OT

to Masakadza, no run, Masakadza prods forward and by the time he could bring his bat down, he was struck on the knee roll. The ball just skidded in and hit him close to off. Impact looked tight to the naked eye and I guess it was Rahim who convinced the duo of and Mortaza to go for the review

W

to Masakadza, out Caught by Sabbir Rahman!! Poor shot from Masakadza. No feet. Just waves his bat at an away swinger and sends a thick edge straight into the lap of Sabbir Rahman at first slip. Masakadza c Sabbir Rahman b 5(15)

W

to Mire, out Bowled!! Hits the middle of middle. chuckles. Quite schoolboy-esque dismissal that. Mire, desperately, looking to get out of the jail; sees the ball land short and rocks back to hammer the pull, there's no pace neither spin on the ball. It slides in with the arm and clatters the furniture. Mire b 7(22)

W

to Brendan Taylor, out Lbw!! Double blow for Zimbabwe. Taylor doesn't bother reviewing. Was that sliding down leg? Umpire's call? Maybe. Fired in with the angle again, Taylor was cemented on the back foot and he tried to evade the ball with the swing of the bat. The ball zips in and clicks him in front of middle and leg in no-time. Oh! It's all happening. Wickets - umpire's call, clipping the leg peg reveal the technology. Brendan Taylor lbw b 0(1)

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, presses towards the line of the ball and unveils a gorgeous drive straight of mid-off. Timed to perfection

4

to Craig Ervine, FOUR, that's the best way to play spin. Stretches forward and belts the sweep from middle and off, way behind square leg

4

to Raza, FOUR, steps out of his crease, gets to the pitch of the ball and smacks the lofted-drive over mid-off

W

to Craig Ervine, out Caught by Sabbir Rahman!! Zimbabwe are falling apart here. Ervine the latest to depart. Transfers his weight onto the back foot and slashes his bat looking to punch a back of a length delivery, the ball moved away just enough to skim the edge and Sabbir takes a good catch diving to his right at first slip. Craig Ervine c Sabbir Rahman b 11(15) [4s-2]

4

to Moor, FOUR, short and wide, Moor rises on his toes and pushes the drive in the gap square on the off-side. Off the mark with a boundary

OT

to Moor, no run, Moor has been given OUT LBW, he wants a review. It's a fair delivery, there's a big inside edge as well. The decision will be reversed. That's a good review from Moor, he smashed the leather off the ball onto his pads, drifter on off, Moor was half-forward as he pushed forward

6

to Raza, SIX, cracker, that's a shot of intent from Raza, deposits it straight into his team's dug-out. Fraction too short from , Raza was quick to latch onto it, shuffled across and pulls it high and over deep mid-wicket

4

to Raza, FOUR, lovely shot, Raza is out of his slumber, this was short and just outside off, he swivels across and pulls it over mid-wicket, couple of bounces and over the ropes

W

Islam to Moor, out Lbw!! Was it sliding down the leg-side? Not sure, at best could have been umpire's call. The partnership has been broken, this was the slider from , kept coming back with the angle. Moor lunged forward on the defensive push, ended up playing outside the line, the ball went past the inside edge and struck him low on the pads. The impact was in front of middle and leg, would have been hitting the leg-stump, umpire's call, says Hawk-Eye, but the original call would have stood. Moor lbw b Islam 14(42) [4s-1]

W

Islam to Waller, out Lbw!! Another LBW call and Waller wants a review. He sounded confident, is there any bat or glove on that? Need a look with the UltraEdge, taking a lot of time to build it. No edge and UltraEdge confirms it. Three REDS and Waller is OUT. Zimbabwe slip into amssive trouble now, this was tossed up on the stumps and straightened a bit, Waller was looking to play the lap sweep, the ball snck underneath and trapped him bang in front of middle, simple call for the umpire. is on a hat-trick. Waller lbw b Islam 0(1)

4

Islam to Cremer, FOUR, fraction short and Cremer slashes it away, uses the depth of the crease to create the length and the outside edge flies away to the right of slip, raced away to the fence

4

to Cremer, FOUR, thumped! Looked like Cremer was waiting for this back of a length delivery, became predictable there, Cremer stands tall and nails the pull in front of square. No one moved

4

Islam to Cremer, FOUR, "catch it" shouted someone, not sure who they were referring to. Rank long hop and Cremer muscles the pull over mid-wicket, nowhere close to the fielder and it goes on the bounce to the fielder

W

to Cremer, out Lbw!! Umpire Shamsuddin's finger was up in a flash. He was just waiting for the appeal and once went up, he obliged. Looked like a touch and go decision and it has gone in favour of Bangladesh. The nip-backer from , the length was touch short and he beat Cremer for pace, pinged above the kneeroll. The impact was not a problem as it was in front of middle. The issue was the height. HawkEye shows it to be kissing the leg-bail. So, it wouldn't have mattered if Zimbabwe had a review. Cremer lbw b 23(31) [4s-3]

