Bangladesh managed themselves to a fighting score of 220 runs. They had a good start but kept losing wickets at regular intervals in the middle overs. Good bowling from Mpofu and some excellent catching from the Zimbabweans kept the Bangladesh scoring in check. A good chance for Zimbabwe to fight back in the series. Please join us after the break
