Bangladesh A 258 (Nafees 97, Sibanda 5-55) and 172 for 6 dec (Ayub 53, Islam 50*) beat Zimbabwe A 132 (Shahadat 4-33, Jubair 4-49) and 180 (Chari 74, Sajib 5-75)
Bangladesh A completed a 2-0 series sweep against Zimbabwe A in the unofficial Test series, after winning by 118 runs on the final day in Fatullah. Saqlain Sajib was once again the catalyst behind the victory, as he picked up five wickets, taking his tally in the series to 21 after he had snared 15 wickets in the first match.
The hosts batted for an hour and 40 minutes, and after Naeem Islam reached his fifty, they declared the innings on 172 for 6, setting Zimbabwe A 299 for a win.
In the sixth over, the visitors' captain Vusi Sibanda got out to Sajib and the left-arm spinner soon followed it up with the wicket of Mark Vermeulen. Three more wickets fell before Zimbabwe A reached 100, but Brian Chari and Joylord Gumbie engineered a brief recovery by adding 58 for the sixth wicket.
Once Naeem took the wicket of Gumbie, Zimbabwe A soon folded, even though Chari went on to make 74 with two fours and three sixes. Legspinner Jubair Hossain finished with three wickets, while there was one each for Kamrul Islam Rabbi and Naeem.
Bangladesh and Zimbabwe will next play a three-match ODI series starting on September 28 in Fatullah.
