Bangladesh on top after Shakib's five-for - Cricket News
Shakib Al Hasan returned figures of 5 for 80 as Bangladesh bowled Zimbabwe out for 368.
Shakib Al Hasan followed up his good work with the bat to return figures of 5 for 80 and put Bangladesh in a strong position on Thursday (November 6), the fourth day of the second Test against Zimbabwe at the Sheikh Abu Naser Stadium in Khulna. 

Shakib's heroics helped Bangladesh bowl out Zimbabwe, who resumed on 331 for 5, for 368 and a lead of 65 runs. 

Bangladesh had reached 201 for 5 in their second innings when stumps were drawn, an overall lead of 266. Mahmudullah, on 63, and Shuvagata Hom, on 23, were the two batsmen at the crease. 

Shakib, who made 137 in Bangladesh's first innings total of 433, became only the fifth player to score a century and take five wickets in the same innings of a Test match more than once. He had made 144 and claimed 6 for 83 against Pakistan in Dhaka in 2011. 
Ian Botham achieved the feat five times, while Garry Sobers, Mushtaq Mohammad of Pakistan and Jacques Kallis did it twice each. 

Hamilton Masakadza was the first to fall on the fourth day when he was castled by Shakib for 158, having added just four runs to his overnight score. Shakib then had Malcolm Waller caught behind for 6 to complete his 13th five-wicket haul in Tests. 

Regis Chakabva, who resumed on 75, went on to complete his maiden Test century, before he was the last man dismissed, for 101. 

Taijul Islam (3 for 96) and Rubel Hossain (2 for 55) were the other wicket-takers for Bangladesh. 

Bangladesh lost Tamim Iqbal early in their second innings when he was caught and bowled by Tinashe Panyangara for 20. That brought out Mominul Haque, who made 54. 

He added 47 with Shamsur Rahman, before Mahmudullah joined him for a third-wicket stand that was worth 56. 

Shakib and Mushfiqur Rahim, the captain, departed in quick succession, but Mahmudullah and Hom negotiated the final phase of play, ensuring there was no further damage. 

Waller was the pick of the Zimbabwe bowlers with 4 for 48 off 21 overs. 

Bangladesh leads the three-Test series 1-0, thanks to a narrow three-wicket win in the first Test in Mirpur. The third Test will be played in Chittagong from November 12-16. 
The Tests will be followed by five One-Day Internationals.
