Day 2 report: Fast bowler Tendai Chatara and off-spinner Sikandar Raza claimed three wickets each as Zimbabwe took control of the first test against Bangladesh by taking a sizeable 140-run lead on the second day Sunday.

Pace bowler Kyle Jarvis complemented Chatara (3-19) and Raza (3-35) with 2-28.

"Early on I was just trying to hit a good area, because there's so much talk about Bangladesh being flat," Chatara said. "So hitting a good area early on, and making the batsman play as much as possible."

While the combination of Chatara and Jarvis rocked Bangladesh's top order, leaving them 19-4, Raza took care of the lower order to help the side wrap up the hosts for 143. Zimbabwe was bowled out for 282 in its first innings.

With a commanding 139-run lead, Zimbabwe reached 1-0 in its second innings before bad light brought an end to the day.

"Our batsmen couldn't play to their potential," said Bangladesh left-arm spinner Taijul Islam.

"But all is not ended. We have still the chance and we are not keen to give up the hopes. Hopefully we'll put in a good performance in the second innings."

Chatara started out by dismissing Imrul Kayes for 5 while his fellow opener Liton Das perished to a loose shot against Jarvis to fall for 9.

Chatara then put Bangladesh in trouble, dealing a double strike to remove Nazmul Hossain (5) and captain Mahmudullah (0) with near-flawless fast bowling.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Mominul Haque (11) offered brief resistance before Raza got the better of the latter with an off-break.

Jarvis got extra bounce with a full length delivery to end Rahim's vigil, to effectively terminate Bangladesh's hopes of a fight back. Rahim scored 31.

However the hosts found hope in debutant Ariful Haque but Raza continued to baffle the lower order batsmen with his sly off-break, leaving Haque stranded on 41.

Earlier, left-arm spinner Taijul Islam took 6-108 to contain the tourists below 300, after Zimbabwe had started the day at 236-5.
