Zimbabwe tour of Bangladesh, 5th ODI: Bangladesh v Zimbabwe at Chittagong, Nov 5, 2009
Bangladesh won by 1 wicket (with 6 balls remaining)
5 November 2009 (50-over match)

Hello and welcome to the live coverage of the 5th and final ODI between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe.

News from the middle is that, Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan has won the toss and elected to field first.

Bangladesh have already rapped-up the series, an excellent comeback after losing the first game. Zimbabwe on the other hand have lot of areas to work on, last time they came out to bat they didn't even last 25 overs.

Bangladesh have made no changes to the team that played the last ODI. Zimbabwe have made two changes, Forster Mutizwa and Chris Mpofu are back in the playing eleven replacing Charles Coventry and Kyle Jarvis.

It's bit hazy this morning with the maximum temperature expected to be 30 degree Celsius.

It will be Masakadza and Vermeulen to open the innings, Nazmul Hossain to start proceedings. Here we go!

0.3

Nazmul Hossain to Masakadza, no run, on the middle and off stump line, defended stretching well forward and the ball rolls down to silly mid-on

0.4

Nazmul Hossain to Masakadza, no run, beaten! good length delivery, in the channel outside the off stump and shaping away a touch. Masakadza is sucked forward into the defensive prod and the ball zips past the outside edge. Well bowled

Abdur Razzak to share the new ball with Nazmul. Nothing surprising there

1.1

Abdur Razzak to Vermeulen, no run, flat delivery on the middle and off stump line, defended back down the track.

1.3

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, bit wide outside the off stump, edged past the diving slip fielder

1.4

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, drifitng down the leg side, this one kept on going with the arm - Masakadza looks to work it away on the leg side but fails to make contact and the ball rolls away off the pad. Half a shout for lbw turned down - was missing leg by a long way

1.5

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, left alone outside the off stump

1.6

2.2

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, bit wide outside the off stump, just enough to make Vermeulen push at it and the ball goes past the outside edge.

2.3

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, Inside edge onto the pad and the appeal is turned down. Pretty close if not for the wood.

Two slips in place

2.4

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, Once again Nazmul is right on the money - Vermeulen defends it back to the bowler

2.5

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, fuller length delivery outside the off stump, driven straight to the fielder at cover

2.6

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, short of a good length delivery and drifting on to middle and leg, Vermeulen looks to turn it away on the leg side but fails to make contact and the ball rolls away off the pad.

    • MA Vermeulen 1 (8b)
    • H Masakadza 0 (10b)
    • Nazmul Hossain 2-2-0-0
    • Abdur Razzak 1-0-1-0
3.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, FOUR, Masakadza comes down the track and lofts one over the mid-on fielder, that should break the shackles. Got to the pitch of the ball nicely and just hit through the line

3.2

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, cut away square on the off side

3.3

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, quicker delivery and driven straight to the fielder at cover

    • H Masakadza 4 (15b 1x4)

    • Abdur Razzak 2-1-5-0
4.1

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, comes forward and defends

4.2

4.3

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, fuller outside the off stump. Vermeulen stays rooted to the crease and defends

4.4

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, outside the off stump. Vermeulen looks to drive it away and is beaten

4.5

Nazmul Hossain to Vermeulen, no run, outside the off stump. Vermeulen moves across and drives it to cover but unconvincingly

4.6

End of over 5 (6 runs) Zimbabwe 11/0

    • MA Vermeulen 7 (15b 1x4)
    • H Masakadza 4 (15b 1x4)

5.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, no run, outside the off stump. Masakadza drives it to mid-off

5.2

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, 1 run, on the leg stump. Masakadza sweeps it away to fine-leg for a single

5.3

Abdur Razzak to Vermeulen, no run, that's dropped! Razzak induces the edge from Vermeulen, who has outstretched his bat out in defense. Rahim can't grab a straight-forward chance and Razzak can only sink his head into his hands in despair

5.4

Abdur Razzak to Vermeulen, OUT, and the drop off the previous ball does not count for much as Vermeulen looks to run the ball down to third man but only succeeds in edging it to first slip. It takes a diving effort from Junaid to hold onto the catch. Good catch that! Predictably the happiest man around is Rahim

