It has turned out as a brilliant outing for Zimbabwe in Bangladesh. They knocked down the hosts pretty convincingly to take an unassailable lead of 1-0 in the two-match Test series. The heroic knock from Sean Williams followed by the collective bowling effort made things easy for the visitors.

Initially, it was Zimbabwe, who won the toss and asked the home side to roll their arms. It wasn’t a fruitful decision, as they lost Brian Chari and Brendon Taylor in the quick succession to see scorecard read 47/2.

Sean Williams delivered the goods:

However, skipper Maskadza and Sean Williams looked solid in the middle to hand Zimbabwe a decent total on the board. Just when things looked bleak for Bangladesh, Abu Jayed knocked out Masakadza to bring back the hosts in the game.

Sikandar Raza also went back for 19 to his name. However, then came the resilient partnership from Sean Williams and Peter Moor, who played their skin out to push the total past 250 on the board.

They all looked set to score a massive tally on the board, but the tailenders haven’t stood in the middle, which saw them concluding their innings on 282. In reply, Bangladesh never looked settled in the crease.

In total, seven of their batsmen have been knocked out for a single digit to their name to see themselves register 141 on the board. If not Anamul’s 41 and Rahim’s 31, Bangladesh would have been bundled out for a pretty low score.

Taking a big lead, Zimbabwe added 182 runs to it and set the target of 332 runs on the board for the hosts. During the chase, Bangladesh had been knocked out for a mere 169 on the board.
