Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe

Sunday, 21 August 2011

Bulawayo, Zimbabwe – Bangladesh captain Shakib Al Hasan and Mahmudullah scored half-centuries, setting the stage for the touring side's spinners to guide the side to a 93-run win over Zimbabwe at Queens Sports Club on Sunday.
Shakib top-scored with 79 runs, facing 71 balls in a knock that included five boundaries and a six. The 24-year-old Bangladesh skipper shared a crucial sixth-wicket stand of 107 runs with Mahmudullah, who was unbeaten on 60 from 67 balls as the visitors reached 253-6.
Right-arm spinner Mahmudullah then tore through Zimbabwe's fragile middle-order to put the Asian side on top. He removed Malcolm Waller (51), Elton Chigumbura (1) and Prosper Utseya (7) as Zimbabwe was bowled out for 160.
