Zimbabwe won by 7 wickets (with 35 balls remaining)
Played at Harare Sports Club
14 August 2011 (50-over match)

Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, no run, good line pretty soon from Mpofu, fuller and going across close to off stump, he plays it out to covers


Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, no run, even better now, this one holding its line from a length around off stump, he adjusts as it comes in and pushes back towards the bowler


Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, FOUR, that will go, Mpofu provides lots of width outside off on a length, sits up, and is spanked through cover


Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, 2 runs, more width, but a lot fuller, and Kayes goes after it, but the ball goes just over a leaping backward point


Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, no run, now he provides no width and the batsman is forced into playing in out on the leg side

Bangladesh 7/0   Imrul Kayes 6* (5b 1x4)

Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, lovely stuff from Vitori, this one nips in from a length close to off stump, left alone


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, moving away from outside off, similar to the one that Tamim went after, Kayes is wiser and shoulders arms


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, this one has to be played at, darted in with the angle fuller on off stump, and holding its line to beat Kayes as he pushes at it


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, just a touch outside off stump and he leaves it instantly as it moves away from a fullish length


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, 1 wide, down the leg side with the angle this time


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, another beauty, how do you deal with those, short of a length now and holding its line inches from off stump, you just push at those and hope you don't edge them, Kayes gets away again


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, fuller this time, he pushes it away watchfully with an open face to point

Bangladesh 15/1   Imrul Kayes 6* (11b 1x4)

Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, no run, again on the pads, but a touch slower and he can't time the attempted work off the hip

Bangladesh 20/1   Imrul Kayes 6* (12b 1x4)

Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, straightens a touch from a length outside off, Kayes comes forward nicely and pushes towards covers, he takes a step or two looking for the single, but there isn't any to be had


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, goes after a shortish and wide one that moves away, and gets it in the air but behind backward point, down to third man, there was no gully in place

Bangladesh 22/1   Imrul Kayes 7* (14b 1x4)

Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, 1 leg bye, Mpofu has struggled to keep up the pressure from the other end, moves in down the pads and rolls away behind square


Mpofu to Imrul Kayes, 1 run, now Kayes decides to push away from his body outside off, and it goes in the air too, but fortunately for him, wide of point

Bangladesh 26/2   Imrul Kayes 8* (16b 1x4)

Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, wants the single, but it isn't there at all, as he pushes off the front foot to cover


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, no run, forced from the crease off a length, but straight to point


Vitori to Imrul Kayes, OUT, suicidal tendencies spread through the Bangladesh line-up, this time Kayes thinks that a length delivery should be clattered through extra cover, he is nowhere to the pitch of the ball as he gets forward to thump it, and extra cover accepts the gift

Imrul Kayes c Masakadza b Vitori 8 (33m 19b 1x4 0x6) SR: 42.10

Bangladesh 26/3   Imrul Kayes 8 (19b 1x4)
