Raqibul helps Bangladesh level series

Bangladesh, with their backs to the wall, put in a much-improved performance to square the series 1-1 after edging past Zimbabwe by six wickets in Mirpur

Match Centre

A well deserved win for Bangladesh to level the series 1-1 even though they aloowed Zimbabwe to recover from 47/6. The bowling again was good but today the batsmen applied themselves a lot better to reach the target comfortably on a pitch that was not tailor made for batting. The surface did improve later in the day, but it was the way the batsmen applied themselves that saw them to the win. So the series is level and all to play for on Friday, please join us again for that.
