4

to Anamul, FOUR, gorgeous shot, what a way to get off the mark. Fuller delivery on the stumps, Anamul comes on the front foot and drives it between the bowler and mid-on for a boundary. Delightful shot to watch

4

to Anamul, FOUR, Anamul wants to finish it quickly, drifting on the pads and Anamul gets in the good position quickly and flicks it to the leg-side for a boundary

4

to Anamul, no ball, FOUR, picks up the line and length early and dispatches it for another boundary. Short of length delivery, Anamul goes on the back foot and cuts it through cover-point for a four. has overstepped

4

to Tamim, FOUR, terrific shot! Bangladesh are off to a flyer and Tamim also gets into the act. He gets a good stride forward and opens the face of the bat, ball beats the infield and races for a boundary

4

to Anamul, FOUR, another attacking shot from Anamul and it pays off again, he is on fire. Flighted delivery on pads and Anamul slog sweeps it to deep backward square leg for a boundary

W

to Anamul, out Caught by Craig Ervine!! There was one fielder in the deep on the leg-side and Anamul finds him. Flighted delivery on the pads, Anamul goes down on his knees and slog sweeps straight into the hands of the fielder. Attacking innings from Anamul comes to an end. Anamul c Craig Ervine b 19(14) [4s-4]

4

to Shakib, FOUR, short and wide, asking to be hit and Shakib obliges. He rises in the crease and upper cuts it over point for a boundary

4

to Shakib, FOUR, Shakib smashes it powerfully through cover for a boundary. Poor bowling from , he provided the room again and Shakib is not goint to miss out on these

4

to Shakib, FOUR, changes the angle but that doesn't changes the result. Another boundary for Shakib, 3 in a row . Good length outside the off-stump, Shakib drives it on the up to the off-side and finds the gap to perfection

4

to Shakib, FOUR, lovely use of the feet. Leaves the crease late and takes it on the full, then uses his wrists it place it in the gap right between extra cover and mid-off, raced away to the fence

4

to Tamim, FOUR, drag down and offers plenty of space outside off, Tamim transfers his weight back and slaps it through the packed off-side field, no one sweeping and that raced away to the fence

4

to Shakib, FOUR, very small margins for error. dragged the length back and Shakib was waiting for it, made a bit of room and slapped the cut behind point, splitting backward point and short third man

4

to Tamim, FOUR, Tamim uses the pace on the ball and steers it fine, past short third man and into the fence. He played it very late and almost off Taylor's gloves

W

to Shakib, out Lbw!! Excellent review from . He was the one who was confident of challenging the decision. Even Taylor was not sure. The slider that skids on and beats Shakib on the inside edge, he played outside the line of the ball and is rapped in front of middle. The ball would have gone on to hit the leg-stump. Umpire Shamsuddin was not sure and did not give it out, but reviewed it and got it overturned. Second wicket for him and what a day he is having - fifty and has picked up both wickets to fall. Shakib lbw b 37(46) [4s-5]

4

to Tamim, FOUR, poor effort in the field. Tamim shimmies down and converts it into a full toss, whips it to mid-on, Mire moves across and allows the ball to slip through his legs, trickles into the long-on fence

4

to Tamim, FOUR, edged and four. Short and turning away, Tamim wanted to force it off the back foot, went a bit too hard and the outside edge raced away fine, no chance for Chatara to hunt that down

OT

to Tamim, 1 run, fifty for Tamim. A raise of the bat to acknowledge the applause. A typical Tamim innings. Took his time to settle in and now looks on course to see Bangladesh through. This kept a touch low and Tamim adjusted well to bunt it towards point

4

to Tamim, FOUR, horrible delivery and deserved the treatment. Short and spinning down leg, Tamim kneels down and helps it along the way over backward of square leg, no one in the deep to stop that

6

to Rahim, SIX, straight as an arrow! Good footwork from Rahim, gets to the pitch with a shimmy down the track and lofts this flighted delivery over 's head. Crashes into the sightscreen

4

to Tamim, FOUR, comedy of errors in the outfield and it's another boundary to Tamim. Stays back to this half-tracker and feasts on the width on offer. Cuts it late behind point and the man at sweeper cover did well to get to it but timed the slide poorly, thereby getting his foot touching the ropes while making contact with the ball. Funnily, he then threw the ball somewhere else. They check it upstairs and it's a boundary

6

to Tamim, SIX, dumped into the stands! Bangladesh are on the canter here. Both batsmen want to get this done quickly. The attempted googly from but it's too full and Tamim is seeing them really well. Unleashes the mighty slog sweep over deep backward square leg

4

to Tamim, FOUR, more sloppy work from Zimbabwe in the field. This should have been stopepd at mid-off but the fielder let's it through and it races to the fence. A fuller ball that Tamim drove with a straight bat. Should have been stopped but it has been that kind of day for Zimbabwe. Nothing has gone right

4

to Rahim, FOUR, 'catch' was the call but this was in the gap. Tossed up around off, Rahim goes for the slog sweep and although he didn't connect it that well, still had enough on it to reach the fence. Scores level now

W

to Mire, wide, out Stumped!! Bangaldesh are looking very confident about the stumping down the leg-side. Umpire has gone upstairs. Down the leg -side, Mire lost his balance and Rahim takes off the bails in a flash. Terrific start from Bangladesh, whatta start to the match. Mire st Rahim b 0(0)

W

to Craig Ervine, out Caught by Sabbir Rahman!! An absolute nightmare start for Zimbabwe, soft dismissal this. Craig Ervine must be kicking himself. Flighted delivery and Craig Ervine just flicks it to the leg-side, gets on top of the blade and the fielder takes a dolly at short mid-wicket Craig Ervine c Sabbir Rahman b 0(2)

4

Islam to Masakadza, FOUR, he dispatches it over mid-wicket for a boundary, that would release some pressure. Short delivery, asking to be hit, Masakadza rocks back on the back foot and pulls it for a boundary.

