Shakib Al Hasan, the hero of the second Test became the only third player in the history to grasp 10 wickets along with smashing a hundred in a match. Tamim Iqbal was the other centurion while Mominul Haque, Mahmudullah and Mushfiqur Rahim are having a good time with the willow. Taijul Islam, Jubair Hossain and Shahadat Hossain are their exceptional bowlers.
Hamilton Masakadza with Regis Chakabva powered tons in the previous game but they need a perfect assistance from Brendan Taylor, Sikandar Raza and Craig Ervine. Tinashe Panyangara is the highest wicket taker of Zimbabwe with 10, Malcolm Waller has been reported for a suspected action whereas Elton Chigumbura, Tendai Chatara and Natsai M’shangwe should be more accurate in their bowling.
