Fall of wickets: 1-15 (Tadiwanashe Marumani, 1.5 ov), 2-42 (Regis Chakabva, 5.2 ov), 3-99 (Dion Myers, 13.3 ov), 4-122 (Sikandar Raza, 15.4 ov), 5-139 (Wessly Madhevere, 17.4 ov), 6-166 (Luke Jongwe, 19.6 ov)
1.5 to T Marumani, bowled him, Mahedi strikes back! Sends down a flatter delivery from around the wicket, brings it in with the arm from outside off and beats Marumani's push down the ground. 15/1
13.3 to D Myers, lofted straight down to deep point. Short of a length ball just outside off, and he rides the bounce to try and ramp that to the off side. But he probably ends up timing it too well to find the man on the fence. 99/3
17.4 to W Madhevere, grabbed at extra cover. He skips down to this good length ball on leg, and also bowled from back of the hand. Looked to slice that away by making room outside leg, but is foxed by the lack of pace on the ball, as he skies that to the fielder. Brilliant innings by Madhevere though. 139/5
19.6 to LM Jongwe, taken by Shakib at deep square leg. Change of pace on a good length on middle and leg, as Jongwe backs away to try and pull that. But he mistimes that, with the fielder taking a few steps forward to complete the catch, and with that, the Zimbabwe innings. 166/6
5.2 to RW Chakabva, swings big for the wide delivery outside off, two fielders get under it again but this time taken comfortably by Shoriful at mid-off. Chakabva went after the flatter delivery, miscued it high in the air and there was enough time for a few fielders to get under it, which isn't always a good thing. 42/2

TOTAL19.5 Ov (RR: 7.21)143
Fall of wickets: 1-14 (Mohammad Naim, 2.1 ov), 2-17 (Soumya Sarkar, 2.4 ov), 3-45 (Shakib Al Hasan, 6.4 ov), 4-52 (Mahmudullah, 8.1 ov), 5-53 (Mahedi Hasan, 8.4 ov), 6-68 (Nurul Hasan, 11.2 ov), 7-109 (Shamim Hossain, 15.1 ov), 8-127 (Afif Hossain, 17.1 ov), 9-141 (Mohammad Saifuddin, 19.2 ov), 10-143 (Taskin Ahmed, 19.5 ov)
11.2 to Nurul Hasan, slashed to deep point. This time Nurul went down the track to the short ball which was wide of off, and sent that sailing. For once it looked that it was far enough to clear the fence, but all it had was the height and just enough distance to find the fielder. 68/6
17.1 to Afif Hossain, pulled to fine leg, and he's gone. Steps across to this good length ball on middle and off, and swings his bat to try and clear the fence. But that's instead hit really flat to the fielder, and that's also probably the game for Zimbabwe. 127/8
2.1 to Mohammad Naim, strikes first ball, Naim chops on! Naim stayed back in the crease and wanted to glide the ball late behind square but got the inside edge and onto his stumps. Muzarabani raises his arms in celebration and is joined by his team-mates. 14/1
2.4 to Soumya Sarkar, Sarkar gone as well, it's gone straight to Raza at cover! Muzarabani has struck twice in four balls, what a start. Sarkar was clearly looking to attack but this time he sliced the full delivery inside out and straight to cover where Raza stuck his hands out over his head to pouch that. 17/2
15.1 to Shamim Hossain, holes out to long-on! Full and wide of off, and he stretches out for this ball which was away from his body. He's almost down on his back knee, and finds the fielder with his hit. An outstanding knock on debut comes to an end, and remember he was playing with the pressure of a pretty high required run rate. 109/7
19.2 to Mohammad Saifuddin, caught at extra cover while going for a heave. This was on a good length and wide of off again, as he made room to try and swing the bat, but could only sky that to the fielder. 141/9
19.5 to Taskin Ahmed, taken at long-on, and that's over. Good length ball bowled wide of off, as he swings his bat to play across the line. The ball finds Masakadza again, and he can't stop himself from celebrating with a smile and a shake of the shoulder. Zimbabwe win, finally. 143/10
6.4 to Shakib Al Hasan, taken at cover by Raza at the edge of the circle, big blow for Bangladesh! Shakib came down the track but couldn't take it on the full, Masakadza was smart to pull the length back outside off and Shakib still went after it, chipping it to Raza for a straightforward catch. 45/3
8.1 to Mahmudullah, he strikes again with another big wicket, Mahmudullah holes out to long-on! Mahmudullah went down on a knee and lofted that length ball from the stumps really high and down the ground, but a patient Musakanda (sub fielder) waited at the long-on boundary and stayed still to take it comfortably in the end with a leap timed perfectly. 52/4
8.4 to Mahedi Hasan, he's thrown it away, what has Mahedi done here! Shakib and Mahmudullah have just fallen, the asking rate is 10 per over, and he still comes down for a big, wild swing which he can't connect with at all. It lobs high, kisses the sky and falls in the safe hands of Burl at long-off. 53/5