4

to Raza, FOUR, is outsmarted. He thought the charge was on and dropped the length short, Raza hangs back in the crease and slaps it over extra cover, no chance for the man sweeping

4

to Raza, FOUR, welcome, mate! Puts on the dancing shoes and gives himself room as well, freed his arms and extended the off-drive over mid-off, one bounce and into the fence. Raza has certainly shifted gears

W

to Raza, out Bowled!! The Fizz has his man. There go Zimbabwe's hopes. Short of length and angled across off, Raza hops to counter the bounce, but closes the bat face aiming to nudge it into the on-side, that causes his undoing, the ball deflects onto the stumps off the inside edge, just enough for the leg-bail to fall of the groove. First wicket for and he's deserved that. Raza b 39(59) [4s-4 6s-1]

4

to Chatara, FOUR, edged and four. goes round the wicket and spears in the off-cutter, Chatara had no clue about that, prods forward to defend and the ball catches the outside edge, lands in front of Anamul at first slip and runs away

4

to Chatara, FOUR, flighted up outside off and Chatara takes the invitation, does not bother to get behind the line as he swings blindly, just about manages to clear the mid-on fielder

W

to Chatara, out Caught by Sabbir Rahman!! That ends Chatara's fun. He did almost everything right but picked out the best fielder in the Bangladeshi side. Shimmies down the wicket and gets close to the flighted delivery, goes through the line with the loft and places it wide of long-on. Sabbir runs around the circumference and takes it calmly. Chatara c Sabbir Rahman b 8(13) [4s-2]

4

to Jarvis, FOUR, clean strike! Full and on off, Jarvis plants his front leg forward and smashes it straight back past the bowler. Nice clean swing of the bat and he pockets a boundary

W

to Jarvis, out Caught by Mahmudullah!! Bangladesh win by 91 runs. Jarvis could not resist further. After having hit a boundary off the previous ball, he gets greedy and tries to repeat the shot, the off-cutter takes the splice of the bat and balloons to mid-off, where Mahmudullah claims the dolly. Jarvis c Mahmudullah b 10(19) [4s-1]

4

to Tamim, FOUR, firm drive down the ground. No hustle-bustle from Tamim. Waits for the ball to arrive and presents the straightest of bats to scorch it past the non-striker

W

to Anamul, out Lbw!! No surviving this time around. Plumb in front. Walks across against a fullish delivery and gets beaten on the inside edge, the sharp inward movement from would have crashed into middle and off. The umpire's finger was up in a flash. 'Hitting leg' reveals technology. Anamul lbw b 1(7)

4

to Tamim, FOUR, that's one heck of a shot. Not an easy one to play, but he did well to place it over the infield on the off-side. Short outside off, Tamim hops late, but his instinctive hands take over...flaying the ball over backward point with supreme ease

4

to Shakib, FOUR, just past the leaping hand of first slip. Full and swinging away outside off, Shakib drives with minimal feet movement and the edge flies to the left of the lone slip

4

to Shakib, FOUR, 128ks full pitcher and kaboom! Shakib had no second thoughts, as soon as he spotted the length, his bat and feet all were in perfect alignment to blaze the drive through extra cover

4

to Shakib, FOUR, he likes it full. Clobbers the front foot drive in the gap between extra cover and mid-off. Don't bother running

4

to Tamim, FOUR, these fuller length deliveries are proving to be batsman's oxygen on this track. Tamim presses across and drives on the up, placing the shot wide of a diving cover

4

to Tamim, FOUR, gets too straight and gets picked away for a boundary, Tamim ain't missing that pie on the pads. All he needed to do was get bat on ball. Ten out of ten

4

to Shakib, FOUR, right in the zone for Shakib. Gets forward a touch and lifts the drive over mid-off, hasn't got all of it, but there's enough power behind to go all the way

4

to Shakib, FOUR, short ball, top-edge, four. Shakib took his eyes off the ball as he was cramped for room - on the pull - and he ekes a thick edge that flies over the keeper in a flash

4

to Shakib, FOUR, fifty for Shakib, a boundary after a very long time for Bangladesh, this was dropped short and wide of off, Shakib backed away and cut it late, beat point to his left and rolled away to the fence, raises the 100-run stand as well

W

to Shakib, out Stumped!! Shakib loses his patience and his wicket! This was tossed up on off, Shakib came down the track, was looking to go inside out over cover, the ball dipped on him and then turned square, Shakib was nowhere near it, swung in hope and missed, easy stumping for Taylor. The dangerous stand has been broken, Zimbabwe badly needed this wicket. Shakib st Brendan Taylor b 51(80) [4s-6]

OT

to Tamim, 1 run, fifty for Tamim, his 41st in ODIs, this was tossed up on off, he leant forward and drove it wide of the bowler, was in the air for a while, but well wide of the bowler

6

to Rahim, SIX, lovely shot, the key was picking the length early, Rahim bent down low, gets underneath the ball and swings it behind square on the on-side, has enough to clear the ropes on the full

