6.4

Rainsford to Aftab Ahmed, no run, good length delivery and that's defended once more

6.5

Rainsford to Aftab Ahmed, no run, played that one away from the body, a cut on the back foot but that goes straight to the man at point who gets his body behind it

6.6

Rainsford to Aftab Ahmed, no run, ooh! Another big appeal but that one's missing leg

Bangladesh 12/1   Aftab Ahmed 1* (7b)

7.5

Ireland to Aftab Ahmed, 1 run, a bit wayward down the leg side and that's tucked away with the batsman taking his bottom hand off the bat on the follow-through of that shot

9.1

Ireland to Aftab Ahmed, OUT, strangled down the leg-side and that's really very well held by Taylor, diving low to his left and getting his left glove underneath it to scoop it up. That's a good decision from the umpire to match; the batsman just getting a shade of glove on it. Zimbabwe's tails are up pretty early on indeed

Aftab Ahmed c †Taylor b Ireland 3 (20m 10b 0x4 0x6) SR: 30.00

Bangladesh 26/2   Aftab Ahmed 3 (10b)
