Brian Vitori becomes only the seventh bowler to take a five-for on ODI debut. Not bad at all for a bowler who wasn't rated at all by the opposition's best batsman. He got him today as well, and but for a 105-run sixth-wicket stand between Shakib and Rahim, Bangladesh would have struggled to reach 150. They fell just when Bangladesh were looking to launch in to the final onslaught though, and that is why it never came. Zimbabwe will back themselves to chase 185. Join us in 35 minutes for the chase

Liberty: "Zim has got a gem in Vitori i am sure with Streaky around him he is destined for dizzy heights!"

Mpofu to Sohrawordi Shuvo, 1 run, OUT, that is the end of the innings, there was never going to be a second run, it was worked in front of square leg, they were looking to get Shuvo back on strike, but the man from square leg got quickly to the ball, put in the slide and fired in the throw to Taibu, who did the rest, Rubel tried to get back but he was already half way down the track for the second and was never going to make it back

Rubel Hossain run out (Utseya/†Taibu) 1 (5m 2b 0x4 0x6) SR: 50.00
