Bulawayo: May 12, 2013
 
Bangladesh reached 168 for seven in their 20 overs against Zimbabwe in the second T20 International at Bulawayo on Sunday.

Bangladesh skipper Mushfiqur Rahim won the toss and elected to bat first. His move seemed to have backfired as Prosper Utseya dismissed opener Shasur Rahaman in the first over of the match itserlf.

However, Shakib-ul-Hasan and Tamim Iqbal took the Zimbabwean bowling apart scoring 82 off just 49 deliveries for the second wicket.

The other batsmen also joined in and scored runs at a fast clip. However, after scoring over 100 runs in the first 11 overs, one would have fancied Bangladesh to cross 200.

Brief Scores: Bangladesh 168 for 7 in 20 overs (Tamim Iqbal 43, Shakib-al-Hasan 40; Prosper Utseya 2 for 15) vs Zimbabwe
