Shakib claims rare all-round feat in Test win
Allrounder Shakib Al Hasan became the third man to hit a hundred and take 10 wickets in the same match as Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 162 runs in the second Test to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match series.

Zimbabwe, who lost the first Test in Dhaka by three wickets, folded for 151 in their second innings as they chased 314 for victory. Former captain Shakib, who took 5 for 80 in the first innings, underlined his status as Bangladesh’s best cricketer by taking 5 for 44 in the second. He followed England allrounder Ian Botham and Pakistan’s Imran Khan in making a hundred and a haul of 10 wickets in the same Test. The left-hander, who scored 137 in the first innings to set up Bangladesh’s first innings total of 433, took out the dangerous Hamilton Masakadza (61) in the last session to spark a collapse as Zimbabwe lost their last five wickets for 15 runs.

BRIEFSCORES Bangladesh 433 and 248/9 dec beat Zimbabwe 368  (Masakadza 158, Shakib 5-80) and 151 (Masakadza 61, Shakib 5-44) by 162 runs.
