  • The Zimbabwean players get into a huddle. Charlton Tshuma gets his debut Test cap, amidst a small procession. Now, out come the batsmen. Saif Hassan and Tamim Iqbal are the openers. Donald Tiripano to bowl first up, to Tamim. Here we go...
  • Excellent self-belief and discipline from Bangladesh. At no point did they get frustrated, believing that the wicket will come at some point of time or the other and eventually, the dismissals did come. Everyone bowled well but Abu Jayed and Nayeem Hasan hogged the limelight with 4 wickets apiece. The bowlers will now hope to put their feet for at least 2 days in the pavilion.
  • Not the best bit of batting efforts from Zimbabwe. They started solidly, being 118/1 but then the middle order could not quite capitalize. Only three batsmen reached 30, which is never enough in Test cricket. On a slow deck, a minimum of 300 is necessary. They have fallen at least 40-50 runs short.
  • A bit of frustration for the home side but it eventually gets the work done. It has been hard work, they have toiled hard but ensured that not too many runs have been scored on this deck. The bowling has been excellent, keeping things tight.
  • 106.3 OUT! CAUGHT! The last wicket is taken at last. Neither Abu Jayed nor Nayeem Hasan wins the battle of 5-fer. Full and outside off, Chakabva lines up for a slog sweep but only manages to get a massive top edge. The ball only goes as far as short mid-wicket, where Nayeem Hasan runs back a touch, keeps his eyes on the ball, circles a touch and then takes it nicely. ZIMBABWE FINISH ON 265!
  • 106.2 Landed outside off, left alone.
  • 106.1 Full and outside off, Chakabva looks to defend but the ball spins away and beats the outside edge.
  • Taijul Islam returns. 27-1-90-1 so far.
  • 105.6 The batsman defends it from within the crease. 265/9
  • 105.5 Down the leg side, flicked through mid-wicket for a single. Chakabva moves to 30. The stand moves to 20.
  • 105.4 Very full, around off, watchfully blocked out.
  • 105.3 Outside off, driven straight to mid off.
  • 105.2 Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 105.1 Outside off, punched off the back foot for a single. That spoils all the efforts of Abu Jayed in the previous over, to keep Nyauchi on strike for the entire over.
  • 104.6 FOUR! A boundary to end the over. A short ball, around middle, Chakabva pulls it over mid-wicket for a boundary. 263/9
  • 104.5 Full and outside off, driven straight to cover.
  • 104.5 WIDE. And again. In an attempt to keep Chakabva away from strike, Jayed is firing it wide outside off. Left alone.
  • 104.5 WIDE. A length ball, miles outside off, outside the pitch, left alone. Wided.
  • 104.4 Landed outside off, pulled towards mid-wicket for a single.
  • 104.3 FOUR! Nicely done. A length ball, outside off, Nyauchi arches back and ramps it over gully to the third man fence!
  • 104.2 The batsman has defended it by getting right behind the line of the delivery.
  • 104.1 Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • DRINKS BREAK. A slow opening hour, as on Day 1. Zimbabwe started solidly, not exactly in terms of runs but in terms of watching the ball and getting right behind it. However, Tiripano's wicket started the wicket-flow and the hosts are just a wicket away from putting their feet in the pavilion and hoping to rest for a day or two. Can the visitors get some quick runs? Get as close to 300 as possible?
  • 103.6 The batsman appears to have been struck on the thigh pad. 252/9
  • 103.5 Full on middle, flicked towards square leg.
  • 103.4 Short and around middle, Chakabva looks to pull but misses and gets hit on the arm.

  • 102.5 Landed outside off, Nyauchi looks to defend but the ball holds its line and beats the outside edge.
  • 102.4 Full and outside off, driven through the covers for a single.
  • 102.3 Full and outside off, a touch wide, Chakabva looks to reach out but then decides to let it go. The ball goes off the bottom edge towards first slip.
  • 102.2 Outside off, left alone.
  • 102.1 Full and outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 101.6 NOT OUT. But a good ball. Tossed up around middle, Nyauchi looks to flick but gets an inside edge onto the pads. The ball lobs to silly point and the appeal is made for the catch. Umpire Joel Wilson calms the players down and walks across to his partner Paul Reiffel. They discuss and then refer it upstairs, with the soft signal as NOT OUT. The third umpire has multiple replays to check and eventually sees that the ball has bounced, then hit the pads and goes to silly point. 251/9
  • Is that a catch? Is that a bump ball? Bangladesh are confident. The umpires confer and then refer it upstairs. The soft signal is NOT OUT. Replays show that the ball bounced before hitting the pad and then lobbing to silly point.
  • 101.5 Full and outside off, Regis comes down the track and flicks it towards deep mid-wicket to take a single on the 5th ball.
  • 101.4 FOUR! SLAP! 250 UP FOR ZIMBABWE. Full and around off, Chakabva gets down and sweeps it through mid-wicket!

