Scorecard

Zimbabwe A romped to a 2-1 series lead, after comfortably overhauling Bangladesh A's mediocre total with more than 16 overs to spare, at Queens Sports Club in Bulawayo. An opening stand of 141 between Terrance Duffin and Chamunorwa Chibhabha saw them most of the way towards their target before Duffin was stumped off Enamul Haque jnr, the highly promising left-arm spinner.

Bangladesh A never recovered from 10 for three early in their innings, after choosing to bat first. Bryan Strang, the left-arm seamer, bowled a very tight spell and also removed the top-score, Mahmudullah (30), to finish with 2 for 21. Innocent Chinyoka ensured there was no recovery with four wickets and only a last-wicket stand of 46 gave the score any semblance of respectability.
