    0.1 Mupariwa has struck gold first ball. It was a lovely curving delivery around the off stump, Tamim stabbed it, without moving his feet, straight to first slip. Mupariwa celebrates as if he is rocking a baby. Memories of Bebeto, Romario from the World Cup football. Here we go. What a start. 0/1
    1.3 Two down now! What a start for Zimbabwe. Naeem, the pinch hitter, backed outside leg stump and went for the good-old slog - he pulled off similar shots in the first ODI - but missed it completely. The stump has gone for a walk. 8/2
    4.1 Ashraful combusts spectacularly. He ran down the wicket and tried to slash it over covers but the ball flew off the outside edge straight down to third man. Three down and the Bangladesh boat is rocking. And so is Mupariwa. 16/3
    32.1 Masakadza ends Raqibul's superb resistance. It was full and straight, Raqibul tried to repeat the six from the earlier over as he went for another big swing towards midwicket but couldn't get any wood on leather. Clatter! 173/7
    7.4 But not this time. Another across-the-line swing attempted but unlike previous delivery, he had to fetch it from outside-off and only succeeded in spooning a dolly to backward point. Huge huge blow this. Shakib, the man in form, departs. 39/4
    20.4 Price gets a wicket for his fine bowling. Again, tossed up, loopy delivery luring Rahim down the track and he hit it straight down to long-on. Reward for some good bowling. Five down now and tottering ... 107/5
    26.1 Price takes out another. The wheels are coming off. It was another nice tempting loopy flighted delivery, he went down the track but ended up chipping it straight to long-off. 131/6
    41.3 And then they were two. Mehrab couldn't keep his drive down and Vermeulen swoops low at short extra-cover to pluck the catch. 238/8
    44.2 Rock the baby Mupariwa! He produces another edge as the batsman goes for a similar slog and this time it settles down safely at backward point. Zimbabwe have won their first game of the series. Remember, Bangladesh have already won two. Game on now. 254/10
    43.1 Price cleans him up with the arm-ball. He was clueless as he went back and stabbed outside the line of the ball. The off stump was pegged back and Zimbabwe are just a wicket away from getting their first win of the series. 248/9