  • 99.5 Full and outside off, Nyauchi thinks about playing but then looks to withdraw his bat. Is beaten.
  • Victor Nyauchi is the last man in.
  • 99.4 OUT! LBW! The innings is decelerating at a rapid pace now. Number 9 falls. The arm ball, pitching around middle, Tshuma lunges to defend but the ball skids through, hits the front pad, the back pad and then goes to first slip. Taijul appeals and up goes the finger! Crashing into the leg stump.
  • 99.3 Full and outside off, turning away, left alone.
  • 99.2 Down the leg side, flicked through mid-wicket for a single.

  • Ainsley Ndlovu walks in at number 9, replacing Tiripano.

  • Welcome back for the afternoon session. The two Zimbabwe batsmen Craig Ervine and Prince Masvaure walk out to the middle to resume their innings. Bangladesh players are also out and are in all readiness to start the session. Nayeem Hasan will start the proceedings.
  • ... Day 1, Session 2 ...
  • Bangladesh's bowling was superb with both the opening bowlers being spot on. They beat the bat of the Zimbabwean batsmen frequently and Abu Jayed got into the wickets column. Since the introduction of spinners, the runs have started to leak. Will Bangladesh strike after the break or will Zimbabwe continue to grind it out in the middle? Join us for the afternoon session in a while.
  • A good session of Test match cricket. It started slowly and then picked up pace. Zimbabwe won the toss and elected to bat first on a wicket which had an even covering of grass. The two openers Prince Masvaure and Kevin Kasuza started watchfully as they played out the opening bowlers by defending anything which was in line with the stumps. They picked up pace gradually and started scoring briskly. In the process they lost Kasuza to Abu Jayed but since then, skipper Craig Ervine and Prince Masvaure have steadied the ship with a gritty stand of 73 runs. Both the batsmen were severe on the spinners as they swept and reverse swept them constantly.

  • Hello and a warm welcome to the one-off Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe in Mirpur. The hosts experienced a tough time in Pakistan and would like to start afresh at home.

Without doubt, Bangladesh will be the favourites but they cannot afford to take the African minnows lightly.

Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe Live Score (TEST) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • Zimbabwe, on the other hand, had no clues to the onslaught by Rahim and Mominul. They were bowling it here and there, conceding easy runs to the Bangla batters and now the batters have a tough job on their hands. Ainsley Ndlovu bowled well while others were very disappointing. They were bolwing negative lines and lengths, which was not even enough to trouble the batters. Now they have to bat and bat as long as possible to have any chances of a draw. There is rain predicted for the fourth and fifth day. Surely Zimbabwe will hope that the predictions come true. Join us in a while for the third innings.
  • Rahim has declared immediately after getting to his double-century. It ends a brilliant innings for Bangladesh and they have got a lead of 295 runs. Bangladesh lost an early wicket in the form of Saif Hassan and then Tamim Iqbal along with Najmul Hossain Shanto steadied things up. Once they fell, it was the partnership between Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim that defined the innings. They stitched a 222-run partnership and once Mominul Haque fell after his century, it was Das and Rahim who did the damage. They took the lead to above 250 and when Rahim reached his 3rd double ton, they eventually declared.

  • We are back for the final session of Day 3. The Zimbabwe players stride out to the middle followed by Mushfiqur Rahim and Liton Das. Victor Nyauchi will start with the ball.
  • ... Day 3, Session 3 ...
  • In the final session of Day 3, Bangladesh would look to keep on batting while Zimbabwe would hope to pick up the remaining wickets as quickly as possible. Will we see a fightback from Zimbabwe? Join us at 1430 Local (0830 GMT) for the final session.
  • Zimbabwe, on the other hand, would feel slightly better with the two wickets that they managed to pick up in this session but they would know that they are way behind in this game and they need to pick the remaining wickets quickly if they do not want Bangladesh to run away with the game, if that has not happened already. Ainsley Ndlovu was the pick of the bowlers scalping two wickets but the others were disappointing.
  • A better session for Zimbabwe but Bangladesh still hold the cards in this Test match. Rahim and Mominul started the session positively and were going good till Ndlovu removed the Bangladesh skipper with a terrific return catch. Then Mithun looked good for his short stint but Ndlovu struck to remove them but since then Das and Rahim have played out the remaining overs with ease, with the latter looking set to reach his 150. They scored 91 runs in 28 overs and have swelled up their lead to 177.

Good decision in the end as the replays show that there was a big inside edge on that one.

  • 101.4 NO BALL! What drama! Tiripano bowls a full delivery around off, Rahim moves to the off side and looks to flick but gets hit on the pads. Tiripano appeals but the umpire is unmoved. Tiripano wants the review and then convinces Ervine to go for the review. The replays does not even reach the Ultra Edge as the replays show that Tiripano's back foot was outside the side crease. They show the Ball Tracker and it shows that it was umpire's call. They don't lose the review though.
  • After thinking for a long time, Craig Ervine has reviewed an LBW decision! Rahim is the man in question! It looks not out. Let's see what happens. Hang on, the replays roll in and they show it was a no ball as the bowler's back foot was outside the side crease.