4

to Tamim, FOUR, cracking shot, too full and too wide from , Tamim gets a big stride forward and drills it through extra-cover, splits the gap between the two fielders in the deep to a nicety. 13 runs from the over

W

to Rahim, out Caught by Muzarabani!! A much needed wicket for Zimbabwe. Rahim had started positively but struggled against Muzarabani, he tries to take on the leggie and perishes. Looped up around off, Rahim goes for the pet shot - the sweep and the extra bounce on the surface meant the top-edge ballooned to short fine. A dolly for Muzarabani. Rahim practices the shot and rolls his wrists over, something that he should have done while playing the actual shot. Rahim c Muzarabani b 18(25) [6s-1]

4

to Tamim, FOUR, smashed! pitches it up and offers the space for Tamim to free his hands, he justs goes through the line and slams it wide of mid-on, couple of bounces and into the fence

W

to Mahmudullah, out Lbw!! Wicket right after drinks. Mahmudullah has a long chat with Tamim and decides against the review. The wrong 'un from , spins back into the right-hander, Mahmudullah prods forward and does not pick it, the bat is stuck behind the pad and he is struck in line with off-stump. The ball would have crashed into middle, no wonder umpire Shamsuddin had his finger up in a flash. Good start after the break. Mahmudullah lbw b 2(7)

W

to Tamim, out Stumped!! is on a roll. Three wickets in three overs for him. And who has he got? Rahim, Mahmudullah and Tamim. Huge. No hundred for Tamim once again. His last three scores have been: 84*, 84 and 76 today. Smart piece of bowling from , slipped in the googly and Tamim races past it, he wanted to loft it into the leg-side thinking it was the leg-break, but the ball spun away and Taylor makes no mistake. Tamim st Brendan Taylor b 76(105) [4s-6]

W

to Sabbir Rahman, out Caught by Craig Ervine!! Wow! That was a stunner from Ervine. cannot believe he's got a wicket with a nothing delivery. Bangladesh falling apart. Nothing but a back of a length delivery on off, Sabbir transfers his weight back and pulls it powerfully towards short mid-wicket, the ball was dipping and to the left of Ervine, who dives across and plucks it with one-hand. All this in one motion. What makes it stunning is, that ball was traveling and had almost gone past Ervine when he caught it. Sabbir Rahman c Craig Ervine b 6(11)

W

to Nasir Hossain, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! The Bangladeshi fans are stunned into silence. Clever bowling from . Rolled his fingers across the ball and gets enough assistance from the surface, the off-cutter bounces a tad more than what Hossain anticipated, catches the outside edge and nestles into the gloves of Taylor. He had to bend forward to take that catch and does it without any fuss. Bangladesh from 147/2 have slipped to 168/7. Nasir Hossain c Brendan Taylor b 2(8)

W

to Mortaza, out Caught by Brendan Taylor!! Another bites the dirt. 100th ODI wicket for . He becomes the fifth bowler from his country to reach the landmark. The leg-break was on a shortish length, Mortaza is not fully forward and leaves his bat dangling away from the body, the ball kisses the outside edge and Taylor does the rest. Fourth wicket for and he's put his side in the ascendancy. Can he get a fifer? Mortaza c Brendan Taylor b 0(8)

4

to Sunzamul Islam, FOUR, rare bad delivery from . Drags the length back and also offers width outside off, Islam cashes in, he goes back in the crease and cuts it past the point fielder. No one sweeping in the deep

4

to Sunzamul Islam, FOUR, edged and four. has himself to blame. Plenty of width on offer and Islam throws his bat at that, the outside edge races away fine beating the third man fielder

4

to Sunzamul Islam, FOUR, handy runs these. Floated up on off and middle, Islam goes down on one knee and nails the sweep square on the leg-side, bisecting the two fielders in the deep. ends a fine spell with figures: 10-0-32-4

W

to Sunzamul Islam, out Caught by Muzarabani!! Islam's gritty knock comes to an end. A terrific catch from Muzarabani and he makes amends for missing the run-out. Islam runs down the wicket and saw him coming, banged in short and Islam went for the pull, the top-edge flew towards short fine leg. Muzarabani was swirling under it and had to dive to his right to take that. Does well to pouch it with two hands. Sunzamul Islam c Muzarabani b 19(24) [4s-3]

4

to Mustafizur, FOUR, streaky! Mustafizur won't mind as it brings up the 200. Low dipping full toss, Mustafizur is into his swing early and the inside edge races past the leg-stump. Too quick for Taylor to react

6

to Rubel, SIX, wow! Look at Rubel. He holds his pose for the cameras. Absolutely nailed the straight loft. Full and in the slot, he clears his front leg and smacks it gun-barrel straight, pings the sightscreen with that big hit

4

to Mustafizur, FOUR, excellent end to the innings, 13 off the final over. Mustafizur outsmarts , he moves away and gets the bowler to follow him, then comes in line and whips it backward of square leg, couple of bounces and into the fence
