Bangladesh lost their fourth wicket for 70 runs, with Mominul Haque departing for a score of 36 from 48 balls, getting his stumps rattled off the bowling of John Nyumbu in the first game of the five-match One-Day International (ODI) series against Zimbabwe at the Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong on Friday. With Haque’s dismissal, Bangladesh lost their top four batsmen without scoring much runs, and have left the middle-order with the burden of guiding the side to a respectable total if they are to maintain their winning ways

Zimbabwe had earlier won the toss and elected to bat first. Bangladesh decided top award legspinner his maiden ODI cap and medium-pacer Al-Amin Hossain made his way back in to the side after getting his action cleared by International Cricket Council (ICC). Zimbabwe, on the other hand, decided to field debutant Solomon Mire. Both teams have a captain different from the Test one, with Mashrafe Mortaza and Elton Chigumbura taking over the reigns from Mushfiqur Rahim and Brendan Taylor for Bangladesh and Zimbabwe respectively.
