Bangladesh beat Zimbabwe by 5 runs

Bangladesh defeated Zimbabwe by five runs in the fourth game of the five-match T20 series at Sher-e-Bangla National Cricket Stadium in Mirpur on Friday night. 

 Zimbabwe captain Sikandar Raza won the toss and sent Bangladesh to bat first. Bangladesh managed 143 runs with loss of all wickets in 19.5 overs.

Two openers Tanzid Hasan Tamim and Soumya Sarkar provided Bangladesh with a flying start putting 101 runs on the board together.

However, the collapse began once the stand was broken out as Bangladeshi batters followed the come-and-go policy.

Apart from Tanzid's 52 and Soumya's 41, no batters could stand before the Zimbabwean bowlers to carry the innings long, losing all wickets in 143 runs.

In reply to 143, Zimbabwe started falling under pressure from the beginning as they kept losing wickets at regular intervals.

The real drama came in the last four overs as both teams went ahead of one another in ball to ball.

From Bangladesh side, Shakib Al Hasan bagged the highest four wickets. Mustafizur Rahman and Taskin Ahmed picked up three and two wickets respectively with their economical bowling.
