Bangladesh tour of Zimbabwe, 4th ODI: Zimbabwe v Bangladesh at Bulawayo, Aug 19, 2011
Bangladesh won by 6 wickets (with 80 balls remaining)
19 August 2011 (50-over match)

Shafiul Islam to Sibanda, OUT, Sibanda goes! By itself, he played a lovely shot there, going down on a knee and square-driving with style. Unfortunately, Shafiul got this to deviate just enough to kiss the outside edge and fly to the right of Mushfiqur who tumbles away and takes it. Muted celebrations from Bangladesh as Vusi walks off.

V Sibanda c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shafiul Islam 18 (32m 24b 4x4 0x6) SR: 75.00

Zimbabwe 40/1   BRM Taylor 21* (29b 3x4)   Shafiul Islam 4.5-0-22-1

Mahmudullah to Masakadza, OUT, what a strange dismissal! Masakadza is gone for a duck. Easily the worst ball of the over. It was short, it angled in towards leg stump and then turned further away. Masakadza could have easily let it go. But he chose to attempt a paddle-pull-sweep of sorts. He went really hard at it, even as Mushfiqur quickly moved to his left to cover the line. Did he nick it? Must have been a feather at best. Mushfiqur went up in a huge appeal as soon as he caught it. His vocal chords were in trouble by the time the umpire Chirombe decided to give it out.

H Masakadza c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahmudullah 0 (15m 6b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 53/2   BRM Taylor 33* (47b 5x4)   Mahmudullah 0.5-0-2-1

Shakib Al Hasan to Taibu, OUT, suicide! Taibu is gone at the stroke of drinks, lurching up and down the track like a man already very drunk. Short ball outside off, Taibu cuts it to the left of Nasir at cover and bounds out like an energiser bunny. Taylor wasn't fully sold on the idea, Taibu hesitated, then started again and was near the middle of the pitch by the time Nasir had the ball after diving away, and lined up a throw to Mushfiqur. Taibu eventually tried to get back in, but it was too late.

T Taibu run out 7 (15m 16b 1x4 0x6) SR: 43.75

Zimbabwe 69/3   BRM Taylor 40* (60b 5x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 0.4-0-1-0

Shakib Al Hasan to Mutizwa, OUT, Shakib has been bowling all sorts of things today, every other ball is a variation! This was the classic left-armer's dismissal, a slow drifting left-arm spinner than curled in towards off stump before landing short of a length and breaking away. Mutizwa was sucked into the drive and got a feather through to Mushfiqur who again takes it and yells in joy.

F Mutizwa c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Shakib Al Hasan 9 (16m 15b 1x4 0x6) SR: 60.00

Zimbabwe 89/4   BRM Taylor 49* (69b 5x4)   Shakib Al Hasan 2.4-0-13-1

Rubel Hossain to Chigumbura, OUT, Elton's stay ends. He's sleep-walked through this innings. That's the first real shot of intent he's played today, and he's holed out. Short ball angling in, it was there to be carted away, and he took on the man at deep midwicket. He could not clear him though, and Nasir, as we all know, is a really good fielder.

E Chigumbura c Nasir Hossain b Rubel Hossain 31 (74m 65b 1x4 0x6) SR: 47.69

Zimbabwe 183/5   BRM Taylor 106* (135b 7x4 1x6)   Rubel Hossain 6.3-0-28-1

Rubel Hossain to Taylor, OUT, The Batting Powerplay strikes twice! Taylor is gone now, and that's a huge wicket for Bangladesh. Full from Rubel, but angling in towards middle and leg. So unlike the first ball of the over, when he went over mid-on, he was forced to go over the leg side. He ends up holing out to long-on running forward and to his right to take a really good low, tumbling catch inches from the ground.

BRM Taylor c Mahmudullah b Rubel Hossain 106 (156m 137b 7x4 1x6) SR: 77.37

Zimbabwe 184/6   MN Waller 0* (0b)   Rubel Hossain 6.5-0-29-2

Rubel Hossain to Waller, OUT, Waller is out hit wicket! Today's been a day for strange dismissals, and here's the strangest of them all. It was the surprise effort bouncer from Rubel, Waller was clearly late in spotting it and played an ungainly late pull, that was more of a waft in front of his face even as he went back in the crease. He ended up hitting the stumps with the bat as he played that pull ...

MN Waller hit wicket b Rubel Hossain 12 (10m 9b 1x4 1x6) SR: 133.33

Zimbabwe 196/7   P Utseya 0* (0b)   Rubel Hossain 7.2-0-30-3

Rubel Hossain to Price, OUT, implosion central at Bulawayo. The umpires are having another look, but Price might be on the way here. Short of a length outside off, it holds its line, doesn't do much off the strip as Price pokes at it from the crease. Thick outside edge taken, and Mushfiqur does extremely well to dive away and pluck it as he tumbles. Not sure what the umpires were checking for there. Straightforward dismissal that.

RW Price c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Rubel Hossain 0 (2m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 196/8   P Utseya 0* (0b)   Rubel Hossain 7.4-0-30-4

Shafiul Islam to Utseya, OUT, Utseya doesn't prosper! Zim have lost five wickets in the last ten minutes or so. What an ugly heave across the line too. Shafiul kept it straight and on a length, hoping that Utseya would miss it and the batsman obliges with a blind slog that middles the air, and nothing else. Nine down.

P Utseya b Shafiul Islam 0 (15m 3b 0x4 0x6) SR: 0.00

Zimbabwe 196/9   KM Jarvis 0* (2b)   Shafiul Islam 9.3-0-46-2

Abdur Razzak to Jarvis, OUT, all over. That's the end of Zimbabwe's innings, and they have capsized from a potential 250 total to 199. Nothing stroke from Jarvis, looks to make room and cart Razzak over the covers. He misses, Razzak hits.

KM Jarvis b Abdur Razzak 1 (11m 8b 0x4 0x6) SR: 12.50

Zimbabwe 199/10   CB Mpofu 1* (5b)   Abdur Razzak 9.2-0-31-1
