Zimbabwe skittled out for paltry 125, Bangladesh win by 91 runs

Star all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan smashed a half-century and claimed three wickets as Bangladesh thrashed Zimbabwe by 91 runs in a tri-nation one-day worldwide tournament in Dhaka on Tuesday. The three Zimbabwe spinners - Cremer, Raza and Waller - gave away just four boundaries in 27 overs between them, and gave away runs at 3.81 per over. The early wickets meant the chase never really got going and they were forced to play catch-up throughout the chase.

Zimbabwe needed to win the match to keep an advantage over the third team in the tournament Sri Lanka but failed to deal with Shakib's spin and Mashrafe Mortaza's pace in the first powerplay.

Mustafizur then returned to his second spell to clean up the tail, including the wicket of Zimbabwe's highest scorer Sikandar Raza for 39. Shakib made a fifty in the first innings as well, adding 106 for the second wicket with Man of the Match Tamim Iqbal, who scored his third fifty in a row. With the dying pitching offering no pace at all for stroke-making, it was always going to be a tough task for the Zimbabwe batsmen even after they kept Bangladesh to 216 for 9.

His googly sparked Bangladesh's collapse from a position of dominance as it appeared set for a big total, thanks to Tamim. Medium-pacer Kyle Jarvis chipped in with three wickets.

Zimbabwe's Jarvis credited the batting effort of Shakib and Tamim. Bangladesh have won the toss and have opted to bat. In the process, he became the only Bangladeshi batsman to cross 6,000 runs.

Cremer ended the day with four wickets to his name while Jarvis had three.

Zimbabwe were knocked out of the contest when they were reduced to 20 for 3 in the seventh over.

Sri Lanka and Bangladesh meet in the last round-robin match on Thursday.
