Holidaying at Holiday Inn

After a memorable series-levelling win in the second and final Test against Zimbabwe on Monday, most of the Bangladesh cricketers spent the day relaxing in the team hotel, the Holiday Inn, in Harare yesterday.
They are scheduled to leave for Bulawayo at 7am today where the limited-overs leg of the tour will begin with the first ODI on April 3.
Four players — Shamsur Rahman Shuvo, Abdur Razzak, Shafiul Islam and Mominul Haque — went to the Harare Country Club Ground for a light practice session. Shuvo and Razzak arrived in Harare during the second Test as part of the ODI squad, while Shafiul sat out the second Test, which the Tigers won by 143 runs.
Fast bowler Rubel Hossain, who is suffering from a bout of chicken pox, will stay back in Harare till his condition improves, and is expected to fly back to Bangladesh on Sunday. Till then, the local liaison officer will stay with him at the team hotel.
