Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, no run, nice and full, Masakadza can't get it away


Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, 2 runs, in the air, but safe. The man at cover went right, the ball went left. Drives a full and wide one, but the Masakadza was intending to hit through mid-off and gets the edge


Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, no run, short but no width at all, Maskadza is into the pull early and is lucky no to play on


Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, 1 run, delicate, guided down to third man, there's a fielder there, but its a soft touch from the batsman and there's a run


Mashrafe Mortaza to Taylor, no run, good length, directed at Taylor's body, in two minds about where to move as the ball comes into him and he ends up defending awkwardly


Mashrafe Mortaza to Taylor, 1 run, holds its line now, good length outside off and jabbed down next to the pitch for Taylor to keep strike

Zimbabwe XI 44/1   Mashrafe Mortaza 2-0-12-0

Mashrafe Mortaza to Masakadza, OUT, Bangladesh coming back again. Slower ball from Mortaza, wide as well and Masakadza wanted to throw everything at that. Gets an edge and Mushfiqur takes a simple catch to end his innings. Zimbabwe will stop matters from unraveling here.

H Masakadza c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mashrafe Mortaza 56 (76m 54b 5x4 1x6) SR: 103.70


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, FOUR, oh hello! Cremer cuts the nicely, short from Mortaza and wide too and he gets that past the inner ring and four


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, OUT, Chigs has been run out! Short again from Mortaza and pulled away by Cremer, excellent fielding at mid-wicket, its Anamul Haque there, he puts in the dive and gets the ball one-handed. The throw is good too, comes in flat and fast and Chigs is a few centimetres short of the line. Big blow for Zimbabwe, Bangladesh have fought back well.

E Chigumbura run out 1 (6m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00


Mashrafe Mortaza to Utseya, 1 run, short and pulled, beats Hossain this time but he acts out a clever dummy to keep it down to one


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, 1 run, Bangladesh have found new life it seems, carved through the offside and a diving save to prevent any leakage


Mashrafe Mortaza to Utseya, 1 run, a superb over for Bangladesh, two wickets in there and just a few singles. This could prove vital for later on.

Mashrafe Mortaza to Jarvis, 1 run, pushed into the off-side


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, 1 run, one-handed smack from Cremer, take the bottom-hand off the bat and gives it everything, it beats the ring but there's protection on the boundary. Jarvis wants two, Cremer says no


Mashrafe Mortaza to Jarvis, 1 run, Jarvis has to hold his own here, drives to mid-off to get Cremer back on strike


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, 2 runs, short and Cremer lashed out, its in the air over mid-wicket but again, not enough on it to get over the rope


Mashrafe Mortaza to Cremer, OUT, Another wicket for Bangladesh! Full and Cremer gets under it. He had to do it, as he looked for the boundary. It was high but didn't have the legs and settles with Anamul Haque at deep mid-wicket. Excellent comeback from Bangladesh

AG Cremer c Anamul Haque b Mashrafe Mortaza 10 (13m 9b 1x4 0x6) SR: 111.11
