    4.3 chopped on! Tamim decided to cut a ball that barely had width and Zimbabwe benefit from his mistake. It was only mildly short, and he might have pulled some of the pace off it as well. The angled face came down as he hoped to sneak a few runs to third man. Ends up demolishing his stumps 8/1
    9.5 runs at the bowler and has given his wicket away! He was making room for himself and succeeded a little too well. Chatara had pulled his length back as well and the smear over the covers ends up becoming a slice that goes straight up in the air, The Zimbabwe captain comes in from mid-off and takes it quite well because there were a few contenders vying for that catch 26/2
    19.4 where was the need to play a shot like that? Runs away outside off to try and scoop over fine leg. The length was too full for him to get under, It was too close to off stump and he had left it quite open. Nyumbu says thank you very much and does a little jig 70/4
    11.4 gone.! Another false shot has bought his downfall. It was a length ball outside off, Mahmudullah on the front foot tried to clobber it over mid-on but finds Kamungozi 31/3
    43.2 runs down the track and launches a flighted ball straight down long-on's throat! Strikes it at the bottom of the bat so there is no timing on the stroke, even if there had been plenty of intent. Roars of 'Shakib, Shakib' follow him all the way through to the dressing room. 218/5
    47.2 fourth chance of the innings and Mushy finally falls! It was the slower ball, which he had looked to launch over long-off. Didn't get enough bat on it because of the length being so full and there being no width to free his arms. Still, he's played a very good hand for his team 246/6
    not out
    49.2 another pin-point yorker, so much that only the off bail leaps off it's perch with the one on leg stump staying put. Mashrafe was trying to squeeze it away through point but was too slow on it 264/7

    16.3 that's the big one! The bowling change has worked as Hami M is declared leg before! Mahmudullah moved around the wicket, pitched on middle and gets the ball to turn enough to hit him in front of middle. That's plumb! 92/3
    7.3 there it is! You cannot keep him out of the game as he dupes Raza in the flight and gets him out stumped! The batsman had wandered forward but Shakib had pulled his length back, and gave it a little extra rip to beat the prodding bat and topple an important wicket 47/1
    7.5 good length ball on middle, Sibanda has trusted a sweep but has top-edged it into the hands of short fine leg! There was no conviction behind the stroke, he simply wanted to get off strike and had chosen the wrong ball to hit across the line. Two wickets in the over then for Shakib 47/2
    29.4 ooooh, you little beauty! Mushy has pulled off a stunner to get rid of Taylor! This was an offcutter that held in the pitch and leaped up a little more than the batsman expected. He tried to run it down, but gets it a little too fine. Mushfiqur had stepped to his left, then flung himself to his right to grab a ball that had almost gone behind him! 146/5
    24.4 not this time! He's made Chakabva play all around a tossed up delivery. He was lunging forward and turned a relatively harmless delivery into a yorker and then played across the line to have his stumps rearranged 124/4
    33.1 hit straight to short cover and captain gets captain! It was a slower ball again, this one full enough to invite the drive and Chiggy doesn't keep it down. Zimbabwe are sinking, and Bangladesh are well on their way to their first win in 2014. Good time for drinks, no? 153/6
    35.4 that's three for Shakib as he breaks through Mire's defences. Not that he offered much with a slog sweep across the line of an arm ball. Too full for that shot, not enough room either and Zimbabwe are heading towards a tame end as Chittagong rejoices 168/7
    36.2 another Zimbabwe batsman perishes to the sweep. It seems to be a go to shot, but they are not picking the balls. It was quick, flat and full. Didn't allow him to time for the stroke and he has to walk back 170/8
    39.4 taken at slip, which means he is the 12th player in history to hit a ton and claim four or more wickets in the same ODI. It was full and pushed through on off stump, the drive he was hoping to entice came through and there was just enough turn for outside edge, which was safely snapped up 180/9
    42.1 one ball after Shakib's spell is done, Sunny cleans up Chatara to record Bangladesh's first win of 2014. It was a skidder, pitching on a good length and ripping through his defences. 194/10
