Bangladesh Cricket Board's Chief, Nazmul Hassan, has opened up on Mushfiqur Rahim's withdrawal from the tour of Pakistan and came out to tell that he wants Rahim to go and join the rest of the team in Pakistan for the remainder of the tour.

The Bangladeshi spinner Nayeem Hasan could bag wickets only for his discipline part from trying to achieve more from the deck.

Brendan Taylor and Kavin Kasuza make it through to stumps on day three and end the play on 9/2.

Mushfiq and Mominul, who made 132, provided the backbone in Bangladesh innings as the hosts dominated the third day's play after resuming on 240-3.

Bangladesh's Mominul Haque (L) and Najmul Hossain Shanto (R) run between the wickets during the second day.

Wicketkeeper-batsman Regis Chakabva was batting on nine alongside Donald Tiripano, not out at zero, when stumps were drawn at the Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium.

Mushfiqur, who returned to the side after skipping the previous Test against Pakistan, remained unbeaten on 32.

Mominul, unbeaten on 79 overnight, struck 14 fours in his 234-ball innings - his first hundred since becoming Bangladesh Test captain in November.

Ndlovu also removed Mohammad Mithun for 17 to give Zimbabwe something to cherish, which also slowed down Bangladesh free flowing innings.

After Liton's dismissal, it was Mushfiq all over as the senior Bangladesh campaigner upped the tempo in the innings with a looming declaration.

Mushfiqur's 203 has made him Bangladesh's highest run-scorer in the longest format, surpassing left-handed opener Tamim Iqbal. In fact, it was a matter of time for Zimbabwe to capitulate as soon as Craig Ervine departed.

Earlier within the morning, Zimbabwe began the day with 228 runs for six wickets, however the workforce was all out for 265 in entrance of the very best bowling of quick bowler Abu Zayed (4 wickets for 71 runs).
