Zim make spirited reply to B’desh’s 503
Zimbabwe’s top order came good to put up a strong reply to Bangladesh’s huge first innings total of 503 on the second day of the third and final Test in Chittagong on Thursday. Opener Sikandar Raza remained unbeaten on 54 and Hamilton Masakadza was on 51 as the tourists reached 113-1 by stumps, still trailing by 390 runs with nine wickets in hand. The pair added 104 for the unbroken second wicket after opener Brian Chari was caught behind off Rubel Hossain without scoring. Rubel had earlier shone with the bat, making an entertaining 45 off 44 balls to help Bangladesh post their highest total against Zimbabwe, surpassing the 488 in Chittagong in 2005.
