Second One-Day International

Bangladesh v Zimbabwe

Utpal Shuvro

At Chittagong, January 24, 2005. Zimbabwe won by 31 runs. Toss: Zimbabwe. One-day international debut: Enamul Haque, jun.

Matsikenyeri was run out off the first ball of the match, and Zimbabwe were a modest 153 for five in the 41st over, but a blistering stand of 84 in nine overs between Taibu and Chigumbura lifted them to a fighting total. They wrecked Mashrafe bin Mortaza's figures - his first six overs yielded only nine runs, his last three 32. As at Dhaka, Bangladesh were on course at 130 for two. Then Rogers ran out Habibul Bashar, backing up too far, and Hondo's next ball trapped Iqbal lbw. This began a collapse, and Rogers added two wickets to his run-out and his 66 with the bat.

Man of the Match: B. G. Rogers.
