Bangladeshi bowlers made use of the new ball to pack the remaining Zimbabwe batsmen in the early session of the fourth day at Khulna’s Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium today.

Chakabva brought up his maiden century and brought down the trail to 65. He was the only batsman who could make a stand this morning after Zimbabwe began day four at 331 with five wickets remaining in hand.

Shakib Al Hasan claimed five wickets removing Masakadza, who scored a career-best of 158, clean bowled on a delivery that kept low and Waller caught behind.

Rubel Hossain clinched two wickets. He removed Chatara caught and bowled and N M’shangwe caught behind.

Taijul Islam trapped Chakabva to end Zimbabwe’s first innings and claim his third.

For the past four days, it seemed that only the new ball held something for the bowlers on the otherwise a fine batting track in Khulna.
