Khunlna, Bangladesh: Bangladesh batted steadily to reach 79-2 with a 144-run lead in its second innings on the fourth day of the second test against Zimbabwe on Thursday.

Left-arm spinner Shakib Al Hasan claimed his 13th five-wicket haul to help dismiss Zimbabwe for 368 before lunch and Mominul Haque was on 27 with Mahmudullah on 2 at the break.
Tamim Iqbal gave Tinashe Panyangara (1-24) return catch to be out for 20 after hitting him for consecutive boundaries. Before being dismissed, Iqbal who scored a century in the first innings, started fluently in order to pace the innings.
Shamsur Rahman was beaten by a Malcolm Waller (1-12) delivery that turned sharply and was out for 23.
After Zimbabwe resumed the day on 331-5, Hamilton Masakadza hit a career-best 154 and Regis Chakabva brought up his maiden test century before being dismissed on 101 as the last batsman shortly before the end of the morning session.
It was the first time since 2001 that two Zimbabwe batsmen scored a century in a test innings test.
Shakib, who hit 137 in the first innings, joins the likes of Ian Botham, Garry Sobers, Mushtaq Mohammad and Jacques Kallis in bringing up a century and claiming a five-wicket haul in a single test more than once. Botham achieved the feat five times.
