Bangladesh shock Pakistan with one-wicket win

Cricinfo staff

Bangladesh gained their second win in two days with a thrilling one-wicket victory over the in-form Pakistan side. Pakistan posted a testing 252, but Bangladesh did well after an opening stand of 130. Ali Khan top-scored with 75 off 95 balls, while Showardhi Shuvo was the pick of the attack with 4 for 52. Tamim Khan launched Bangladesh's reply in style with 61 from 63 balls, to follow is 60 against Zimbabwe. Then Shuvo showed his all round pedigree by blasting 67 off 62 balls to carry his team to the narrowest of wins.

Gaurav Dhiman struck his second century in two matches as India comfortably dispatched Zimbabwe by 94 runs. Dhiman stroked his way to 108 off 99 balls, with eight fours and two sixes, as India posted a challenging 249 for 8. Zimbabwe never threatened to get close to the target despite Tafadzwa Mufambisi's 57. Mufambisi already has a first-class century despite being just 18 and this was another example of his promise. All the Indian bowlers chipped in but Saurav Bandekar was the pick with 4 for 33.

Sri Lanka were the other winners in the latest day of action as they overcame a below-par South Africa team. The Sri Lanka attack skittled the South African batting for just 123 before knocking off the runs with 21 overs to spare.
