The Bangladeshi spinners ripped through the batting line up of Zimbabwe who were unable to follow the quality spin, lost the first Test and will anticipate a better show in the next one. The home spinners grabbed 18 wickets in both innings while the visitor’s slow bowlers were able to take two mere wickets in the game. The low scoring opening Test was dominated by the bowlers from either sides and no batsman was able to reach the three figures. The Bengal Tigers clinched the game by a narrow margin of three wickets and the match was rolled back in just three days. The hosts are leading the three Test series at 1-0 and will anticipate enhancing their lead to 2-0 whereas the tourists will try to level it.

The first captured eight wickets in the second innings while the latter was instrumental in taking six in the first while Jubair Hossain and Shahadat Hossain done the rest. Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah, Mushfiqur Rahim registered fifties in the match and Tamim Iqbal along with Shamsur Rahman can get back their form. They have left out their pace bowler, Al-Amin Hossain, for the next game who will be replaced by the wicketkeeper batsman, Anamul Haque.

Sikandar Raza was the only batsman of Zimbabwe who touched fifty runs mark, Brendan Taylor, Elton Chigumbura, Craig Ervine and Regis Chakabava must change their tactics against spin. Their express bowler Tinashe Panyangara, Elton Chigumbura bowled well but their spinners should learn from the rival slow bowlers.

  7. This Test match sucks big time. Odds are not moving and there is no money in the market. 2 days are gone and odds are back to square one. I manage to squeeze out some profit from this tight market. You guys better get out of this match and get into T20 mode. Plenty of T20s are lined up.
