    1.1 would you believe it, wicket first ball for Taijul and the crowd erupts! It was tossed up around middle and off, Taylor went for the slog sweep first up but seemed to have misjudged the length which was slightly shorter than he would have liked, the extra bounce induced the top edge, taken easily at short third man. Poor shot, it has to be said 7/1
    7.5 slapped in the air, snaffled at mid off! Again Masakadza made room, but Saifuddin followed him, cramping his attempted smear down the ground. He couldn't get under it, and Sabbir tumbles forward at mid off to hold a very sharp catch 56/3
    6.4 short, pulled, and caught! Ervine didn't look too rushed, but simply didn't time it as he'd have liked. Mosaddek was perfectly positioned at deep midwicket, and juggles the take, but holds on 51/2
    8.1 and he strikes first ball! Williams is caught in two minds, aiming down the ground but checking his shot. The end result is the simplest of return catches back to Mosaddek 56/4
    9.3 needless run out! Burl fends a quicker one into the leg side, and Maruma sets off. Burl initially takes a step down the wicket, but then stops and sends him back. But he's too late. Maruma turns on his heels and dives for his crease, but a sharp throw from Shakib catches him short, Mustafizur getting himself into position and whipping the bails off 63/5

    2.6 cleans him up with an inch-perfect yorker! Liton backed away too far and too soon, so far they were feeding him outside off, but this was straight, full and right up in the blockhole. Zimbabwe have an opening after a pretty shoddy start 26/1
    3.1 slower ball full around off and the impetuousness of the Bangladesh batsmen is showing! Soumya Sarkar wanted to loft this over the infield, got it off the toe end and just scooped a simple catch to mid-off to really bring Zimbabwe into the game here 26/2
    4.3 and Shakib goes to an atrocious stroke! It was a length ball, angled across, Shakib was rooted to the crease and chased it with just his hands, only managing a healthy nick to slip to leave his team precariously placed 29/4
    3.4 short one at the body does trickl! Mushfiqur was looking to help this along somewhere towards fine-leg but seemed to take his eyes off it as it hurried onto him and took the shoulder of the blade for a simple catch to Taylor behind the wickets 27/3
    8.1 plays back to a flatter one and given by the umpire, Burl's having a ball! Looks very very leg side, it was a length ball, angled in, he tried to work it to the leg side off the backfoot and missed as it skid on, he reviews but ball tracking reveals it would have just kissed leg stump. Pretty unlucky, you'd have to say, didn't look out to begin with. But since the decision was out, the benefit of doubt goes to the umpire 56/5
    9.3 Burl's back in play and takes a blinder! Just can't keep him out of the game! It was full outside off, he shuffled and slog swept it high into the night sky to the left of deep square leg, from where Burl had to make considerable ground before diving full length and grabbing it inches from the ground 60/6

    17.2 full toss outside off, drilled to extra cover but the captain, Hamilton Masakadza takes it calmly to his right to buy Zimbabwe time. End of a fine T20 innings from the youngster 142/7
