Mahmudullah has an average of 29.16 in Tests and a big contribution was needed with many questioning his Test batting credentials
Bangladesh stand-in Test captain Mahmudullah broke his eight-year long wait to bag a Test hundred.
The right-handed middle-order batsman scored an unbeaten 101 in Bangladesh’s second innings to set a 443-run target for visitors Zimbabwe to chase in the fourth innings.
Mahmudullah produced his second Test century after scoring his maiden ton with a hiatus of 76 innings and that revived the Tigers’ second innings that was reeling on 25-4.
Mahmudullah first produced a 118-run stand with Mohammad Mithun for the fifth wicket and then produced an unbeaten 73-run partnership with Mehedi Hasan Miraz for the seventh wicket.
He reached the milestone and declared the Bangladesh innings at the stroke of Tea.
Mahmudullah has an average of 29.16 in Tests and a big contribution was needed with many questioning his Test batting credentials.
Mahmudullah had hit his first Test century in 2010 against New Zealand at Hamilton.
