1 in 8 overs (Tamim 10*, Saif 8, Shanto 5*; Nyauchi 1/11) trail by 240 runs
