Khulna - Bangladesh batted steadily to reach 62-1 at lunch on the first day of the second cricket Test against Zimbabwe on Monday.
Tamim Iqbal was batting on 27 with Mominul Haque on 26 at the break after Bangladesh captain Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and elected to bat first.
Shamsur Rahman was the only batsman to be dismissed in the morning session when he was trapped lbw for 2 by Elton Chigumbura (1-10).
The umpire's decision was not out but Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor called for a review, which went in his favour.
Iqbal and Haque combined to deal with the Zimbabwe bowlers patiently and add 56 runs in an unbroken second-wicket stand.
Bangladesh leads the three-match series 1-0.
Zimbabwe made three changes to squad that lost the first Test by three wickets, bringing in Brian Chari, Natsai M'Shangwe and Malcolm Waller at the expense of Vusi Sibanda, John Nyumbu and Tafadzwa Kamungozi.
