Recent Match Report – Bangladesh vs Zimbabwe 2nd ODI 2022

50 overs Bangladesh 290 for 9 (Mahmudullah 80*, Tamim 50, Raza 3-56) v Zimbabwe

Zimbabwe have to score 291 runs to win their first ODI series against a major side in five years, after they restricted Bangladesh to 290 in 50 overs. Sikandar Raza, who made a match-winning unbeaten 135 in the first ODI, was the pick of the bowlers with 3-56 while Wessly Madhevere took two wickets.
Bangladesh’s innings dipped between the first and third Powerplays although with a five-man bowling attack they will hope to defend their total. Fifties from Tamim Iqbal and Mahmudullah gave meat to their total, while the majority of the other batters gave away good starts. Mahmudullah top scored with an unbeaten 80 with three sixes and as many fours, as he got to his highest ODI score in five years.

Tamim got Bangladesh off to a sound start with a flurry of boundaries in the first Powerplay. He struck the ball sweetly through the arc between cover and short third, including an upper-cut six off Brad Evans in an over that also had two beautifully timed fours.

Tamim reached his fifty with another well-timed drive; but fell in the following over while trying to hoick Tanaka Chivanga, only to be caught on the square-leg boundary. The dismissal slowly sucked away Bangladesh’s momentum.

Anamul Haque, opening in place of Litton Das, would, however, have considered himself unlucky when Najmul Hossain Shanto’s straight drive brushed Chivanga’s fingers before hitting the stumps at the non-striker’s end. Anamul, who was out of his crease, didn’t wait for the umpire’s decision, and walked off with hand on head, for 20.

Mushfiqur Rahim and Shanto added 50 for the third wicket, before Rahim fell to his favourite shot – the slog-sweep – in the 24th over. Madhevere, who had Mushfiqur’s wicket, added that of Shanto to his part-time off-spin kitty, in the 30th over.

Mahmudullah and Afif Hossain put together an 81-run stand for the fifth wicket, but they scored at 5.92 per over in an advanced stage of the innings. Partly, it was because of the long tail that Bangladesh had picked. Afif fell in the 44th over when his reverse-sweep found Chavanga at short third, off Raza.

The offspinner removed Mehidy Hasan Miraz in his next over, but Mahmudullah struck three sixes in the last four overs to ensure Bangladesh got to a big total. The visitors added 84 runs in the last ten overs, and 44 in the last five, slightly better than what they did in the same stage of the last game.