MA Vermeulen c Junaid Siddique b Abdur Razzak 7 (21m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

Taylor is the new man in to join his captain Masakadza at the crease

5.5

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, no run, bowls an arm-ball to the new batsman, Taylor who does well to come down the track and defend it to mid-off

5.6

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, no run, and that's a quicker one to end the over with as Taylor lets it pass to the keeper

End of over 6 (1 run) Zimbabwe 12/1

    • BRM Taylor 0 (2b)
    • H Masakadza 5 (18b 1x4)
    • Abdur Razzak 3-1-6-1
6.1

Nazmul Hossain to Masakadza, no run, fuller on the off and middle. Masakadza comes forward and closes the face of the bat as he pushes it to the leg side

A false start for Nazmul

6.2

Nazmul Hossain to Masakadza, 1 run, fuller on the middle and leg. Masakadza whips it away to fine-leg for a single and gets off the strike

Commentators on air say that no Zimbabwean batsman has managed to score more than 50 after the first match but they are wrong as Masakadza did in the third match

6.3

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, gets to swing it in from outside the off stump. He pitches it short which makes Taylor's job easier in letting it pass to the keeper

6.4

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, outside the off stump and coming in. Pitches it on a shorter length once again as Taylor gets behind the line of the delivery and pushes it to point

6.5

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, pitches it on a good length outside the off stump and gets it to swing into the batsman. Taylor gets right behind the line of the delivery and defends it to the off side

6.6

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, Taylor is pretty circumspect to say the least as he gets onto the back foot to defend a fuller delivery to cover

End of over 7 (1 run) Zimbabwe 13/1

    • BRM Taylor 0 (6b)
    • H Masakadza 6 (20b 1x4)
    • Nazmul Hossain 4-2-7-0
7.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, 1 wide, and goes with the angle of the bowling arm and a bowls one down the leg side

7.1

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, FOUR, and now that's a gift hand-packed by Razzak as he pitches one short and wide outside the off stump. Masakadza picks the length early and is waiting on the back foot as he cuts it past the fielder at point for a boundary

7.2

Abdur Razzak to Masakadza, OUT, and "Junaid-man" is in action again as Razzak bowls one spinning away from the batsman. Masakadza is deceived in the flight as he comes down the track but decides to go through with the drive on the leg side. All he manages to get is an edge that flies fast to first slip where Junaid leaps across to his right and snips it mid-air. What a catch! and he has two of them to show off now

H Masakadza c Junaid Siddique b Abdur Razzak 10 (32m 22b 2x4 0x6) SR: 45.45

Chigumbara is the new man in

7.3

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, no run, fuller on the middle stump. Chigumbara gives it the full respect as he comes onto the front foot and defends it back to the bowler

7.4

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, 2 runs, goes short once again as Chigumbara forces it to sweeper cover for a couple and gets off the mark

7.5

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, FOUR, short of a good length delivery and Chigumbara is exceptional in picking the delivery as he punches it off the back foot through extra cover for a boundary. Chigumbara is off to an exceptional start now and Zimbabwe would want him to continue that

Dar and Enamul, the umpires in the middle are confused as they call it an over with one ball remaining but they realise it and call the players for one more ball

7.6

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, FOUR, over compensates by pitching it on the leg stump. Chigumbara goes down on one knee and powerfully sweeps it past fine-leg for a boundary

Mixed bag over this as Bangladesh get a wicket and also concede 15 runs off the over, which is more than half the total they have managed in the innings so far. The two wickets to fall have been because of superb efforts from Junaid

End of over 8 (15 runs) Zimbabwe 28/2

    • E Chigumbura 10 (4b 2x4)
    • BRM Taylor 0 (6b)
    • Abdur Razzak 4-1-21-2
8.1

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, ... and Taylor is still circumspect as he gets onto the back foot and pushes it back onto the pitch

8.2

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, no run, on the middle and leg. Taylor gets onto the front foot and closes the face of the bat as he pushes it to the leg side

