Day 1 report: Momimul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim both hit centuries and shared a record 266-run partnership to boost Bangladesh to 303-5 from a precarious 26-3 on the opening day of the second test vs Zimbabwe on Sunday. Haque smashed 161 runs and completed his third 150-plus knock, highest by any Bangladeshi batsman while Rahim made an unbeaten 111 as the hosts were finally able to cross 200 runs after eight test innings. Haque’s seventh test ton included 19 boundaries and gave Bangladesh firm control after Zimbabwe’s fast bowlers had wobbled the hosts inside the first hour of the game. Firstly, Zimbabwe pacers Kyle Jarvis and Donald Tiripano rattled through the hosts’ top batting order in the first hour, with Jarvis (3-48) making the first breakthrough in the seventh over, dismissing opener Imrul Kayes for no score after the batsman got an inside edge to offer a catch behind the wicket.
