Earlier, Graeme Cremer and Kyle Jarvis helped Zimbabwe restrict an in-form Bangladesh to 216 for 9.
The hosts were 147 for 2 in the 35th over, but captain Cremer removed one batsman in each of his next three overs to contain the hosts’ run surge. And help from Jarvis ensured the Tigers cannot build on the platform set by Tamim Iqbal and Shakib Al Hasan.
Choosing to bat first, Bangladesh did not have the best of the starts, Jarvis sending opener Anamul Haque, who could manage only one, to the pavillion in the third over.
Tamim and Shakib then made 106 in the second wicket to put the hosts in a good position. Shakib departed after making 51 off 80 balls while in-form Tamim hit his third consecutive fifty. Tamim’s 76 came in 105 balls and the innings took him past Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya in the chart of scoring the highest number of runs on a certain ground.
ill date, Sri Lankan legend Sanath Jayasuriya held the record for scoring the highest number of runs on a certain ground. In his 71 innings at Premadasa Stadium in Colombo, the opener had scored 2514 thanks to four centuries and 19 half centuries.
But Tamim now has 2549 runs at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, made in 74 matches. The left-handed batsman has hit five centuries and 16 half centuries on this ground.
Former Pakistan captain Inzamam Ul Haq is third, he has hit 2464 runs in 59 games at Sharjah.
With both Inzamam and Jayasuriya now retired, only Tamim’s team-mate Shakib Al Hasan has a chance to topple the opener.
Shakib has scored 2369 runs in 76 games at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium, thanks to two centuries and 20 half centuries.
It was number nine batsman Sunzamul Islam’s 19 and number ten batsman Mustafizur Rahman’s 18 that helped the hosts go beyond 200.
Cremer ended the day with four wickets to his name while Jarvis had three.