4

to Masakadza, FOUR, crunched off the back foot for a boundary. Short and wide, asking to be hit and Masakadza goes back and cuts it through the off-side field for a boundary

W

to Masakadza, out Caught by Rahim!! An absolute horrible shot from Masakadza, rush of a blood perhaps. You don't play such shots in a rebuilding phase. Ball was well outside the off-stump, Masakadza went for a wild swing and gets an outside edge, Rahim behind the wicket does the rest. Masakadza c Rahim b 15(24) [4s-2]

4

to Brendan Taylor, FOUR, terrific shot from Brendan Taylor, played with the turn through covers for a boundary

4

to Brendan Taylor, FOUR, gorgeous cover drive from Brendan Taylor, gets a good stride forward and drives that pitched up delivery between extra cover and mid-off for a boundary

6

to Raza, SIX, gee! That has gone for a six, you must be kidding me. He again failed to pick the cutter and was too early in the shot, ball hit slightly lower on the bat and it clears the long-on ropes. bats these days make a mockery of bowling at times

W

to Brendan Taylor, out Caught by Rahim!! Fizz gets the huge wicket of Taylor, this is a massive moment in the match. Taylor was looking good but he perishes and with it probably the hopes of putting up a decent score for Zimbabwe, too. Another delivery angled away from Brendan Taylor, he pokes at it away from the body, gets an outside edge and Rahim behind the stumps makes no mistake. Brendan Taylor c Rahim b 24(45) [4s-2]

D

to Waller, 1 run, dropped! Nasir the culprit at first slip and he's put down a dolly. is absolutely livid and rightly so. Back of a length ball that had a touch of extra bounce, Waller went hard on the cut but only eked out an outside edge. Should have been taken but instead, is grassed and gets past the fielder

4

to Waller, FOUR, crunched away! The sucker ball from after a series of bouncers, very full and Waller was expecting it. Takes full toll of the half volley and slams it wide of mid-off

D

Islam to Waller, no run, dropped! Hit very hard and did well to react quickly but it didn't stick. Very full and outside off, slammed hard and high towards the bowler. Would have been a really good take if he had held on to it

W

Islam to Waller, out Caught by Sabbir Rahman!! Gone this time! An excellent take by Sabbir moving to his right at first slip. has his man eventually. Slowed this up and kept it around off, Waller should have been forward to this but decided to play it from the crease and went for the cut. Thick edge and a good catch to send him back to the hut. Half the side down now. Crisis mounting for Zimbabwe. Waller c Sabbir Rahman b Islam 13(30) [4s-1]

4

to Raza, FOUR, cracking shot! High time that Raza started to up the rate a bit. He's well-set and with the wickets continuing to fall, the onus is on him now. Gets this short and wide, pounces on the opportunity with a slap cut over backward point. Third man had no chance

6

to Raza, SIX, that's come out of nowhere! We know he can hit them a long way but he's been very scratchy today, till this shot. Might just be the release shot he needed. A half-tracker from and it's dumped deep into the stands at mid-wicket with a ferocious pull. Sheer power!

4

to Moor, leg byes, FOUR, poor bowling from the skipper. He's been on middle and leg all over, this time outside leg, Moor can't get bat on the glance but the ball brushes the pad and beats Rahim's dive to the left

4

Hossain to Raza, FOUR, fifty for Raza. A very mature innings from him. Weathered the storm early on and has battled his way to his 9th ODI fifty. Zimbabwe need him to convert it into a hundred. Races down the wicket and gets to the pitch of the flighted delivery, drives crisply through extra cover

W

Hossain to Raza, out Raza Run Out!! Big wicket this for Bangladesh. Raza had settled in and was the one to bat through. Fraction short and turning in, Raza mistimes the pull to the left of short fine. Moor never called him for a run, Raza took off and saw Moor standing still, he turned back and tried to make it in with a dive, all too late. Shakib gathered the ball and lobbed it to Rahim, who did the rest. Raza run out (Shakib/Rahim) 52(99) [4s-2 6s-2]

4

to Moor, FOUR, slower delivery dropped right in the slot, Moor extends his arms and lofts it over extra cover. Nothing fancy just went through the line and cleared the infield with ease

4

to Moor, FOUR, a real drag down and Moor is all over it, transfers his weight onto the back foot and pulls it towards deep mid-wicket, spliting the two men in the deep to perfection

W

to Cremer, out Caught by Rubel!! Good low catch. fired it full and outside off, Cremer advanced and had to reach out to play the loft, toe-ends it towards long-off. The ball was dying in front of Rubel, he tumbled forward and took it inches from the ground. Cremer c Rubel b 12(20)

W

to Moor, out Bowled!! Cleaned up. is delighted with that wicket. His first wicket. Full, fast and straight, Moor backed away to the leg-side to open up the off-side field, but was beaten for sheer pace, the ball snuck past him before the bat came down. Moor b 33(58) [4s-2]

W

to Chatara, out Bowled!! Two in two for . He is on a hat-trick. He already has one in ODIs. Another full delivery that does the trick, just outside off and Chatara's feet went nowhere as he aimed to make contact with the ball, the inside edge rattles the stumps. Chatara b 0(1)

W

to Muzarabani, out Bowled!! Just too good. Many top-order batsmen have failed to cope with that. The off-cutter on a length, Muzarabani is not in-line to keep that out, what's more it grips and breaks away from the right-hander past the wild swing to hit the top of off-stump. Muzarabani b 1(5)
