Scorecard

It took just 2.3 overs for Zimbabweans on the final day to complete a victory against the Bangladesh Cricket Board Academy. Having made the perfect start to their tour of Bangladesh with a 195-run win in this three-day fixture, the Zimbabweans will now have their tails up for the upcoming tri-series involving the hosts and Sri Lanka.

Resuming on their overnight score of 107 for 8, Mithun Ali was out first ball, caught behind by Tatenda Taibu to give Ray Price a five-wicket haul. Rubel Hossain, who has been included in the 14-man Bangladesh squad for the tri-series and the three ODIs against Zimbabwe, did not last long either. He was dismissed in identical fashion, caught by Taibu, as Ray Price ended with 6 for 21 for the innings.

The first match of the tri-series gets underway on Saturday with Zimbabwe taking on Bangladesh.
