    12.5 beaten on the inside edge, rapped on the pads, given! Madhevere hits Tamim in front of his stumps to get his first dismissal in ODIs. Or does he? Tamim reviews the decision. He hasn't got an inside edge on it, and ball tracking shows that it's plumb. Madhevere breaks through, ensuring that the previous DRS error doesn't haunt Zimbabwe. This is a role he has played umpteen times for the Under 19 team, and Madhevere is showing he can do it at the top level too. 60/1
    25.4 but the comeback is immediate! Mutombodzi fires down a quick one, full on an off stump line, to beat another sweep and strike him on the pad. There's an appeal, the finger goes up. The review is not an option as Bangladesh have already used up their quota, so he's got to go! Ah, and in fact replays show it would have missed the off stump. Had he been able to, the review would have saved him! 140/2
    33.6 gone! Mushfiqur aims yet another glide down to third man, but he can only place the ball straight into the gloves of the wicketkeeper behind the stumps. Zimbabwe strike, somewhat against the run of play, and the stand is broken. The shot was on, but the ball perhaps just bounced a little more than he was expecting. 182/3
    45.5 full length, and he looks to flick this away. There's an appeal for leg before, but not given. Zimbabwe review this. It's a fullish ball, and seems to have beaten the bat. There was no response from the umpire, suggesting he thought it took the bat along the way. Replays suggest it went on and hit the foot on the bounce, with no contact with bat on the way. Just a question now of where it was headed then. It just hits the base of the leg stump, and that will be a wicket for Mpofu. 274/4
    47.5 that's out, no doubt as he raps him on the full with a straight ball! Mithun looks to shuffle across and whip this away, but is taken by surprise by one of the quicker balls in this over. Mpofu searches for the yorker, but overcooks it a touch. All is well, when you trap the batsman in front. Bangladesh have no reviews left anyway 289/5
    not out
    48.5 holes out this time! Mumba shortens the length a bit more, and Miraz looks for a repeat of the flog over mid-wicket, but Kamunhukamwe dives forward and pouches this very well, running in a few yards 298/6

    1.4 oh, he's played on to this one! Plays from the crease, and Saifuddin does a smart job by getting one to hold its line, after having made the first three just move away a touch. The batsman is stuck inside the crease, as he tries a drive, but leaves a big gap between his body and the bat. Inside edge, and that goes back and makes a mess of the stumps. Saif celebrates with his trademark arms spread wide open. Bangladesh have the perfect start with the ball as well! 1/1
    8.4 Chibhabha holes out to mid-on! That's the benefit of bowling wicket-to-wicket and without great pace. This was straight, and on a good length, and Chibhabha sets himself up for a lofted straight drive. Just skews the bat a touch, and the ball goes to the edge of the circle straight back over the bowler. Mid-on gets around and accepts the catch gleefully 23/3
    7.4 this could be close again! Chakabva steps across to paddle this down, and it runs down to fine leg for four. But Saifuddin is convinced that this has hit the pad in line. He has walked a long way across the stumps in trying to whip it away, and has also missed the ball. That's a close one. Could well be given out! Three reds, and a perfect review from Bangladesh this time 23/2
    13.2 bowled him! Taylor was eyeing up the midwicket boundary, where there is a big open space, but the ball skids on with the arm, through his slog sweep, and rattling into the stumps. Zimbabwe lose another one, and they're sinking rapidly now. Drinks come out onto the field, with Bangladesh right on top. 44/4
    23.4 sliced to cover, another one goes! The ball was looped up outside off, and Madhevere, perhaps a little frustrated by a string of dots, aimed an expansive shot through the covers. It's hit well, but he couldn't keep it down, and the ball flies straight to Mashrafe, who makes no mistake 84/6
    22.1 top edged, and caught! Mustafizur sends down another short one, but with a little more vim this time. Raza leapt into the air to play the pull, but the ball got big on him and he couldn't keep it down. The ball balloons off the top edge, and is safely snaffled near the deep midwicket boundary by Mahmudullah. That's his 61st catch in ODIs, the most for a Bangladesh fielder. After a brief rally, Zimbabwe sink further 79/5
    29.3 length, plays with an open face of the bat towards cover-point, and the fielder effects a direct hit, almost! Out by a quite a distance, at the striker's end, as the batsmen take a needless chance. Some chatter from around the stumps perhaps egging them on to this indiscretion, and Rahim whips the bails off from a flat throw right by the stumps. Good work there by Bangladesh 106/7
    39.1 short, and he looks to swing this away, and holes out to short fine leg. That's that! Length ball, and the swing across the line is always a difficult one to put away on a pitch like this, and he perishes with a gigantic top edge. That's 700 wickets in all formats of the game for Mashrafe, and Mohammad Isam reminds me that he becomes just the fifth bowler to take 100 ODI wickets as captain. The others are Wasim Akram (158), Shaun Pollock (134), Imran Khan (131) and Jason Holder (101). 152/10
    32.3 he drives it back again, but this time doesn't keep it down! Skips down the wicket and chips it back hard, and Mehidy does well to move across to his right and hold a stinger of a return catch. Throws it up in delight. The end is nigh, folks. 109/8
    35.6 through him! Full, fast and Mumba looks to drive down the wicket, but cannot make any contact with this. Hits the base of middle, and Bangladesh inch closer to what could be a record margin of victory in ODIs for them. How big a role has Saifuddin performed for them? Following his cameo with the bat with a superb spell with the ball, new and old! 130/9
