Former Highlanders goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini has backed FC Platinum to overcome Orlando Pirates in a Caf Champions League group stage match at Orlando Stadium this evening.

Bangladesh were bowled out for 143 in their first innings, after Tendai Chatara ripped through the top-order with a three-wicket burst, and Sikandar Raza followed it up with three wickets of his own, giving Zimbabwe a crucial 139-run lead in Sylhet. Zimbabwe could only add one more run in reply before the umpires ruled that the light was too bad, bringing an end to a day dominated by the visitors.

Former Zimbabwe captain Tatenda Taibu will once again wield the willow at the age of 35 as he will feature for a Sri Lankan first-class side, Baduraliya Sports Club, later this month. He last played competitive cricket back in 2016, when he used to work as player and coach for Hightown St Mary's CC, a club in the UK.
