Bangladesh have posted an imposing score though their batsmen did get bogged down in the middle of the innings when Zimbabwe gave little away. Shakib played a potentially match-winning knock, cracking his third century, a ruthless one, to overturn any gains the Zimbabweans had made and was assisted well by Raqibul and Mushfiqur as the visitors took full toll in the final powerplay to put their team in an excellent position to take a 2-0 lead. But the pitch is a good one, and Zimbabwe need to be more attacking against the Bangladesh spin-threat to entertain any hopes of pulling off an unlikely win. Join us in about 35 minutes for the chase.
