Shakib returns with a bang

The controversial all-rounder was banned by his own cricket board in July after it criticised his attitude, but proved his worth with figures of six for 59 as he ripped through the Zimbabwe tail.

The hosts reached the close on 27 for one, trailing by 213.

Sikandar Raza was the pick of the Zimbabwe batsmen with 51, including six fours, but the day belonged to Shakib.

The left-arm spinner's first victim was Hamilton Masakadza for 13, skying a shot to Jubair Hossain at mid-off, and, when Hossain himself removed Raza, the tourists were 128 for four.

Shakib then seized control, dismissing Elton Chigumbura (29), Regis Chakabva (25), John Nyumbu (14), Tinashe Panyangara (eight) and Tafadzwa Kamungozi (five).

In reply, Tamim Iqbal was the man out for Bangladesh for five.