8.3

Nazmul Hossain to Taylor, 1 run, and Taylor ensures that he does not get third duck for the series. He gets onto the back foot and turns away a short delivery to deep square-leg for a single

8.4

Nazmul Hossain to Chigumbura, no run, Nazmul seems to have found the right length to curtail the free scoring methods of the batsmen. He bowls one short on the middle and leg. Chigumbara gets onto the back foot and defends it on the leg side

8.5

Nazmul Hossain to Chigumbura, no run, outside the off stump and on a good length. Chigumbara initially thinks of letting the delivery pass but at the last moment decides to play it defensively to off-side

8.6

Nazmul Hossain to Chigumbura, no run, a classical defensive stroke to end the over with as Chigumbara comes forward and presses the ball back onto the pitch

End of over 9 (1 run) Zimbabwe 29/2

    • E Chigumbura 10 (7b 2x4)
    • BRM Taylor 1 (9b)
    • Nazmul Hossain 5-2-8-0
9.1

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, no run, good length delivery outside the off stump. Taylor is quick to get onto the back foot and defend it to short cover

9.2

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, FOUR, short outside the off stump. Taylor does not need any more invitation to unfurl the cut shot as he breaks the self-imposed shackles. Razzak is bowling pretty poorly compared to the lofty standards he has set in series

9.3

Abdur Razzak to Taylor, 1 run, and now that's a quick and a risky single. Taylor pushes a delivery on the middle stump to cover and sets off for a quick single. The fielder's throw is late in reaching Razzak as Taylor runs across

9.4

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, no run, outside the leg stump. Chigumbara thrusts his pad and forward and allows the ball to rap his pads. There is a muted appeal from the keeper

9.5

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, no run, outside the off stump. Chigumbara picks the line early but not the length as he looks to drive it away. The lack of bounce beats him

9.6

Abdur Razzak to Chigumbura, no run, arm-ball from outside the off stump. Chigumbara picks it and makes room for himself as he drives it away to mid-off

End of over 10 (5 runs) Zimbabwe 34/2

    • E Chigumbura 10 (10b 2x4)
    • BRM Taylor 6 (12b 1x4)
    • Abdur Razzak 5-1-26-2

11.2

Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, no run, arm-ball on the off and middle. Chigumbara comes forward and thrusts his front-foot out. It would have been going down the leg side

    • E Chigumbura 11 (15b 2x4)
    • BRM Taylor 9 (19b 1x4)
    • Shakib Al Hasan 1-0-3-0

12.2

12.3

Nazmul Hossain to Chigumbura, no run, good length delivery outside the off stump. Chigumbara comes forward and defends it to the off-side. Chigumbara is playing it sensibly now

12.5

End of over 13 (6 runs) Zimbabwe 44/2

    • E Chigumbura 16 (20b 3x4)
    • BRM Taylor 10 (20b 1x4)
    • Nazmul Hossain 7-2-15-0
13.1

Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, no run, outside the off stump and moving away from him. Chigumbara is playing for the angled delivery as he looks to defend it and is beaten

Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, no run, now the angled delivery comes and Chigumbara picks this comfortably and defends it back onto the pitch

13.3

13.6

Shakib Al Hasan to Chigumbura, no run, bowls with the angle once again as he looks to push it into the off side and the spin beats him. He is rapped on the pads. Keeper and the bowler go up in unison but the ball would have been going down the leg side

    • E Chigumbura 20 (26b 4x4)
    • BRM Taylor 10 (20b 1x4)

14.3

Enamul Haque jnr to Chigumbura, 1 run, on the leg stump. Chigumbara turns it away to short fine-leg and is pretty slow in responding to Taylor's call. Sloppy fielding by the fielder at short fine-leg allows him a single

14.5

Mahmudullah to Taylor, no run, wide outside the off stump, Taylor looks to tap it away fine but fails to make contact. So 19 taken off the last over and Zimbabwe finish on 221.

Excellent comeback by the Zimbabwean batsmen after that dismal performance in 4th ODI. Taylor paced his innings beautifully and played sensibly and his innings has given Zimbabwe a decent total.

We will be back in 40 minutes time with the run case, be sure to join us then.
