PRINCE Masvaure and Kevin Kasuza have made a great opening in a warm-up game against Bangladesh Cricket Board XI.

Kasuza was first to reach a half-century before being retired while Masvaure was equally strong as Zimbabwe reached 100 without losing a wicket.

That opening partnership, between Kasuza and Masvaure, gives the Chevrons hope ahead of the one-off test match against Bangladesh from February 22 to 26.

Brian Mudzinganyama then joined Masvaure at the crease in that ongoing warm-up game featuring six under 19 world cup winners for Bangladesh.

The hosts have been making sure they give their talented youngsters a chance to shine on the stage.

Masvaure was out for 45 before stand-in captain Craig Ervine joined Mudzinganyama.

Apart from the test match, Bangladesh face Zimbabwe in three one-day internationals on March 1, 3 and 6 in Syhlet.

Two Twenty20 international games set for March 9 and 11 in Dhaka will wrap-up the tour.
