Cricket: Nasir knock gives Bangladesh competitive total

Nasir Hossain continued his good form with the bat as Bangladesh set Zimbabwe 270 to win the first one-day international at Queens Sports Club on Friday. Nasir followed up his 77 and 67 not out in the second Test victory in Harare with a free-flowing 68 that kept the Bangladeshi innings on track after Shingirai Masakadza had tamed the Tigers' top order.

An aggressive 77 from Nasir Hossain and a determined spell of bowling from Robiul Islam ensured that Bangladesh claimed the upper hand on day two of the second Test against Zimbabwe on Friday. Nasir's entertaining knock stretched Bangladesh's first innings to 391 all out in the morning session, before Robiul dismissed Zimbabwe's openers in the afternoon as the home side slumped to 47 for three at the tea break. Robiul charged in for 11 overs on the trot to record figures of 2 for 16, as he and his fellow seamers frustrated the Zimbabweans with some disciplined bowling.
