Bangladesh reached to 56 for no loss at the end of 15 overs of play in the second One-Day International (ODI) played against Zimbabwe at Chittagong on Sunday. Tafadzwa Kamungozi and John Nyumbu kept it tight for five overs as they only leaked 14 runs.They both bowled to tight lines but still couldn’t manage to get the breakthrough.

It was a bit of rusty play from Bangladesh openers as they didn’t rotate the strike and relied on occasional boundaries for runs. Kamungozi, the leg-spinner was introduced in the ninth over of the match.  Panyangara and Chatara opened the bowling for Zimbabwe. There were three boundaries struck in the first five overs- two by Anamul Haque and one by Tamim Iqbal.

Earlier, Bangladesh won the toss and opted to bat first. The match was was started a bit early due to the due factor. Both teams fielded an unchanged squad for this ODI. Bangladesh are already 1-0 up in the five-match ODI series. Bangladesh also won the Test series 3-0.
