Bangladesh has continued to tighten their grip over the only Test match against Zimbabwe. After an impressive performance on the second day, the hosts recorded another elite show – an event which saw The Tigers getting installed into the driving seat of the contest.
Importantly, skipper Mominul Haque looked in prime touch as he produced an innings of great significance to lead Bangladesh’s batting reply. It was good to see the elegant lefty doing his thing after dismal shows against India and Pakistan.
The 28-year old cricketer scored 132 runs with the help of 14 fours to complement Mushfiqur Rahim’s double century and gave Bangladesh a 295-run lead in the Dhaka Test. This was Mominul’s 9th Test century, which made him share the honor of scoring most Test centuries for his country along with the opening batsman Tamim Iqbal. Bangladeshi bowlers also joined the party to reduce Zimbabwe to 9-2 in the second innings as things look smooth for the unit to return to the winning track in red-ball cricket.
