Scorecard

Zimbabwe started their tour of Bangladesh on a disappointing note, losing to Bangladesh Cricket Board XI by four wickets in Fatullah. Faisal Hossain starred for the home team, making an unbeaten 81, and adding 85 for the seventh wicket with wicketkeeper Shahgir Hossain to see his team through. BCB XI were struggling at 122 for 6 in their chase of 207 - Justice Chibhabha had rocked them with a three-for - but Faisal and Shahgir stepped up to the challenge, ensuring a win comfortably in the end as their team overhauled the target with more than five overs to spare.

Tareq Aziz and Talha Jubair had earlier restricted Zimbabwe to a chaseable score, taking three wickets each. Wicketkeeper Tatenda Taibu top scored with 62, but was short of support from the lower order. Zimbabwe collapsed to lose their last seven wickets for 78 runs, and will regret they lasted only 42 overs.
