View dismissal MA Vermeulen c Mahmudullah b Mahbubul Alam 11 16 18 2 0 61.11
3.6 What a soft dismissal. Vermeulen, who was looking so good, is gone. It was full and slipping to the legs, it could have been on driven anywhere but Vermeulen flicked it straight to short midwicket. 17/2
View dismissal V Sibanda c †Mushfiqur Rahim b Mahbubul Alam 0 4 2 0 0 0.00
1.4 Wow! what a delivery. Don't blame Sibanda for edging it. It curved away late from a good length and clipped the outer edge as Sibanda pushed at it; he had to play at it. It did just enough to get the edge. There is no use getting dramatic big movement and missing the bat. Perfect delivery. 6/1
View dismissal H Masakadza b Syed Rasel 102 129 112 4 2 91.07
38.6 Rasel cleans him up with a slower one. His special- the off cutter. Masakadza shaped for the big slog across the line but was beaten by the lack of pace. Fine innings comes to an end. A very good partnership with Taylor. 202/4
View dismissal CK Coventry run out (Mehrab Hossain jnr/†Mushfiqur Rahim) 22 31 20 3 1 110.00
11.2 from Enamul Haque jnr, What a mess. What terrible misunderstanding between the two. It was flicked past square leg and the fielder (Mehrab) ran in from deep square leg. Clearly they had to stop at a single as they never seemed sure of the second. But they turned for the second run, hesitated mid-way, tried to carry on forward but too late folks. The throw was accurate and Rahim whips off the bails in glee. Gone! 60/3
View dismissal BRM Taylor run out (Raqibul Hasan/†Mushfiqur Rahim) 94 116 103 2 1 91.26
47.2 from Shakib Al Hasan, Taylor is run out, going for the second run. It was pushed towards long-off and Chigumbura pushed for the second run. Taylor rushed across and even tried to dive into the crease but the throw was accurate and fast and Rahim did the rest. A very fine knock from Taylor comes to an end. 292/5

View dismissal S Matsikenyeri c Tamim Iqbal b Shakib Al Hasan 23 8 9 0 2 255.55
49.2 And he is gone now. He tries to slog sweep from outside off stump but gets a leading edge and presents a dolly to short third-man fielder. Handy little innings, though. 319/6
View dismissal MN Waller c Mehrab Hossain jnr b Shakib Al Hasan 2 1 2 0 0 100.00
49.5 Shakib gets one more wicket. Another slog sweep attempted, another edge, and it's caught at midwicket 322/7

View dismissal Tamim Iqbal c Vermeulen b Mupariwa 0 1 1 0 0 0.00
0.1 Mupariwa has struck gold first ball. It was a lovely curving delivery around the off stump, Tamim stabbed it, without moving his feet, straight to first slip. Mupariwa celebrates as if he is rocking a baby. Memories of Bebeto, Romario from the World Cup football. Here we go. What a start. 0/1
View dismissal Naeem Islam b Chigumbura 4 7 3 1 0 133.33
1.3 Two down now! What a start for Zimbabwe. Naeem, the pinch hitter, backed outside leg stump and went for the good-old slog - he pulled off similar shots in the first ODI - but missed it completely. The stump has gone for a walk. 8/2
View dismissal Mohammad Ashraful c Masakadza b Mupariwa 9 14 15 1 0 60.00
4.1 Ashraful combusts spectacularly. He ran down the wicket and tried to slash it over covers but the ball flew off the outside edge straight down to third man. Three down and the Bangladesh boat is rocking. And so is Mupariwa. 16/3
View dismissal Raqibul Hasan b Masakadza 78 113 83 4 2 93.97
32.1 Masakadza ends Raqibul's superb resistance. It was full and straight, Raqibul tried to repeat the six from the earlier over as he went for another big swing towards midwicket but couldn't get any wood on leather. Clatter! 173/7
View dismissal Shakib Al Hasan* c Sibanda b Chigumbura 17 17 15 1 1 113.33
7.4 But not this time. Another across-the-line swing attempted but unlike previous delivery, he had to fetch it from outside-off and only succeeded in spooning a dolly to backward point. Huge huge blow this. Shakib, the man in form, departs. 39/4
View dismissal Mushfiqur Rahim c Coventry b Price 33 45 39 2 1 84.61
20.4 Price gets a wicket for his fine bowling. Again, tossed up, loopy delivery luring Rahim down the track and he hit it straight down to long-on. Reward for some good bowling. Five down now and tottering ... 107/5
View dismissal Mahmudullah c Masakadza b Price 14 14 19 0 0 73.68
26.1 Price takes out another. The wheels are coming off. It was another nice tempting loopy flighted delivery, he went down the track but ended up chipping it straight to long-off. 131/6
View dismissal Mehrab Hossain jnr c Vermeulen b Utseya 25 56 40 1 0 62.50
41.3 And then they were two. Mehrab couldn't keep his drive down and Vermeulen swoops low at short extra-cover to pluck the catch. 238/8
View dismissal Mahbubul Alam c Vermeulen b Mupariwa 59 49 43 2 3 137.20
44.2 Rock the baby Mupariwa! He produces another edge as the batsman goes for a similar slog and this time it settles down safely at backward point. Zimbabwe have won their first game of the series. Remember, Bangladesh have already won two. Game on now. 254/10
View dismissal Enamul Haque jnr b Price 3 3 6 0 0 50.00
43.1 Price cleans him up with the arm-ball. He was clueless as he went back and stabbed outside the line of the ball. The off stump was pegged back and Zimbabwe are just a wicket away from getting their first win of the series. 248/9
