Chevrons release the Tigers

By Larry Trusida Sport Editor
THE Zimbabwe National Cricket Team, the Chevrons will be disappointed with their bowling after giving away too many runs on day two of the test against Bangladesh.
After ending the first day in a commanding position, the Chevrons bowled dismally on the second day as they allowed the last two wickets for Bangladesh to add 174 runs on the board, before the visitors were eventually dismissed for 468 runs.
A record 191 runs ninth wicket partnership for Bangladesh between Mahmudullar Riyad and Taskin Ahmed made Zimbabwe toil in the field and the hosts did not do themselves any favours as they could not grab the few chances they created.
Blessing Muzarabani finally made the breakthrough for his fourth wicket of the innings, and a rare wicket from part-timer Milton Shumba.
In reply Zimbabwe started solidly with young Shumba who is playing his second test leading the charge before giving his wicket away at 41.
Takudzwanashe Kaitano looked solid for his 33 not out and was joined by stand in Captain Brendan Taylor who looked solid in attacking the tigers.
Zimbabwe ended day two on 114 for one, trailing Bangladesh by 354 runs.
