HARARE (AFP) - Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor and former skipper Tatenda Taibu gave the hosts a great chance of making a winning return to test cricket after an enforced six year absence here on Sunday against Bangladesh.

Taylor and Taibu put on an unbeaten fifth wicket partnership of 96 to leave them on 188-4 at lunch - an overall lead of 271.

Taylor, unbeaten on 46, and Taibu, who recorded his 10th half century in test cricket and is 53 not out had lifted the hosts from a precarious looking 92-4 overnight to a much healthier position on the fourth day.

Taylor looked well set for his second half century of the match, having scored 71 in the first innings, as Bangladesh's spinners failed to test the batsmen.
