Enamul strikes again
Bangladesh A in control
Sports Reporter

Enamul Haque Jr. continued to haunt Zimbabwean batsmen like an unshakeable ghost as he put Bangladesh A in charge on day two of the first A Test at Bulawayo yesterday.

Enamul, the A team captain, who single-handedly demolished Zimbabwe's senior side in the two-Test series at home last month by taking 18 wickets, was at his destructive best once again as he snapped up seven wickets to finish Zimbabwe A's first innings on 188.

That gave the tourists a 66-run lead and they had stretched that advantage to 247 when reports last came in. The firebrand Shahadat Hossain Rajib was reportedly hostile throughout and took two wickets bowling very fast.


Raqib al-Hasan a teenaged opener had struck his maiden first-class century to take Bangladesh A to 254 on the first day. Raqib made 25 in the second innings but solid contributions from Tushar Imran (55) and Wasseluddin (48) enabled his side to reach 181 for five after tea.


The home team sent the visitors in on a grassy Queens Sports Club wicket and did a fair job in restricting them. But Shahadat dismissed Vusi Sibanda and Zimbabwe A captain Dion Ebrahim with just 18 on the board as they stuttered to 57-3 by close on the opening day.


Raqib, who opened the innings with vice-captain Shahriar Nafees Ahmed, made exactly 100 but the second string Bangladesh could not capitalise on a decent start.

The openers put on 63 before left-handed Nafees (27) was removed by paceman Nicolson.

Pace trio Nicolson, Blessing Mahwire and Craig McMillan then made regular inroads into the Bangladesh middle-order. Macmillan bagged four for 63.


Raqib, who hit 14 boundaries in his 157-ball knock only received support from Mahmudullah Riyadh (55 off 72).

The hard-hitting Riyadh joined Raqib on 153-4 and took the total to 198 before Raqib was caught by Sibanda off Mahhwire. Macmillan captured the last three wickets in the space of seven runs.


Zimbabwe A's reply started badly as Sibanda was clean bowled for eight. Ebrahim, who had a horrendous tour of Bangladesh which cost him his place in the main team, was caught behind by wicketkeeper Dhiman Ghosh for a two-ball duck on the same score.


Enamul struck just before stumps by trapping Samunderu lbw in his only over.

Great Job with Bowling!!
Although they could have done better in the second innings batting 181/5 is kind of alarming. I guess if BD-A can rach 250+ with the remaining 5 wickets....we will be in the safe side. The point of uncomfort is that 2 more days in the match still remaining. A solid batting from ZIM-A might turn the match in their direction. But they will hvae to bat in the 4th innings, hopefully Enamul will do the magic once more.

I think a lead of 350+ would be comfortable.

205/5 + 66 run 1st innings lead...its already 271 and 5 more wickets to go...looks like going for a big lead

The way pitch is behaving, 300+ should be good enough for a win. And we are very close to 300 with 5 wickets in hand.

Actually, it's 181/5, for a total lead of (181+66) 247 at the end of day 2.

"Batting wise we finished at 205 for 5 with Riyad (36*) and Dhiman together after Wassell (48) and Tushar (61) added 90 for the 4th wicket." -- By observer (http://www.banglacricket.com/alochona/viewthread.php?tid=9688&page=4)


What is your source Billah? Which score is the correct one?

Which means the daily star score may not be the final score of day two.

Yes well i think that Richard McInness would know the correct score seen as he is there at the ground coaching the team.

To add to that:

Bangladesh spinner nightmare for Zimbabwe
Wellington Toni
BANGLADESH spinner Enamul Haque Junior took seven wickets as Zimbabwe A were skittled for 188, leaving the hosts trailing by 275 runs at close of play on the second day of the first four day match played at Queens Sports Club yesterday.
Zimbabwe had closed on 57 for the loss of three wickets on the first day, but could not deal with Haque Jnr’s spin when they tried to close the gap on the tourists.
Bangladesh compiled 254 in their first innings on Sunday with Roqibul Hassan and Mahmud Ullah on a century and half century respectively. Craig MacMillan returned figures of four wickets for 64 runs and former national team paceman Blessing Mahwire was 348.
Zimbabwe resumed play with Terrence Duffin and Graeme Cremer at the crease on 22 and nil respectively and Cremer fell first, given out leg before wicket for six.
The middle order crumbled under Haque Jnr’s spinGregory Strydom caught by Rahim Mishfiqur trying to play off the ball on eight and SK Rassel completed the middle order routing claiming the scalp of Craig Ervine for two.
At one stage, Zimbabwe were 481 and crumbled to 7177clear signs that the hosts will not be able to out the tourists against the wall.
Duffin held on for his first class halfcentury, which came after a patient 130 balls after 177 minutes and included six boundaries. It was a good performance by the opener and he remains Zimbabwe’s best hope if the bowlers do their job today.
It was then left to Haque Jnr – the man who destroyed Zimbabwe in the last series – to complete the rout although he met resistance from Mahwire. Tafadzwa Mufambisi was bowled for nine, but Mahwire went on to reach 35 before he was bowled out.
MacMillan was given out leg before wicket on 14, as Zimbabwe’s chances of reaching the tourists’ first innings total crumbled.
Haque Jnr returned figures of 747.
Bangladesh A started with an advantage of 66, but the opening pair of Nafees Ahmed and Roqibul Hassan did not start off well todayAhmed out leg before wicket off a Macmillan delivery still struggling at five.
MacMillan’s second wicket was Hassanhis furious ball saw the Bangladeshi edging the ball to Tafadzwa Mufambisi to retire at 25. Bangladesh were reeling at 348 and it seemed Zimbabwe was well on course in the match.
Bangladesh were rescued by a half century from Toshar Imran (52), before he fell to a Mahwire delivery and Wassel Udim’s 46, leaving the tourists at 4136.
Uddim was out leg before wicket from a Strydom delivery, but had done enough to increase the gap between the two teams.
Mahmud Ullah, looking sharp on the crease was unbeaten on 37 and Dihman Ghosh on 19 at close of play after 61 overs.
With a lead of 275 and with five wickets in a hand, Bangladesh are poised for a big lead unless Zimbabwe’s bowling improves.
Ian Nicholson spell of 11 overs gave the tourists 49 runs for now wicket and Cremer bowled 14 overs and gave away 61 runs for no wicket. MacMillan was economic taking two wickets for 14, Mahwire returning figures of 244 and Strydom giving way 37 runs for his sole wicket after 12 overs.
