Chasing a target of 272 runs, Zimbabwe scored 243 for nine in 50 overs in the first ODI of the three-match series at Sher-e-Bangla National Stadium at Mirpur on Sunday (Oct 21).

Bangladesh’s Mustafizur Rahman broke the stand and took Zhuwao out in 7.1 overs. Zhuwao scored 35 off 24 balls.

The visitor fell for 100/5 in 25.1 overs in face of Bangladesh bowling attacks.

A late fifty by Sean Williams and 37 runs by Kyle Jarvis lift Zimbabwe brought a little hope for the visitors.
