Scorecard summary
Zimbabwe131/10(19.3 overs)
Bangladesh136/6(17.4 overs)

8:30pm: That is all we have for you. Thanks for your company and comments. Do join us back for the second T20 on Sunday. Till then, buh-bye and good night.

Presentation:

Waller, Man of the Match: I just freed myself up and played my game. I did not think too much about it and went for the areas. I am sure the boys will come to the party next game

Chigumbura: Especially after three quick wickets, I thought Waller gave us a chance to defend the score. Today, the pitch was different and it was keeping low. That's where we lost it. We have to make sure we stay positive.

Mashrafe: I am not really satisfied. We got partnerships but we couldn't get through. Waller batted really well today and we got his wicket at the right time.

8:15pm: Bangladesh were jolted by early wickets, Cremer and Chisoro then combined well in the middle overs, but Mahmudullah showed calmness and as did Mashrafe. Eventually, Bangladesh clinched it by four wickets. They were also helped by Panyangara who lost his rhythm at the death and sprayed the ball all round the shop. Perhaps, an extra 20 runs from Zimbabwe would have tested Bangladesh further.

Bharath Seervi, our statsman strikes: "First time the Bangladesh team is without a left-arm spinner. In all their previous 44 T20Is they had at least 1 left-arm spinner "

Niaz: "Mash for man of the match, please :-)"

Abir Utsha : "Waller should be judged Man of the Match."

Mahmudullah: I just did it for the team. My role is to put on partnerships and finish.
