So, that's it from this one-off Test. Bangladesh have prevailed over the visitors and now the action switches to white ball cricket. Now, Bangladesh take on Zimbabwe in the 1st of the 3-match ODI series which begins on 1st March 2020 at 1300 local (0700 GMT). Till then take care and cheers!!!
Bangladesh skipper, Mominul Haque says that sometimes as a captain we have to adjust with the difficulty start to the career. He further says that the guys played well as a team. He praises Nayeem Hasan, Mushfiqur Rahim and Najmul Hasan for their efforts. He adds that he is happy to score some runs and contribute to the teams cause. He ends by saying that the boys are eager to play some white ball cricket and hopes that they win there too.
For his brilliant unbeaten knock of 203 runs Mushfiqur Rahim is adjudged as the Man Of The Match. He says that they badly needed a win as they lost the last 6 matches they played previously. He praises Najmul Hasan Shanto for playing brilliantly. He further says that he was lucky to make it big and get to a double ton. He mentions that they played well in all the three departments. Further says that he hopes to repeat this performace in coming games.
Zimbabwe skipper, Craig Ervine says that it was nice to get runs but he says that he looks to take the positives from this game. He also says that they got starts but failed to convert them. Further says that the bowlers did not hit the right lines and lengths as compared to their Bangladesh counterparts who made them work hard for the runs. He also says that they work hard to gain the momentum but throw it away by poor shot selection.
In the end, poor batting, poor bowling and poor fielding resulted them ending on a losing side and that too getting humiliated with and innings loss. Stay tuned for the presentations...
As far Bangladesh's batting is concerned Saif Hassan departed cheaply but a 78-run stand between the experienced Tamim Iqbal and Najmul Hasan Shanto revived their innings. Tamim departed in the 40's and then Najmul Hasan Shanto followed him after a well compiled 71 runs. Then came a marathon partnership of 222 runs between Mushfuqur Rahim and Mominul Haque. The duo reached to their respective tons too. The latter though departed but the former reached to his double ton. In the end, Bangladesh ended up gaining a massive 295-run lead. Talking of the Zimbabwe bowlers they were poor in their approach. Dishing out freebies and that just did not do justice to them as they struggled to take wickets regularly.
Coming to the match, Zimbabwe won the toss and chose to bat. They put on 265 in the first innings courtesy a 111-run stand between skipper Craig Ervine and Prince Masvuare. Masvaure though was dismissed in the 60's but Ervine continued to play his game and eventually got to his 3rd Test ton. His departure soon opened the floodgates. For Bangladesh, Nayeem Hasan and Abu Jayed both took 4 wickets apiece to restrict Zimbabwe under 270.
Soon after the Lunch break, Zimbabwe lost Sikandar Raza who was batting well on 47 but a brilliant effort in the field from Mushfiqur Rahim saw him heading back to the pavilion. After that it was just a matter of time as till when can Zimbabwe avoid the inevitable. Timycen Maruma played fearlessly as he made 41 but lacked support at the other end. Once Maruma got dismissed the game was over there and then. Nayeem Hasan was the chief destroyer as he took 5 wickets in this innings and was ably supported by Taijul Islam who also took 4 wickets.
A thumping win for the Bangla Tigers. They have broken their 6-match losing streak in the longest format. They were brilliant and clinical in their approach. 9 wickets taken by spinners tells the story in itself. Bangladesh began the day superbly by strangling the run flow and picking a couple of quick wickets early on before a 60-run stand between Sikandar Raza and Craig Ervine revived slightest of hope for the visitors. But Skipper, Ervine's wicket at the stroke of Lunch snatched away all the momentum they had got.
OUT! LBW! Three reds and Tshuma has to walk back to the pavilion. Tossed up delivery on middle, Tshuma looks to defend but gets hit on the pads. The bowler appeals for lbw and the umpire raises his finger. Tshuma immediately goes for the review. Ultra Edge shows there is no bat. Ball Tracker shows that it is hitting the middle stump. BANGLADESH WIN BY AN INNINGS AND 106 RUNS!
An appeal for lbw! Tshuma takes the review. The onfield call is out and let's see what the replays show. Ultra Edge comes in and it confirms that there is no bat involved. Let's see what the Ball-Tracker has to show. Impact in line and hitting the leg pole. That's it Charlton Tshuma has to take the walk back.
