Tri-Nation Tournament in Bangladesh, 1st Match: Bangladesh v Zimbabwe at Dhaka, Jan 10, 2009
Zimbabwe won by 38 runs
10 January 2009 (50-over match)

Utseya to Junaid Siddique, OUT, not so sure if that was hitting the stumps, he delivers from round the wickets and gets the ball to drift away from the left-hander, Junaid gets forward and is hit on the pad but it didn't really look like hitting the offstump, no wonder Junaid was a little surprised at Doctrove's decison

Junaid Siddique lbw b Utseya 0 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 9/1   Tamim Iqbal 8* (6b 2x4)   P Utseya 0.2-0-0-1

Rainsford to Mushfiqur Rahim, OUT, Mushfiqur completely misjudges it! Rainsford lands it on a good length on the offstump and gets it to come back in, Mushfiqur shoulders arms and expects the ball to sail over the stumps but to his horror it clips the top of the offstump, excellent delivery to square him up and it's game on already at Mirpur

Mushfiqur Rahim b Rainsford 0 (5m 5b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Bangladesh 10/2   Tamim Iqbal 9* (8b 2x4)   EC Rainsford 1.3-0-10-1

Utseya to Tamim Iqbal, 1 run, OUT, terrible mixup and Tamim can't believe what has happened, ashraful gives the charge and scoops it just over short midwicket, the throw from long-on is fired to the keeper, Ashraful isn't interested in the extra run but fails to notice that Tamim's already half way down the pitch, Tamim has no time to turn around and he gives up thanks to the accuracy of the throw

Tamim Iqbal run out 13 (47m 40b 2x4 0x6) SR: 32.50

Bangladesh 32/3   Mohammad Ashraful 17* (19b 3x4)   P Utseya 5.1-3-6-1

Utseya to Mohammad Ashraful, OUT, now Ashraful goes and Bangladesh are in deep trouble, Ashraful gives him the charge and tries to clear long-on but fails to get the desired elevation, the ball dips on Sibanda and he manages to hang on to it very well on the dive

Mohammad Ashraful c Sibanda b Utseya 18 (37m 21b 3x4 0x6) SR: 85.71

Bangladesh 33/4   Shakib Al Hasan 1* (1b)   P Utseya 5.3-3-7-2

Dabengwa to Raqibul Hasan, OUT, that run-out miss didn't cost anything at all! He slips in a quicker one and Raqibul's beaten in flight as he gets forward to drive and the ball goes through straight and hits the stumps

Raqibul Hasan b Dabengwa 23 (55m 36b 2x4 0x6) SR: 63.88

Bangladesh 92/5   Shakib Al Hasan 35* (49b 3x4)   KM Dabengwa 5.3-0-15-1

Price to Mehrab Hossain jnr, OUT, Zimbabwe are clawing back and hard! Price teases him with flight and he gives him the charge and attempts to take him down town, he misses the ball completely and Taibu has the easiest of stumpings

Mehrab Hossain jnr st †Taibu b Price 2 (3m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00

Bangladesh 95/6   Shakib Al Hasan 36* (50b 3x4)   RW Price 2.2-0-8-1

Chigumbura to Shakib Al Hasan, OUT, the bowling change works, Chigumbura adjusts the line closer to the offstump, the ball kicks up a bit on Shakin who shapes to cut square but he only ends up getting a thick edge to Taibu

Shakib Al Hasan c †Taibu b Chigumbura 52 (91m 66b 3x4 0x6) SR: 78.78

Bangladesh 126/7   Naeem Islam 13* (32b 1x4)   E Chigumbura 0.2-0-3-1

Price to Naeem Islam, OUT, it's that man Chigumbura again! He taps it towards square leg and sets off for a quick single, Chigumbutra gathers and in one motion effects a direct hit and Mortaza is a yard short, excellent fielding, the third umpire takes a look

Mashrafe Mortaza run out 3 (14m 11b 0x4 0x6) SR: 27.27

Bangladesh 132/8   Naeem Islam 15* (41b 1x4)   RW Price 7.4-1-26-1

Chigumbura to Naeem Islam, OUT, another direct hit! He nudges it softly towards short midwicket and attempts a risky run, Williams gathers the ball and under arms the ball directly at the non-striker's end, the third umpire takes a look

Naeem Islam run out 21 (49m 52b 1x4 0x6) SR: 40.38

Bangladesh 146/9   Mahbubul Alam 5* (15b)   E Chigumbura 4-0-15-1

Price to Mahbubul Alam, OUT, and Zimbabwe win! Mahbubul tries to launch him downtown by stepping down the track, he fails to get the elevation to clear long-on and Matsikenyeri cups it just in front of the rope

Mahbubul Alam c Matsikenyeri b Price 22 (32m 28b 1x4 1x6) SR: 78.57

Bangladesh 167/10   Nazmul Hossain 3* (13b)   RW Price 9.2-1-35-2
