Bangladesh in Zimbabwe T20I Series - 1st T20I

Zimbabwe v Bangladesh

Zimbabwe won by 6 runs

Bangladesh to open with spin. It's Sohag Gazi

Tahsn Chowdhury: "2 spinners , 3 pace bowlers, i think Bangladesh is playing 1 batsman short today and that is not a good decision."

So Ashraful's been dropped. Shamsur Rehman comes in. This is one of three changes for Bangladesh.

Nick: "Surprise decision by Brendon to bat first, I always though Zim are good chasers. Anyway lets see how it pans out. Batting line up looks good for Zim."

Shibli Saleheen: "Watching how Bangladesh play Test cricket, people think that they could be good in ODIs, When they play ODIs, people think that some of their batsmen are very good for Tests and others are very good for T20Is. Their T20I batting suggests they are good Test players. To improve they should understand which format they are currently playing."

Authentic: "Why not Ashraful?? Whats wrong with him?? Lat T20 bD played against Srilanka Ash scored 43 and got out by a funny decision from umpire. I think, I would never understand our team management's thinking :("

Here's the Zimbabwe line-up: B Taylor*†, T Chatara, H Masakadza,T Mutombodzi, T Panyangara, V Sibanda, S Raza, P Utseya, B Vitori, M Waller, S Williams

Bangladesh: M Rahim*†, A Razzak, Mahmudullah, N Hossain, S Islam, S Islam, S Rahman, S Al Hasan, S Gazi, T Iqbal, Z Rahman

Nick: "Mushi loses the toss again, I wonder how much part always losing the toss contributed to his resignation as Captain."

Shibli Saleheen: "Toss played vital role in every ODI game in this tour. Mushi should not be superstitious rather reconsider his decision of resigning captaincy."

Toss: Zimbabwe have won the toss and they are batting first.

Manik: "Mushi's bad luck continues. He lost the TOSS again!"

Interesting line from the preview: "Remarkably, for a young side with lots of trigger-happy batsmen, Bangladesh admittedly struggle in T20s." I was really surprised to see their form guide - five consecutive losses.

12.55pm: Good day everyone and welcome to the coverage of the first of two T20s between Zimbabwe and Bangladesh in Bulawayo. The toss is on in about five minutes or so.

In the meantime, you may read the preview by Mohammad Isam.

This should be an interesting chase. 169 seems competitive. The boundaries are shorter. No idea why Ziaur Rehman didn't bowl. Zimbabwe at one stage looked set for more. That final ball six will make them feel slightly better.

Early end to the innings because of the number of overs of spin. Join us shortly for the chase.

Uwaisul Karnain: "This is going to be an interesting run chase and Tamim, Shakib & Nasir hold the key for tigers."
