Bangladesh set 168-run target for Zimbabwe
The Tigers managed to score 167 runs losing 3 wickets in the 20 overs in the second match of the four-match T20 series at Khulna today.
Lower order batsmen Sabbir Rahman and Shakib Al Hasan contribute a lot in setting this fighting score.
Sabbir was unbeaten on 43 from 30 balls while Shakib was on 27 from 17. Both of them made full use of the loose deliveries on offer and didn’t allow any quiet overs when they were at the crease.
Stylish batsman Soumya Sarkar scored a brisk 43.
Mushfiqur Rahim retired hurt at the last delivery of 15th over and then Shakib Al Hasan joined Sabbir Rahman.
For Zimbabwe, Muzurabani, Masakadza and Cremer took a wicket each. Cremer and Vitori were quite economical in their spells as well.
A fifty-run stand in only 5.4 overs between Sabbir Rahman and Mushfiqur Rahim raised hopes of a challenging total for Bangladesh.
