Zimbabwe fast bowler Tendai Chatara has been ruled out of the ongoing second Test match against Bangladesh. Chatara suffered a quad two muscle strain in Bangladesh first innings. The pacer was taken off the field with a help of a stretcher. Thus, Chatara has been ruled from the remaining match and will not take any further part.

The right-arm fast bowled pulled left thigh while bowling in his delivery stride. Thus, the expression of grimace was palpable on his face. Tendai Chatara bowled 22.2 overs before pulling his thigh. Meanwhile, Chatara had scalped three wickets in the first Test match after bowling 19 overs.

Bangladesh has put their noses in front as they are currently on 374-6. The southpaw batsman Mominul Haque scored a fine knock of 161 whereas Tigers experienced wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is batting unbeaten on 141.

Kyle Jarvis has been the pick of the Zimbabwe bowlers as the right-arm fast bowler has scalped four wickets. Thus, Zimbabwe will hope that the injury to Chatara doesn’t impede their progress in the match.

The tourists will aim to come up with a good batting performance to stay in the game. However, they first need to get the better off the remaining four wickets.