  • ... Day 3, Session 2 ...
  • So, what to expect after the break? Bangladesh would look to continue batting and swell up their lead while Zimbabwe, on the other hand, need some inspiration from somewhere and hope that they pick up some quick wickets. Will Bangladesh continue to dominate or will the Rhodesians make a comeback? Join us at 12.10 pm local (0610 GMT) for the second session.
  • The fact that the visitors struggled stems from the fact that there were only 2 maidens bowled in the session, that too, consecutive ones from Tshuma. From the 78th over, there has not been a single maiden and that tells you how easily the runs have been scored. They need some quick wickets in order to have a chance to make a comeback in this game. But more than that, they need an inspiration. Who will provide them that?
  • The lead has now swelled to 86. Mominul Haque and Mushfiqur Rahim continued from where they left off and made easy work of the Zimbabwe bowlers. They are in a middle of a huge partnership and going strong at the moment. There is nothing happening with the ball, not much spin, no seam movement, no swing, nothing. If nothing is available at this hour of the day, then all the best, Zimbabwe, for a long leather-hunt.
  • Well, that was a damp squib for all Mushy fans! They expected him to get to his century before Lunch, but no, this is not a fairy tale going around.

  • Pitch report - Tino Mawoyo is there for the pitch report, he says that the pitch has some assistance for the seamers. States that the Zimbabwean bowlers needed to pitch the ball a little bit further. Adds that there is a bit of grass on the wicket and the bowlers need to make use of it.
  • Hello and welcome to the coverage of the one-off Test between Bangladesh and Zimbabwe. Bangladesh batted superbly on Day 2 to get the deficit down to just 25 runs and the three 50-plus stands for the hosts deflated the visitors. Skipper Mominul Haque is still out there and he has Mushfiqur Rahim for company. Both these batsmen will first look to wipe out the deficit without any further damage and then would want to bat long to push Zimbabwe out of the game. The visitors were decent with the ball the other day but were deprived of wickets on a regular basis. A fresh day to begin with and they would want to take quick wickets to dry up the run flow. Stay tuned for all the action that unfolds.
  • ... Day 3, Session 1 ...
  • Okay! 265 looked to be a good score on a slow deck, probably 30-40 shy of a par score but Bangladesh's rapid batting has got the deficit down to just 25. The batsmen will now be aiming to bat through the whole of Monday and get a lead close to 300. Join us on 24th February, 2020 at 9.30 am local (0330 GMT) for all the action from Day 3. ADIOS! TAKE CARE!
  • Earlier in the day, Bangladesh bowlers took just over an hour to wrap things up in the morning, with Abu Jayed and Nayeem Hasan taking 4 wickets apiece. Both bowled really well, with Jayed moving the ball in the air while Nayeem making it spin off the deck.
  • A near perfect batting day for Bangladesh. Yes, 3 batsmen in the top 4 wasted their starts but it can also be viewed as 4 batsmen in the top 5 crossed the 30-mark and faced more than 50 balls. They spent time in the middle and then started to accumulate runs quickly.
  • Not a great outing with the ball for the visitors. They started well, got the early wicket but then were subjected to 3 successive 50-plus stands. There was barely any movement or swing for the seamers while the spinners struggled for turn. A quality spinner is being missed, which can be seen by the fact that Sikandar Raza had to bowl 22 overs.
  • 120/1 in 33 overs in that final session. Bangladesh have really pressed it in, pushing Zimbabwe on the mat. The first two sessions did feel as if Zimbabwe did have some sort of a chance if quick wickets fell but the Mominul-Rahim stand has almost shut the door.

It is that part of the day where light starts to fade and batsmen start playing for the next day. That could open the door for the bowlers.

They need to keep believing. Join us back at 2.30 pm local (0830 GMT) for the final session. 33 overs left in the day.

Can Bangladesh show some patience before playing their strokes? The players are out in the middle. Donala Tiripano will start off proceedings to Najmul. Here we go...
  • ... DAY 2, SESSION 2 ...
  • Hmmm... so that makes Lunch just a bit tastier for Zimbabwe. They could not get too many runs this morning, but have managed to get a wicket before the break. The bowling has been decent but Bangladesh just need to be a bit cautious here. A few strokes were played, perhaps a bit too many, given the time left for the break. That is what consumed Saif. The visitors will aim to keep bowling disciplined lines. Join us back at 12.10 pm local (0610 GMT) for the second session. 63 overs left in the day.

  • 7.2 The batsman defends it from within the crease.
  • 7.1 Outside off, punched off the back foot.
  • Sikandar Raza to probably bowl the final over before Lunch.
  • Tamim is fuming. He looks at the square leg umpire, expecting Lunch to be called but the umpire coolly walks across to his position for the next over. Tamim is not happy and complains to his partner that it is 11.30 on the clock but as per our clocks, there is still a minute to go.

  • 3.5 Good length ball outside off, watchfully defended.
  • 3.4 On a good length outside off, watchfully defended.

  • 2.2 Well outside off, left alone.

Bangladesh Vs Zimbabwe Live Score (TEST) Ball by Ball Commentary

  • 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.
  • 57.3 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.
