The first match went Bangladesh’s way and it was a dominant victory for the home side. They batted first and posted a huge score of 321 led by Liton Das who scored a magnificent 126. He was well supported by Mohammad Mithun and some lusty blows from Mohammad Saifuddin in the end helped them post that score. Their bowling worked wonders, bowling Zimbabwe out for just 152. Mohammad Saifuddin was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets and the other bowlers contributed as well. They would want to repeat the performance of the first game and win the series with one game to spare.
