ZIM vs BAN 1st Test Day 2: Zimbabwe bundle Bangladesh for 468 in first innings; ZIM 114/1 (41 ov) Follow Live update: Continuing on their overnight score of 294/8, Mahmudullah and Taskin Ahmed opened Day 2 for Bangladesh. The duo turned invincible as they jammed a 191-run stand between them to drive their side to a handsome total. While Mahmudullah returned not-out at 150, Ahmed lost his wicket after scoring 75 runs. After visitors dismissal, Zimbabwe trail by 468 runs.
Das, whose previous top Test score was 94, pulled a short delivery to be caught agonizingly short of the landmark but his 138-run partnership with Mahmudullah did help Bangladesh to an imposing total after they were struggling on 132/6.
Mominul Haque scored 70, after Bangladesh won the toss and chose to bat at the Harare Sports Club, and former skipper Mahmudullah hit an unbeaten 54 and will resume on Thursday with tailender Taskin Ahmed, who is 13 not out.
Zimbabwe opener Blessing Muzarabani took 3-48 and Donald Tiripano two wickets in as many deliveries after dismissing Das and then trapping Mehidy Hasan Miraz leg before with his next ball. The Test is a one-off before the two countries embark on a limited-overs series, also at the Harare Sports Club.

ZIM vs BAN 1st Test Live: Toss
Bangladesh captain Mominul Haque won the toss and opted to bat first against Zimbabwe in a one-off Test here at the Harare Sports Club, Harare on Wednesday.
Both team captains at the toss
Taylor: We would have bowled. The first day is a good one for the bowlers here and our bowling attack looks good. There will be challenges but we are looking forward to that. The conditions all around the world are challenging, but we are pleased to have some cricket at the moment. We have four bowlers, and two debutants in the form of Takudzwanashe Kaitano and Dion Myers.
Mominul: We will bat first. The wicket looks dry and I think we’ll get some spin in the fourth innings, it will be crucial. I think it was a good preparation for all of us as the batsmen got runs. We are going to play four bowlers and seven batsmen.
