Played at Harare Sports Club
21 June 2012 (20-over match)

Elias Sunny to Masakadza, OUT, how did that happen? Masakadza moved his feet and drove that on the on-side, straight to the fielder. Masakadza sets off for the run, Sibanda doesn't have the time to say no and he is found well short of his crease. Silly error from the openers, who did so well yesterday.

V Sibanda run out 12 (12m 10b 2x4 0x6) SR: 120.00

Zimbabwe XI 22/1   H Masakadza 10* (9b 2x4)   Elias Sunny 0.2-0-4-0

Ziaur Rahman to Taylor, OUT, Perhaps not a wicket Rahman deserved, too full again and Taylor seems to got a bit lazy, gets under it, spoons towards mid-on, where two fielders close in on it. Mahmudullah is the one who takes the catch and Taylor is livid. Smashes his bat into the ground and he did not need to do that, did he? Rahman redeemed.

BRM Taylor c Mahmudullah b Ziaur Rahman 27 (22m 13b 3x4 2x6) SR: 207.69

Zimbabwe XI 70/2   H Masakadza 29* (29b 5x4)   Ziaur Rahman 0.4-0-17-1

Mahmudullah to Ervine, OUT, oh dear, Craig Ervine! Mahmudullah bowls the arm ball and Ervine plays down the wrong line, looking for the turn and that's through the gap between bat and pad. Bowled! Bangladesh have created an opening now.

CR Ervine b Mahmudullah 0 (3m 1b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe XI 74/3   H Masakadza 33* (33b 5x4)   Mahmudullah 0.3-0-3-1

Elias Sunny to Matsikenyeri, OUT, Matsikenyeri goes forward, on one knee, and lofts that to long-on. Mortaza seems to be lumbering but he gets to it just fine and takes a good catch.

S Matsikenyeri c Mashrafe Mortaza b Elias Sunny 27 (32m 23b 1x4 1x6) SR: 117.39

Zimbabwe XI 125/4   H Masakadza 54* (50b 5x4 1x6)   Elias Sunny 3.1-0-24-1

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

Zimbabwe XI 128/5   E Chigumbura 1* (2b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 2.1-0-12-1

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

Zimbabwe XI 132/6   AG Cremer 4* (1b 1x4)   Mashrafe Mortaza 2.3-0-16-1

Abul Hasan to Utseya, OUT, all coming apart now for Zimbabwe. Slower ball again and Utseya plays too early, gets a top-edge and Hasan has to backpedal and turn around to take the catch but he does so with ease

P Utseya c & b Abul Hasan 3 (5m 4b 0x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Zimbabwe XI 137/7   AG Cremer 6* (5b 1x4)   Abul Hasan 2.4-0-23-1

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

Zimbabwe XI 145/8   KM Jarvis 3* (3b)   Mashrafe Mortaza 3.5-0-24-2
