Match Notes

  • 'We enjoyed the batting' - Mehrab

    Mehrab Hossain jr, one half of Bangladesh's newest opening pair, is confident of his rapport with Shahriar Nafees

  • Nafees and Mehrab set up easy win

    A flamboyant half-century from Shahriar Nafees plus a more sedate contribution from Mehrab Hossain guided Bangladesh to a comfortable six-wicket victory over Zimbabwe, in the second one-day international at Bogra, and a 2-0 series lead

  • Bashar taking nothing for granted

    Habibul Bashar, Bangladesh's captain, is keen to continue his side's form over Zimbabwe in the second one-day international at Bogra

  • Struggling Zimbabwe make three changes

    Fast bowler Ed Rainsford has earned an immediate recall after being named in the starting line-up for Zimbabwe's second ODI against Bangladesh in Bogra on Sunday
