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.
