There it is! Bangladesh have completed a 5-0 humiliation of Zimbabwe as they win this game by a margin of five wickets!

Bangladesh are cruising to a win and a clean sweep unless they lose few more wickets and land up in trouble. 17 runs needed now.
OUT!!!! It’s the skipper, Mushfiqur Rahim who departs for just 11 as Bangladesh lose half of their side while chasing just 129. However, they are pretty near to chase it down as they need 35 from 31 overs.
OUT! Mushfiqur Rahim 11(23) c Taylor b Chatara

Bangladesh are off to a shaky start but somehow manage to hold on to their grip and the gameplay as they look to chase down a real small total of 129 set by Zimbabwe after a disastrous batting display as both the team go in for lunch.

GONE!!!!! It’s the big one. It’s Shakib Al Hasan who departs without scoring anything. Full and wide from Panyangara, Shakib goes for a drive, edges it to first slip.
OUT! Shakib Al Hasan 0(8) c Masakadza b Panyangara


THIS IS GOING DOWN TO THE WIRE!!!! Bangladesh have lost three wickets within their powerplay phase of the opening 10 overs. with openers Tamim and Anamul along with Soumya Sarkar, all departing for 10, 8 and 20 respectively.
OUT! Tamim Iqbal 10(18) c Mire b Panyangara, Anamul Haque 8(25) c Masakadza b Chatara, Soumya Sarkar 20(30) c Sikandar Raza b Chatara


GOODNESS ME!!!!! What’s happening here!!!!!! From 95 for the loss of one to 120 for the loss of seven! They seem to just giving it up and gifting it to Bangladesh. Maruma, Mire and Panyangara all dismissed on a trot.
OUT! Timycen Maruma 1(9) b Jubair, Solomon Mire 9(16) lbw b Taijul, Tinashe Panyangara 0(5) b Taijul


GONE!!!!!!! Two more wickets in the form of skipper, Brendan Taylor and good going man, Vusi Sibanda being dismissed for nine and 37 respectively. Solomon Mire and Timycen Maruma make their way in.
OUT! Brendan Taylor 9(11) b Hasan, Vusi Sibanda c Mortaza b Hasan


GONE!!!!!!! It’s the big man, Hamilton Masakadza who doesn’t last long and quickly departs after scoring his 25th ODI fifty and doesn’t last long to convert it to a big one. It’s skipper, Brendan Taylor who makes his way in.
OUT! Hamilton Masakadza 52(54) b Jubair Hossain

No harm done after an early setback to Zimbabwe in the form of Sikandar Raza as Sibanda and Masakdza are on a roll and near a 50-runpartnership for the second wicket. 50 comes up for the team as well.


GONE!!!!!! First breakthrough for Bangladesh and it’s Sikandar Raza who depart for a cheap nine of 14 deliveries. Outside off, Raza looks to play towards third man and edges it to keeper. Masakadza however looks on a roll here hitting boundaries all over the park.
OUT! Sikandar Raza 9(14) c Rahim b Mortaza

Sensible start to the Zimbabwean innings as openers Sikandar Raza and Hamilton Masakadza start off in a good fashion with three boundaries in the opening couple of overs.
