He displayed an immense show of patience as he scored 88 off 173 balls with just nine boundaries. The backbone of the visitors' 236 for five on the first day, the left-hander frustrated Bangladesh's array of spinners but he failed to find a partner. A 38-run stand with Hamilton Masakadza and a 44-run partnership with Sikandar Raza preceded the 72 runs he added in tandem with Peter Moor. By then however, he had perhaps begun to tire. He fell after having stood vigil for 60 overs, caught off part-timer and Bangladesh captain Mahmudllah Riyad, but with a job well done.
