Daily Mail UK – DHAKA, Bangladesh (AP) – Opener Tamim Iqbal and all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan continued their rich vein of form as Bangladesh maintained its winning-streak in the tri-nation one-day tournament on Tuesday, recording a 91-run win against Zimbabwe.

Summary

  • Tamim posted his third successive half-century and Shakib made his second in succession to help Bangladesh to 216-9 on a tricky wicket before the latter finished with 3-34 to dismiss Zimbabwe for just 125 in 36.3 overs.
  • Zimbabwe needed to win the match to keep an advantage over the third team in the tournament Sri Lanka but failed to deal with Shakib’s spin and Mashrafe Mortaza’s pace in the first powerplay.
  • Mustafizur then returned to his second spell to clean up the tail, including the wicket of Zimbabwe’s highest scorer Sikandar Raza for 39.
  • Tamim and Shakib kept the side on track, combining for 106 for the second wicket.
