Hossain gives Bangladesh edge in 3rd Test

Young legspinner Jubair Hossain grabbed a five-wicket haul in only his third Test to hand Bangladesh the advantage in the third and final Test against Zimbabwe in Chittagong on Friday. The 19-year-old finished with 5/96 as Bangladesh, hoping to sweep the series 3-0, dismissed Zimbabwe for 374 runs on the third day to gain a 129-run lead. The hosts extended the overall lead to 152 runs after reaching 23/0 in their second knock by stumps. Elton Chigumbura (88), Sikandar Raza (82), Hamilton Masakadza (81) and Regis Chakabva (65) settled in for Zimbabwe, but all three failed to convert the starts into centuries.
